Phyllis Smith, 66, of Lyons, Ohio, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, November 8th 2016, after her battle with cancer. In her final days she was surrounded by family and friends.
Phyllis was born on January 5th 1950 in Wauseon, Ohio to Keith and Freida Shulters. Phyllis married her true love, Bill, on August 19, 1967 and they spent 49 special years together.
She brought joy to her work and will be remembered by co-workers from Parker-Hannifin and Gentner Trucking Company. Most recently she enjoyed giving back to the community through her work at the United Way. Phyllis was thrilled to retire in December of 2015. Her life here was not long enough, but the people who knew her cherished the moments they shared. Phyllis brought joy and happiness to everyone who knew her. Her smile and sense of humor will be greatly missed.
She was the center of her family and was always eager to plan holidays. Phyllis treasured holiday traditions like baking Christmas cookies and serving everyone eggnog. Phyllis also loved to cook for her family and to cheer on Ohio State. She made her grandkids, nieces, and nephews feel special with her sweet “to go” bags. Family came first in Phyllis’ life and her love will live with them forever.
