We had many laughs while bowling. Our trip to Decatur was something we always laughed about. She always had a smile and was a good friend for many years.

Deepest Sympathy to her family. I had been on Committees with Phyllis and so enjoyed her upbeat happy personality. She had many groups of friends that will surely miss her. Now at rest with Jesus, dear friend, you will be missed.
