Phyllis was born to the late George and Bernice McNulty on January 8, 1936. The oldest of 12 children, Phyllis was born and raised in Fergus Falls, Minnesota, and later moved with her family to Troy.

Phyllis was adored and loved by all who knew her. She was affectionately called “Nana” by her grandchildren and “Nanny with the Fanny” by her devoted husband, David. She was always active and enjoyed gardening, sewing, crocheting, cooking and baking. She was the go-to person asked to bake incredible wedding cakes for friends and family.

Phyllis was an amazing, kind and hardworking wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend who will be dearly missed by all.

Phyllis will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 19 years, David, daughter Teresa Trego and son Gary Johnson, stepdaughters Julie Volknand and Kim (Michael) Strawbridge, grandchildren Cara Trego, Jerald (Brandy) Trego, Jennifer (Michael) Sovitsky and Brian Trego, sisters Ellen Adkins, Jean Jellesed, Mary (Walt) Stephenson, Beverly (Chris) Freese, Susan (Rick) Byrd, Carol Eggers and Colleen McNulty and brothers Jim (Bobbie) McNulty and Roger McNulty.
