    Phyllis is like family to me. I’ve known her since birth. Our fathers served together in the Air Force in Japan.

I will always love and miss her. What a privilege it was to know her!!!

    Prayers for the Greenlee family. I worked with Jim at Ramada and met Phyllis through him. She was always SO sweet and kind and we conversed on Facebook quite often. She will be missed – gone too soon, but heaven has a wonderful angel now.

  • Phyllis I was not aware of your passing, we crossed paths at least a couple times, Itazuke and Keesler Air Bases but became friends through fb. It was always such a pleasure to “chat” with you, that smile with your fb profile was enough to make my day. Looking forward to renewing our friendship somewhere down the road.
