Phyllis’ loves included her church, The United Methodist Church of Matamoras, which she joined as a seven year old and faithfully served in any way she was called. It was Phyllis’ quiet faith that sustained her throughout her life.  Spending time with family and friends always brought much joy to Phyllis. Keeping her home on Pearl Street in Port Jervis for more than sixty years was also a source of pride, joy, and comfort.  Phyllis always considered Pearl Street her “home”.

A 1946 graduate of Matamoras High School, Phyllis was actively involved in the MHS Alumni Assoc. as long as she was able. Phyllis retired from Bon Secours Hospital as an out patient clerk in 1996, after 25 years of service. Prior to that she was employed at JC Penney and Paul Mark Pharmacy.

Brush.

The family wishes to thank Mom’s neighbors and friends who kept a watchful eye on her and enabled her to stay safely in her home as long as she did. We would also like to thank Brookdale Memory Care Center in Sandy Springs, GA and The Fountainview Center for Alzheimer’s Disease in Atlanta for their loving care of our mother.
