Phyllis Schaefer, age 82, went home to be with her Lord on April 16, 2014 at the hospital in Marinette, Wisconsin.
She was born on April 19, 1931 daughter of the late William and Florice (Barber) Bauer.
She attended grade school and high school in Plymouth, later finding herself working for Gilson Brothers and Stokley Van Kamp, along with being a home maker.
On January 21, 1949 she married the love her life Mark Martin Schaefer Sr. in Plymouth. He preceded her in death just five short days ago on April 11, 2014.
She was a former member of Zion Lutheran Church in Glenbeulah, and a member of the VFW Auxiliary in Amberg. In her free time she enjoyed flowers and gardening, but one of her main loves was music studying in California when she was younger, along with singing in the church choir. Both Mark and Phyllis loved to entertain, whenever you where coming through the area they would have you over, for a home cooked meal. However, nothing was more important than those Sunday and Holiday dinners with family.
She is survived by her four children Florice Wondra of Sheboygan, Mark (Victoria) Schaefer Jr. of Wilmot, Constance Schaefer of Plymouth, Linda (Frederick) Marquardt of Buckeye, AZ, seven grandchildren Todd Sterk, Troy Sterk, Gregory (Dawn) Schaefer, Edwin (Krissy) Schaefer, Tina Schaefer, Anthony Marquardt, and Kyle (Brittney) Marquardt, along with seven great grandchildren.
Funeral services will be held in conjunction with her beloved husband Mark at 6:30 PM on Thursday, April 24, 2014 at the Schneider Funeral Home in Plymouth with the Rev. Don Johnson, pastor of Zion Lutheran Church in Glenbeulah officiating. Friends may call at the funeral home on Thursday evening from 4 PM until the time of service.
