After graduating from Toledo School of Nursing in 1996, she kickstarted a 16-year career at a number of hospitals, doctors’ offices, and nursing homes in the area. In 1967, Phyllis met Michael Gregory Smith at a friend’s wedding in Adrian, MI. They went on to have two children, Shana LeAnn (Smith) Braun and Michelle Marie (Smith) Armstrong.
