Every year the Red Cross responds to house fires to assist the residents with clothing, housing and food. Locally when the call goes out they Get Phyllis Davis on the phone.
She is the Disaster Assessment Team leader locally and has been to “too many to count” house fires. She has been with the Red Cross since 2001. She has been also deployed to natural disasters in Washington D.C., Florida, Louisiana, South Carolina and Ohio. She has worked as a case worker, call center member and shelter supervisor. Currently she oversees 36 members of the DAT team here in Hancock and Seneca County.
She has lived in Findlay since her marriage in !975. Her husband Bill also works with the Red Cross. Between them they share 6 children, 4 boys and 2 girls. They also have been blessed with 13 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren. She also has two cats named Pepper and Buddy who keep them company.
When she is not responding to calls she likes retirement and rest. She retired from GSW Manufacturing where she was a inspector.
Her motto is the Golden rule, “Do unto others and when you live by that everything goes great.
Her role models are Christ and her mother. “My mother was very quiet, respected, always there for us even though she worked outside the home and helped run a farm.”
