The first time I met Phyllis I must have been around eight years old. My mother, sister, and I had gone to visit her. I remember she came walking toward us and I thought she was so beautiful. She had made cupcakes and I was very happy about that! She was so nice to me and I never forgot that. I am deeply saddened by her passing and for my cousin's pain at this time. Don't worry, she is right there beside you cheering you on...

I have so many years worth of fun and funny mrmories to even begin. Working and playing with PV on a daily basis was a highlight of my time at CMRO and I've loved following her and family on FB ever since she left ICAN. PV, you've left a big hole in a lot of hearts but my faith tells me we will reunite and play again so clear a spot for me, I'll see you again some day. Love you dearly lady!

Phyllis was such an amazing friend. We had lots of laughs when I worked at Higbee. Then 20 years later I had the joy of working with her at ICAN. We always had fun. Those memories will always be with me. My thoughts and prayers are with her beautiful family. I am so sorry for your loss. Stephanie Kauth Farnen
