Aunt Phyllis was a delightful, sweet, and caring sister-in-law
to our dear mom and dad, Marilee Davis and Ray Shubert.
They all visited with one another often and Phyllis always sent the most beautiful greeting cards to them. After mom and dad's deaths we found a great number of those cards that Marilee had carefully saved. I now have them in a beautiful scrapbook. I know her family misses her. We do.

Thank you for the wonderful tribute to our mother. She was a beautiful lady inside and out. Sharing love and compassion with her family and friends was one her greatest attributes. I strive to be as caring and nurturing to my family as mother was to us. We love her and miss her.
