Phyllis was the last remaining member of her graduating class from Wingate High School. Following her marriage to Jim, she was a stay at home mom and homemaker. She had lived in Wingate until moving to Creasy Springs four years ago. Her positive and happy demeanor made her a favorite of the staff.

She was a former member of Pleasant Hill United Church of Christ, Wingate American Legion Auxiliary and the Coal Creek Election Board. She enjoyed crocheting, puzzles, cooking and most of all caring for her family. There was always room for one more at their table.
