Phyllis was very creative and her hobbies included cooking, quilting, sewing, needlework, knitting and gardening.

She was always willing to lend a hand whenever needed, whether it be a home cooked meal, a word of advice, or a shoulder to cry on. The love and compassion that filled her heart was a shining example to all she encountered.
