Phyllis was lively and there was never a dull moment when she was around. Phyllis was the life of the party.  She loved to be the best dressed. She was so upbeat and full of life!   She was always the first one on the dance floor. “Hey” she would loudly say, and before you knew it, she had you up on your feet dancing with her. It did not matter if you were the youngest or the oldest in the room. Phyliss loved dancing, cooking, and most of all her family.

Phyllis was known for her feistiness and for having a truly kind heart. She was always understanding towards others.
