She was one the original board members for the Vineland Soccer Association where she served as the first secretary. For many years she chaperoned for the Miss Vineland Pageant. Phyllis also typed court transcripts for Judge George Huey, amazing her neighborhood friends who would watch in disbelief as she could type at the same speed as a person could dictate a letter.
