In 1958, she married John Zamora and together raised their three children. Phyllis spent most of her working days taking care of family, and a few years at Casa Zamora Restaurant in Albert Lea.

She enjoyed quilting and sewing throughout her entire life and always took care of her beautiful gardens. Phyllis and John travelled the nation together for Trap Shooting events and won numerous tournaments. Family was always important to Phyllis and she loved hosting Sunday Breakfast, holidays meals and any excuse to be with family. Even supporting her grandchildren in the Roller Derby! Her feisty, compassionate, and loving spirit will be greatly missed.
