She was affectionately known as Phyllis, Phid, Mom, Mamaw, worm, and doopy. Aside from quilting, she enjoyed crossword puzzles, reading her Bible, listening to gospel and classic country music, and could whistle any tune beautifully. She also enjoyed collecting Greentown glass, anything chickens, and miniature tea sets.  The big kid in her loved cheeseburger Happy Meals mostly to collect the toys!
