    I volunteered with Phyllis for many years at Memorial Medical Center. My memories with her are many, but to sum it up, she was a dear friend and I knew she loved the Lord. Our birthdays were one day apart, but the year was never discussed. The obituary date of birth came as a shock to me, as I am several years behind! I’m sorry to say I lost contact with her in the last several years. Blessings to her family!
