  4. Phyllis was a friend of my mother, Virginia. She enjoyed doing things with Phyllis. I know my mom missed not seeing Phyllis the last couple years. I had the privilege to go out to dinner one time with Phyllis and my mom. I enjoyed talking to her. It was impressive to me that she wanted to learn new things even into her later years by attending classes at Penn State. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. I am sure she will be missed, but know that you must all have such fond memories of her.
