Phyllis went to grade school at the Old McKinley Elementary School, then attended Paris Gibson Junior High, and graduated from Great Falls High School in 1939. She married the love of her life, Edward H. Barrett, on April 27, 1941. They were married over 50 years, until Ed’s death in 1998.
Phyllis worked at the control counter at Littles Lanes for 43 years, retiring on her 80th birthday in 2001.
She loved spending her Friday and Saturday nights nestled up to the piano bar enjoying an Old Fashioned and singing favorite songs with friends, first at Gordons and then at Eddies Supper Club. Phyllis had many, many dear friends and spoke of them often. “I just want people to know that I love them. Please tell them I love them.”
Phyllis had her first pet, a golden retriever named Zoey, at the age of 96. Zoey stayed by her side until her last days.
