So sorry to hear of Phyllis’s passing. Phyllis was the best friend of my Sister-in-law, Jeanne(Aubuchon) Timmons, of Spanish Fork, UT,
who I will notify of Phyllis’s passing. Also a friend of my Sister, Carol (Timmons)Moser of Augusta, KS. They all went to High Scool together at Andover High School in the late 1940’s.
