We want to thank Spectrum Health Hospice, Amanda her kind and compassionate hospice nurse that was there during her final days of life. Bishop Hills Assisted Living - the care my mother received when we left eased my mind to know she was in good hands.
She enjoyed spending time with family and friends. She enjoyed the holidays and loved to bake cookies, pies and her famous fried chicken. She loved to sew, read and spending time with all of her beloved dogs. I know that Kody, Brody and all the other dogs were waiting for my mom.
She will be dearly missed and will be forever in our hearts.
Family will greet friends at a visitation to remember Phyllis, Thursday, November 18, 2021 from 2-4 and 6-8 pm at Memorial Alternatives, 2432 Fuller Ave NE, Grand Rapids, MI
