She was a 1964 honors graduate of Hughesville High School and a graduate of Williamsport Area Community College receiving her LPN degree. She worked at Muncy Valley Hospital in the Labor & Delivery Unit, assisting in delivering many of her nieces and nephews, until its closure. She continued working as a clinic nurse at Geisinger Medical Group Lycoming until 2009. She was an active member of Moreland Baptist Church serving as a children’s Sunday School teacher, deaconess, and VBS teacher. She served as an East Lycoming School board member. She was very involved in her children's and grandchildren's education, sporting events, and extra-curricular activities. She established her grandmother name as “Oma” when she visited her brother and his family in Germany the year her first grandchild was born. She was known as Oma to many others, as well. Oma loved to babysit her grandchildren. She was very fond of her childhood horse, Honey Bee, which her own children enjoyed too. She loved her husband’s hunting dogs. One of her most prized accomplishments was being a nurse and helping others. She was known for her commitment to her church, and people always looked forward to her peanut brittle. Phyllis took great pride in her children and raised them to be caring, Christ-centered individuals exemplifying their mother. “May the work I’ve done, speak for me.” Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, June 11 at Moreland Baptist Church, 118 Moreland Baptist Road, Muncy with Rev.
