Phyllis worked over 20 years in the Mohave County Treasurers Office in the Tax Lien Department before retiring. She was greatly respected and well thought of by all who came in contact with her, whether it was co-workers, title companies, other county departments, the public or lien holders.

Family was important to Phyllis and she enjoyed having them around, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was affectionately known as Aunt Foo to many.

She was always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone. She especially enjoyed helping her son George raise funds to help complete their building of Desert Shores Community Baptist Church. She gave of herself to help others who were struggling and needed a hand.

The family is thankful for those who cared for her during her final days. Thank you Chico, Tasha, Gearlan and hospice.
