Phyllis deeply loved her husband of 59 years, and was devoted to her family. As a life-long member of Salem Mennonite Church, she faithfully served in her church, community and abroad. She was an avid reader, quilter, scrabble player, and puzzle solver. She was always up for an adventure. Phyllis will be fondly remembered and greatly missed.
There will be no calling hours but a private gravesite ceremony for immediate family members will be held, followed by a memorial service open to the community on April 6, 2023 at 11:00 a.m. at Salem Mennonite Church, Kidron, OH. Spidell Funeral Home in Mount Eaton is handling the arrangements.
We deeply appreciate the care Phyllis received at Aultman’s Hospitals and Compassionate Care Facility.
