Originally from Laihaina, Maui, Phyllis moved to Milwaukee in November 1976 and always loved the fall and winter here in Wisconsin. Reading and movies were just a few of her interests. Phyllis had a curiosity for life, which was evident in her travels. She also enjoyed talking with and learning from others who traveled. She had an appreciation for life and loved meeting new people along with spending time with those that were dear to her heart. She will be greatly missed.
