She was a member of the United Methodist Church in Russell.  She was active in the Brownie Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts as well as many activities at the Chandlers Valley EUB church where she taught Sunday School and youth fellowship and the Warren County Youth for Christ.  She and her husband enjoyed living in North Carolina for 10 years before returning to Warren County.  She worked various jobs while in high school.  Phyllis worked at Sands Store in Chandlers Valley and later at the elementary school in Sugar Grove, Eisenhower High School and was a part time mail carrier.

Dear Loomis family,
I am sorry to hear of the loss of Phyllis. She was a wonderful lady. It was a joy to know her. I especially remember when my husband Gil and I stopped down to visit her and Ken while they stilled lived in North Carolina. May God fill your hearts with peace knowing that she knew all was well with her soul and is now with her Heavenly Father. God bless each of you in very special ways.
