Phyllis was a nurse at Dekalb General, now Dekalb Medical Center, for 15 years. Upon her retirement she became the wedding planner at Holy Cross, served on the social committee and the parish council. In addition to her passion for community service, Phyllis had a true love of the arts. She enjoyed gardening, traveling, music, and the theater. She was a veracious reader and avid movie goer. Her joy of life and incredible humor are her legacy.
