When asked what are some of the things you want people to remember about you, she said first of all, how nice and sweet she was to her children and that she was a devoted mother, grandmother, great grandmother and great great grandmother. Anyone who knew Phyllis, knew she was famous for her smile, her love for everyone and her courage. She was always glad to see you and gave big bear hugs whether you wanted them or not.

Phyllis was born May 8, 1935 in Hochatown, OK to Felix and Lorene Dale. Phyllis graduated from Broken Bow High School in May of 1953. On December 11, 1954, Phyllis married a very handsome sailor and the love of her life, Winford Vice. Phyllis worked in printing for a while but she loved working as a CNA and retired from Home Health care in 1999. She worked with many who were in hospice and was there for many of them when they took their last breath.

Phyllis attended and was a member of Eastern Heights Christian Church of Ponca City, Oklahoma. She had a very blessed life and gives all the glory to God. Along with the many blessings, she had a fun life. She has visited all 50 states plus many countries. She loved to play music and played the guitar and sang with a bluegrass group as well as a country and western group. There were many times after church the group would get together and sing and play for hours.

Sewing and quilting was another hobby that she truly enjoyed and anyone who has seen her quilts will agree she made some of the most beautiful quilts in the world.
