Phyllis married Jerry Talbott on Dec. 25, 1951, they were married for 21 years. She later married Robert Bezely on Aug. 1, 1975, and enjoyed almost 41 years of a loving marriage together until Bob passed away in April of 2016.

Phyllis's children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the center of her world and she loved them all more than words could express. She enjoyed attending her grandchildren and great-grandchildren's school and sports activities and spending time with all her family whenever possible. Phyllis was a wonderful caring and giving person with a heart as big as the world. She loved animals and watching and feeding the birds with humming birds being her favorite. She was a country girl at heart who loved collecting windmills and pictures of old barns. We, Phyllis's family, were blessed to have her in our lives and her unconditional love made all our lives so much richer. We all love her so much and will have a huge hole in our lives.
