The family has my deepest condolences.

I went to grade school in Constance for 4 years with Phyllis and her and I were the only 2 girls in a class of 8 students. I had only seen Phyllis on a few occasions in the last 37 years since I moved away, but we reminisced about the past and still enjoyed seeing each other very much. It was a great walk down memory lane when we would meet. I'll will keep her in my precious thoughts and many prayers.

Dave, boys and all other family and friends:

I'm sorry to hear of Phyllis passing. May you treasure the memories of the good times and now they are all "good times" where she is now. I'm sure my Mom was excited to see her. I always enjoyed chatting with her whenever I saw her at events. She was a fragile soul that couldn't handle the evils of this world, she is now in a place that doesn't have evil and she is reunited with those that went before her including her beloved Nick.

Denise Telthoester

I'm so very sorry for the pain and loss you must be feeling.

Phyllis was a doll and I enjoyed working with her-she usually had a plain cooked potato and deli turkey for lunch, on the go of course :o) I can clearly hear her laugh. Im thankful I seen her and talked with her recently. RIP, Philly.

Trina Regas-Berkelo

Phyllis you were an amazing person.

I only worked with you for a year at the furniture store but you taught me alot and I'm glad I got to know you. Prayers for you on your journey to the spirit world and prayers to your family.

Corisa Bush

Dear Dave and Family,

I remember Phyllis very well, she was very kind to my family and I. She will always be rememebered to me as a very sweet, kind, patient, friendly woman. Growing up I remember her as a mother figure in my very early years. I remember how beautiful she was, and how good she was with Nick, unfortunatly as time went on I didnt get to know her other sons, but remember being very happy that she was blessed with them and knew that she had a lot of love to give to them too. She was such a loving person, everytime I'd see her in later years she always offered me a big tight hug! God Bless her and your family. Very sincerely Brenda Eskins) Malcom.

Brenda Eskins Malcom

So sorry to hear of your loss. Our thoughts are prayers are with you and all of the family.

God Bless.
