Remembering Phyllis Diller

n3When Phyllis Diller lived in Webster Groves from 1962 to 1965, her daughter made friends with a local girl who saw Diller more as a mom than a famous comedian. Years later, the girl, Patricia Corrigan, became a reporter. She spoke of Diller in an article in the October 25, 1987 Post-Dispatch. I found the article while I was researching my profile on Phyllis Diller for The Colorful Characters of St. Louis. Corrigan is now an author who lives in San Francisco. I tracked Corrigan down and spoke to her by  phone. Here is the article she wrote for the Post-Dispatch.
