To the Cersley Family ~ Your mother/grandmother was such an amazing person! She dedicated her life to her community and her beloved family in so many ways. There are so few comforting words when we need them most. The passing of the one who first introduced us to this planet and who loved us along its paths is never easy. Our heart aches for you and your family during this difficult time. She will truly be missed, our sincere condolences. ~Gretchen, Jon, Hannah, and Jacob Kaufman

I always loved messing with "Ms. Phyllis" whenever I came to my kids' games. She had a great sense of humor and was always sweet to even the meanest of kids. She will be sorely missed.

For many years I was a salesman who called on Phyllis and she was eternally gracious to me. She had such a kind heart and gentle manner. When I learned of her involvement in the youth leagues, I simply had to umpire some games. Rest In Peace, my friend.
