Phyllis was a member of several United Methodist Churches in the East Ohio Conference. She loved cooking, especially pies. She loved any and all strawberry milkshakes. She enjoyed quilting, belonging to many quilting groups. However, her heart and joy were singing soprano in any way that she could. She loved to sing in a multitude of church choirs and really enjoyed when she could sing with any live performance group. Phyllis and family joined with Oden in each of his United Methodist pastorates as they served many charges in the East Ohio Methodist Church Conference. She was always a member of the church choir and the Annual Conference choir and her ministry of music was her message. She also traveled thought out England in 1989 singing at several churches.

She loved to play the piano. She taught all of her children how to play. When she moved into the Elms Retirement Village, she would play the piano and sing for hours upon hours.
