Phyllis E. Billard

May 11, 1927 — December 27, 2020

Phyllis E. Billard (Larish)
Rochester, NY:
May 11, 1927-December 27, 2020.
My Best Friend passed away at the age of 93. She was born in Blooming Grove, Pennsylvania and spent the majority of her adult life in Rochester, New York and Key Colony Beach, Florida.
She was my Best Friend for 59 years.
I've never loved anyone as much as I loved her and I've never been loved as much as she loved me.
She's been my teacher, my mentor, my chef, my baker, my interior decorator, my business partner, my painter, my wallpaper hanger, my landscaper, my golf coach, my bowling coach, and my fishermom (who could gaff a fish from the 3 Mile Bridge).
She taught me how to be a lady, and at the same time, how to compete with the boys.
My Mom never let me down. She was always there for me with a big smile, a fabulous outfit, and a cup of homemade hot chocolate. She was the epitome of elegance and grace.
She was an avid golfer and won her Club Championship for over a decade. She had the remarkable accomplishment in her lifetime of 11 hole in ones.
She was smart, extremely generous, incredibly thoughtful, and always made a setting at our table for a stranger or person in need. She loved to dance, and loved to be with her sisters and brothers. They would laugh and giggle so much that they would wet their pants. She was the happiest being together with them.
My heart aches. I will miss her terribly. She was truly, "The Wind beneath my Wings".
-Your loving daughter, PattiService
