Phyllis' faithfulness to her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was unparalleled. She lived her life to the fullest and enjoyed 'being on the go.' She was a people person who greeted everyone with a smile. She saw the best in everyone, and her family and many friends could always count on her prayers. She was loved by all who knew her and will be truly missed.
