Most of all, she was a mother. After raising her own children, Phyllis took on the roll of babysitter for her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Everything revolved around her family.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husbands, two daughters (Cindy Helton & Shirley Jensen), brother (Donald) & sister (Estella).
Here is a favorite quote of mine. It’s good to keep in mind. “Remember me with smiles, love & laughter. That’s how I’ll remember you all. If you remember me with tears, then don’t remember me at all.”
With much love
