Phyllis was born in Osborne, Kansas, to her parents, Roy Stehley and Florence (Koch) Stehley. She and her older sister, Pat (Stehley) Wanek, grew up in many locations throughout Kansas as they moved numerous times. She graduated high school in 1944 as valedictorian of her Wilson, Kansas, class.

She was known throughout the community as a dedicated mother and homemaker with a caring, kind-hearted and generous spirit. Phyllis enjoyed horseback riding, socializing with friends and family, playing bridge, knitting, and writing poetry, and she had a huge affection for animals. She maintained a wonderful, supportive, and kind sense of humor and a quick wit.

Bill and Phyllis were owners of Allen’s Clothing Store, which was opened by George and Bill Allen in 1949 and sold to Tod and Robin Allen in 1984.
