Love you Phyllis
She was called Phyllis the Diller by Mary Roth. We took her to Las. Vegas and she loved that.she was an awesome care giver rip.
Phyllis the Diller was what my mother in law called her. We enjoyed taking her to Las Vegas after my mother in law passed away. She enjoyed life and new experiences.
So sorry to hear of the passing of my friend. We could write a book on the fun we have had in the past. Her obituary was so fitting for her. Sweet condolences to all her family.
Sorry to read of Phyliss passing away. When we both worked at Wheeling Stamping we were close. Over the years we lost touch with each other.
My sincere and humble condolences to the family and friends of Phyllis. Denny Albaugh
