Phyllis graduated from St. Patrick High School in Richmond and Summa Cum Laude from the University of Tennessee. She was a member of St. Matthew Catholic Church. Phyllis will be remembered for her gracious and giving spirit, generosity, and hospitality. She had a way of making those around her feel special, included, and comfortable. She was a great listener and put others before herself. While she enjoyed her tennis group (mostly talking at the net), her knitting and book clubs in FL, hunting for bargains, and dancing with her husband, her foremost love was always her family – her loving husband and children and especially her grandchildren. Granna was their #1 supporter and made each one of them feel special.
We will miss this gracious lady, but celebrate her life well lived. She loved well and was well loved. Thank you to everyone who enriched her life.
