Throughout the years, Phyllis worked at various Marshfield businesses, including Mawell's, Modern Sleep and Distributors Warehouse. She was also a proud mother of her four children and involved in each of their lives. She found great joy in her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She is survived by her children, Sandy (Joe) Burggraf of Wisconsin Rapids, Karen (Marc) Olson of Auburndale, Russell Schalow Jr. of Spencer and Brian (Donna) Schalow of Stratford.

She was predeceased by her parents, her husband and a brother, Robert Wolff. Life is not measured by the breaths you take but by the moments that take your breath away. "Thanks Mom for all the moments!"

The family will designate a memorial in her name at a later date.
