In her prime, she loved bowling competitively and playing softball. Phyllis was an amazingly hard worker and retired from Aafes, but the job she took the most pride in was being a wife and mother. She gave her love and effort selflessly. Phyllis gave her time in church, teaching Sunday School alongside her husband, Willie. She gave more of herself in the service of others in her community through volunteering and prayer. Phyllis will forever be remembered for her warm smile, gentle demeanor, and the deep love she had for God and us.
