  1. Diane and I are so saddened that you have lost Phyllis and that the world has lost such a fine person. She is of pure spirit, had a heart of gold, and was just plain enjoyable to be around. I am lucky to have known her and look forward to being with her again in eternity. Stan, if we can be of help in any way, please do call. Gary & Diane

  3. Such a beautiful lady inside and out. Phyllis took such good care of my mom who suffered from dementia. She and Stan would take her to church when she asked, knowing that she would get up and want to leave early. A true loss for the Dorris family.

  4. My heartfelt sympathy to Stan, Larry, Jeanne and Pat. Phyllis was such a wonder and sweet person and I have always felt honored that she chose to name Jeanne after me. Though we were separated by many miles, we found a way to maintain 50 plus years of friendship.
    Rest In Peace dear friend.

  5. My condolences and love go to STAN in the family. What a loss. She was such a great friend.
