Phyllis was my boss for several years at Crown. Everyone liked to joke that she was my mama. Funny thing, she was. She helped me in so many ways that I now appreciate more than ever...at work and outside of work. I will forever be thankful for the times we shared and the help she unconditionally gave me.

Phyllis is a dear friend and will be missed by many. She always was there when I needed her. She always put others first. I thank God she was my friend and I know I will see her again in heaven.
