Phyllis Jean Branson, b. 19 August 1944, Rico, Colorado. Phyllis was born 3 months premature, at home, weighing a mere 2 pounds. Allie Baer, the mining company nurse lived across the street from us; would come 4 times a day & rub Phyllis in Olive Oil, wrap her in a cloth diaper & place her in a shoe box. Her incubator was the open oven door of the coal stove that mother, Mavis (Gaddis) Branson cooked on. The Lord loaned this precious daughter/sister to us for almost 20 years. Phyllis died 20 March 1963, Durango, Colorado.
