Phyllis was the secretary for The Bank of Perry, and then worked as a secretary and paraprofessional in the Houston Co Board of Education and Sacred Heart School.

Phyllis loved her Lord and was a member of St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Perry, GA where she served as a Eucharist Minister and as a volunteer in the children's and youth ministries. She was active at Hopewell United Methodist Church while in Glennville, GA.
Phyllis also enjoyed serving her community, and during different stages of her life, was the President of the Newcomers Club of Perry, GA, President of Perry Civitan Club, and also President of the Glennville Garden Club. She volunteered as a "Pink Lady" at the Perry Hospital. She also volunteered as a Girl Scout Leader in Perry.
