LOVE, PHYLLIS FRANKENMUTH, MI Phyllis Joy Beach was born in Akron, Ohio, on June 24,1930. She left this earthly life January 15, 2021. She was born later in life to her mother and father, and had three older sisters. She said it was wonderful growing up because she was so spoiled. It was like she had four mothers instead of one. Phyllis married Neil W. Love on December 30, 1952. They eloped while Neil was on Christmas break during medical school. They were married for 68 years and had a wonderful life together. His family practice was connected to their home, where she worked in the office, even helping deliver a few babies during those years. She organized the Club 30 Dance Club in Frankenmuth back in the day, and their parties were legend. Phyllis was a great entertainer, social chairman, and cook. She would tell you that her greatest accomplishment and joy was raising her three children; Jeff Love (Nicole Bertram-Love) of Shady Side, MD; Jill Love (Rodney Marlow) of Pinckney, MI; and Janet Love (Brent Polak) of Superior Twp, MI. She raised her children with love and devotion in Frankenmuth, Michigan. She also leaves her beloved 8 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren. Being a homemaker was in her eyes, God's work, and she was proud to devote her life to it. She loved flower gardening and traveling. She had a passion for pro football, usually siding with the underdog, so everyone 'had a turn' she'd say. She enjoyed knitting, collecting seashells, and adding to her jewelry collection. She was proud to be a member of PEO, an organization she participated in for over 25 years. She loved strong and her love lives on. Arrangements are being handled by Cederberg Funeral Home in Frankenmuth. A memorial will be held this summer in the hopes all can gather together and celebrate her life. In lieu of flowers, friends wishing to honor Phyllis are invited to make a donation to Unity Church of Bay City, home to her spiritual mentor, Aelola James, or to a charity of your choice.

Janet and Family,
I have many fond memories of your mother when I visited Dr. Love. Even as a young child at the time, she made such a positive and warm impression on me. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you.

My grandma will always a constant thought, a not so distant memory, and a reminder of the strength Love women have. She watched me take my first steps, shared stories about my other grandma - Phyllis Jean, kept a mental diary of my quotes, and always had an anecdote. She gave me a place to talk about my dreams and my struggles while she sat and listened from her big blue arm chair. I feel lucky she got to see me as a mom and give me sound advice on being married to a Scorpio. And, whether she knew it or not I was always keeping a mental diary of her quotes too.
Someday we will be together again, sharing stories, smiling, and pampering ourselves. Until then I will always look for your warm rays of light and listen for your messages from the singing birds.

My sincere condolences to the family. I have many happy and funny memories of Phyllis from my childhood. We lived right next door to the Loves and Neil was our doctor. I don't have as many happy memories of Doc as he was usually giving me a shot when I saw him. I babysat for Jill, Jeff and Janet often and Phyllis would invite me to eat dinner with them before she and Doc left for the night. I remember her being so stylish and attractive. She was always very nice and made some very interesting and delicious meals. The family will be in my prayers during this sad time.

I'll miss so much about PJL. Her stories. Her hugs. Her endless love, compassion, and warmth. She was radiant. A true diamond. She made the best floats when I was little and would make me feel like she was always my safe place. I looked for guidance from her. She was my North Star. Our matriarch. She had a love for jewelry, sunshine, plants, and the color blue. Everything that is good in this world will forever remind me of her. I will hold her memory in my heart forever.

I’m so deeply saddened to hear of Phyllis’ passing. We used to run into each other often it seemed since I moved back to Frankenmuth almost 20 years ago. I have many memories of her as a child (weekly allergy shots) at Dr Love’s. So glad we were able to make a few in these later years. She loved my pickled red beets & I loved sharing them with her. I would tell her to keep inspiring us all! What a beautiful, classy & kind woman. My most sincere sympathies to Dr Love & her entire family. Praying God’s promise & peace will comfort you.
