    My deepest condolences to Phyllis’s family. We were friends from church, and were THS classmates serving as Songleaders together our Senior Year. I always looked forward to getting together with Phyllis when I would come back to Turlock for a class reunion. She believed in & was a follower of Jesus, so I know that brings you much solace & peace knowing she is with Jesus & walking in sunshine 🌞 ♥️. I will miss my dear friend!!
