Phyllis had a great love for Pentwater, the beach held a special place in Phyllis’ heart. She could often be found walking one of her dogs or admiring the water; the beach was her solace. Phyllis enjoyed her flowers and gardening, when she was wasn’t at the beach, she was tending to her home gardens with her dogs at play in the yard. Phyllis carried a grateful heart, full of thanks for each day she was blessed with. She often told her children to “thank God for the gift of the day.”
