Her husband was career military so they did a lot of traveling. He was Vive President of ACME prior to his retirement. She has been a member of the First Congregational Church of Akron for 67 years and enjoyed playing golf and knitting in her free time.
She was also a member of the Fairlawn Country Club, and the Philosophical Education Organization. Phyllis is a founding member of Concordia at Sumner and has lived in this community for the past 13 years. She continues to participate in community activities and exercises here three times a week.
She says the secret to living to 100 years old is, “take good care of yourself, live life healthy, eat well, and exercise.”
