Born in the Blue Diamond coal camp, she contracted Rheumatic fever as a toddler. Apparently the fever affected her heart causing a defect in a valve. At the age of 30, shortly after going to work for her father's company, she had her first heart valve replacement. Over the course of the ensuing 20+ years she worked her way through the management ranks and successfully managed the finances during the restructuring of her father's company. During this time she had two more heart valve replacements, the third time receiving an artificial valve. Within about a year and a half that valve failed and we lost Phyllis at too early of an age.

God looked around His garden
and found an empty place.
He then looked down upon the earth
and saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you
and lifted you to rest.
God's garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best.
He saw the road was getting rough
and the hills were hard to climb,
So He closed your weary eyelids
and whispered "Peace be thine".
It broke our hearts to lose you
but you didn't go alone,
For part of us went with you
the day God called you home.
