They lived together in Cleveland, OH before relocating to the Dallas area in 1960.

Phyllis was an active member of St. Patrick’s Church, worked tirelessly for The St. Vincent’s De Paul Society and endeared herself to those she led in prayer group by her powerful witness of faith in Christ.

Dear Everybody, We are sorry to hear of your mother’s death. She was quite the person. I know you will miss her very much. I’m having a Mass said for her at my church, Shrine of Our Lady of the Americas Albany NY. Our Pastor told me that Larry taught him in the seminary. The Pastor’s name is Fr. Frank O’Connor. My love to you all, Aunt Claire
