Phyllis Anne
Clark Kincade
passed away
on May 27
after fighting Alzheimer's
This extraordinary
woman was born in
Topeka Kansas on Dec. 11,
1927. With a spirit of innovation,
humor and creativity,
her family worked
their way to Oakland, CA
in the 1930's. There, she
later met and married
Richard Wood Kincade
on Sept. 13, 1947. A Navy
wife, she raised four children,
instilling in them
her resiliency, strength,
intellect and a sense of
adventure and curiosity.
Phyllis magically created
beautiful, loving homes
wherever the Navy sent
the family. This travel fed
her intellect and desire to
explore cultures throughout
the world.
Phyllis was a lay paleontologist,
cook, athlete and cake
decorator; she was a
naturalist, artist, a TV
game show champion and
lover of the printed word
– unbeatable at Scrabble.
Phyllis loved books! She
served for ten years as
secretary of the Rampart
Library District and was
instrumental in building
the new Woodland
Park library. She
initiated bringing
the world's
largest book,
Bhutan: The
Last Himalayan
Kingdom to the
Woodland Park
library where it is permanently
on display and
dedicated to her.
Phyllis often said,
"What a beautiful world
this is!" With her devoted
husband, Dick, she saw
plenty of it, traveling
to all 50 states and 35
countries, skiing, hiking,
camping, exploring diverse
places and cultures.
She passed her thirst for
knowledge and adventure
to all of her family.
She is survived by her
beloved husband, Dick,
and children, Ellie, Rick,
Ginny and Susie; nine
grandchildren and four
