    The Keen family from Danville, IN is saddened to hear about Phyllis’ passing. We have many great memories with Phyllis being neighbors (in 3 different houses), and spending good times and holidays together. Phyllis was a very warm person, and made us all feel like we were part of her family.

    I am late in hearing this news about the loss of our neighbor here in Northridge Hills. Somehow I missed this news earlier. Phyllis was a neighbor and friend with whom I enjoyed visiting. Often I sat with her in her garage to catch up on the news down at her end …the south end…of our condos while I’m in the north. I admired her spunk, her strong spirit and enjoyed her stories. She moved to Bickford some years ago and has been missed here. Know she has moved on to the world that awaits us all. May she rest in peace.
