Dear family and friends, be sure that you all are in our prayers. Phyllis will always be remembered as one of the most faithful, kindest and compassionate women who ever walked through the doors of First Church of God. Her optimism was refreshing and adorable along with her close walk with God. We look forward to seeing her again soon. As the bible says in 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 NKJV –

“3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.” May the Lord comfort you in the days to come.

In Christ’s Love,

Pastor Chuck and the congregation at First Church Of God

Tom Blake: I was sorry to hear of your mothers passing. I was away on a fishing trip that week and only found out this weekend. I will keep her and you in my prayers. Take care friend, Dale Naegele.

My deepest sympathies to all who were touched by the Life of Phyllis. I had just learned of her passing this past Sat. evening, while among some 1963 classmates from CCHS. The last time I saw Phyllis was at Curves on National Rd in Whg. It had been years, but she was still that gentle Phyllis from high school. May those GOOD MEMORIES bring you peace. Lois classmate and Dale’s wife
