Phyllis was born on July 16, 1925 in Denver, CO to J. Homer and Ruth Elizabeth Victoria (Jewett) Hauptman.

Phyllis and Jack were big supporters of music at USD, attending many faculty and student recitals and hosting receptions at their home. Phyllis worked at the USD Registrar's Office from 1972-1982.

Phyllis was often noted for her strong opinions, forward thinking, and her concern for others. She loved reading, travel, entertaining, political discussions, and crossword puzzles.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Jack; two sons, Bruce and Kris; a sister, Lois Van Nattan and a brother, J. Hugh Hauptman.

She is survived by two sons, David (Christine Mason) of Mead, CO, and Paul (Melissa Hoffman-Noble) of Tulsa, OK; two daughters, Jane (Bryan) Paxson of Sisters, OR and Ruth (Jerry) Lemire of Minneapolis, MN; four grandchildren, Carol Mollet, Sarah (Jay) Williams, Eric Noble, and Laura Noble; one great granddaughter, Ruby Jane Williams; and many nieces and nephews.
