Phyllis A. Porrell

     Phyllis A. Porrell, 83. Our beloved mother passed away on August 5, 2022.  She is survived by her three children, James Horgos, Joseph Horgos, and Kathy Pickup (Matthew.)  She was predeceased in 2020 by her husband of 42 years, Joseph J. Porrell.

     During the last few years of her life, Phyllis was lovingly cared for twenty-four hours a day by her team of selfless caregivers.  They included Kathy Kookendoffer, Kimberly (Jo) Banks, Robin Kuster, Heather Gaunce, Deborah True, and Naomi Rios.  We, Phyllis’ children sincerely appreciate all the compassion, love, and attention that was given to our mother on daily basis from this team of wonderful women.

     In lieu of flowers, donations to the Paris Animal Welfare Society, 6 Legion Drive, Paris, KY 40361, would be greatly appreciated.

    So sorry to hear Phyllis has passed. My heart and prayers go out to my good friend Joseph and other friends and relatives mourning the loss. I know Joe will miss spending the time and taking care of both her and Coach these many years. He knew she was his biggest fan and in return he would always be there to help. She will be remembered always.
