On a blind date in early 1951 she met the love of her life, Adam Zoucha. They married on September 6, 1952. Phyllis provided a loving, nurturing, and intellectually stimulating home to their five children. She was a huge support to Adam in his medical career.
Phyllis was a fun, creative, and imaginative woman and an accomplished artist. Adam and Phyllis were big supporters of Creighton University. Her Catholic faith was a constant in her life and a source of joy. Phyllis will be missed by many.
