On April 18, 1944, she was united in marriage to Ernest Tanghe. The couple farmed and raised their family in rural Marshall. Phyllis was a very kind, gentle person, and happy homemaker.

She was a 4-H leader and, in her later years, volunteered as a driver for Lyon County Human Services. She tended to the Holy Redeemer Church garden. She enjoyed the outdoors including camping and fishing. Her Catholic faith was also very important to her. She and Ernest prayed a daily rosary together. Phyllis was an active member of Holy Redeemer Catholic Church and the Catholic Daughters of America.
