Phyllis was born in Seneca Falls, NY on June 26, 1941, daughter of the late Dexter and Clara Steele. She was a lifelong resident of the Seneca Falls/Waterloo area, where she lived and worked. For many years, Phyllis worked for Don Alleson Athletic in Geneva. She had many hobbies and activities she enjoyed, including bingo at the Magee Fire Department, but her number one passion in life was her family. She especially enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren.
