Phyllis was a member of The Derby Community Church. She worked there as a secretary for over 38 years. The Derby Community Church was a big part of her life. She was always helping others by making people food, taking them out to lunch, or even a car ride.

She enjoyed going camping with “Pete” especially in the summer at Will-O Wood, she loved all her four-legged animals that were like kids to her, and she loved making pies for her husband and members of the Church.

She is survived by her husband.
