Born at Riverview Medical Center, Red Bank, to the late William and Ann (Olsen) Myatt, after graduating from RFH in 1952, Phyllis worked as a Group Manager for New Jersey Bell/AT&T and Verizon for roughly 30 years. She took 10 years off to be a full time mom and raise her son.

“She enjoyed traveling to Europe, going to Florida for the winter as a snowbird, playing cards, shuffleboard, golf and spending time with family.
She was always willing to help friends out and lend a helping hand anyway she could.”
