Phyllis Shahan

March 15, 1943 — September 19, 2021

She loved everyone she met.  Her love for cooking and baking was shared with the community of Evanston for several years through her restaurant “The Lil’ Red Hen.”  She was an artist by nature, she loved drawing and painting as well as writing poetry. But her proudest accomplishment was her family.
