    We were heartbroken to hear that our Cousin Phyllis had passed. We loved her dearly. She will be remembered fondly for the smiles and fun we always had whenever she and Leo visited. Her cooking was out of this world. I can still hear my Dad saying, “Please make something like Mama used to make!!!” We share your loss. She was a wonderful lady.

Send your condolences.
