Phyllis was born the daughter of Howard and Mildred Pentecost on February 21, 1954 in Algona, Iowa. She graduated from Algona High School. For over 40 years, the Lake of the Ozarks has been her home. She worked as a realtor for almost 20 years and was respected and loved by many of her clients and colleagues. Phyllis’s hobbies included spending time with family, enjoying life at the lake, fishing, and doing various arts and crafts. She had a passion for all kinds of art. She loved to paint, make jewelry, decorative signs, and soap, and most of all loved when her granddaughter joined her to craft. Family was very important to Phyllis.
