She was a life-long homemaker and devoted herself entirely to her family. In addition to raising her family, she did part-time work at the board of elections and served as 4-H advisor.

As a young wife, she made a profession of faith in Christ and was baptized in 1959 by Symmes Creek Missionary Baptist Church. From that time, she remained faithful to her Savior and was active in service to her church.

At the time of her homegoing, she was a member of Mamre Baptist Church in Kitts Hill. Her legacy of faith and Christian service live on through her children and grandchildren.

In days of better health, she enjoyed trips to Amish country with her family.

Phyllis was an avid reader and is also remembered by her family as a great cook.

Her absence leaves a void in her family and church.
