She was part owner and operator of Wilton Cleaning, had worked at the Star Drugstore, Wilton, for 20 years. She was a member of Postville Eastern Star, had served on the Wilton Park board for 6 years, was a member of Wilton Presbyterian Church, a Campfire Girls volunteer, the first president and one of the founders of the Wilton Band Boosters.

**In this obituary Phyllis' husband is nicknamed "Mack". In his obituary, which is posted here also, I typed his nickname as "Mick". The newspaper is disintegrated there and I assumed it was "Mick" but his wife's obituary says "Mack" and that makes more sense when you study his middle name of McConnell. His whole name is Charles McConnell "Mack" Peterson. I am sorry about this mistake but hope this clears it up.
