She enjoyed many artistic pursuits (drawing / painting, sewing, woodworking), jogging / walking, working crossword and Sudoku puzzles. She was a member of Saint Edward's and Holy Trinity churches where she served as a Eucharist minister, taught CCD, and was part of the parish council. After retirement, Phyllis was able to devote more time to pursue her interests and spend time with her family. She loved traveling with her husband and playing bingo at the New Fairfield Senior Center. This year Phyllis and John celebrated their 54 their wedding anniversary.
