Phyllis married Walter L. Shaw in 1950 and together they raised their family for 67 years until his passing in 2017. Phyllis loved to cook and attend family gatherings. She loved playing cards, dice, or anything that allowed her to socialize with her family and friends. Phyllis enjoyed travelling with her friends, especially to Virginia, Pennsylvania and Florida. She and Judy could often be found at yard sales on Saturdays, followed by eating out. Most of all, Phyllis will be remembered as a generous woman with a huge heart and a beautiful soul. The smile that she always had for everyone will be greatly missed.
