Phyllis Pearl Miller Bloch Obituary

Phyllis Pearl Miller Bloch, 92, of Valley View, passed away peacefully Tuesday, Oct. 20, 2020, surrounded by her loving family at her home.

Phyllis was born Dec. 29, 1927, in Pitman, a daughter of the late Lee A. and Lydia Morgan Miller.

She graduated from the former Hegins Township High School in 1945. Phyllis was a secretary for her late husband's business, Kenneth A. Bloch Hauling and Excavating.

She was a very active member of St. Andrew's United Methodist Church, Valley View, where she held many offices, including vacation bible school teacher, president of the women's group and board member. She was always willing to lend a hand wherever needed. She established a memorial fund that helps send 15 to 20 youths to summer church camp as well as establishing a scholarship, in her husband's memory, awarded to an aspiring Tri-Valley High School senior pursuing further education in the music field. She was also a member of Daughter's of the American Revolution and Daughters of America, Pitman Chapter.

Phyllis was very generous with her time and resources and was always doing something for others, driving for Meals on Wheels, Volunteer Home Care, Sight Loss Support, and spending nights with elderly neighbors, delivering care packages to nursing homes and helping with bloodmobiles are just a few to name. In addition to her faith and philanthropy, family was also a matter of great importance. Sunday dinners, annual beach vacations, attending grandchildren's activities and birthday celebrations were always her priority.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Kenneth A. Bloch, in 1989; a daughter, Holly Bloch, in 1969; two sisters, Marie Hepler and Rena Hoffman.

Surviving are a son, Daniel Lee Bloch, of Valley View; two daughters, Rachel Bloch Koppenhaver (David), of Valley View, and Wendy Bloch Campbell, of Orwigsburg; three granddaughters, Andrea Campbell Scarola (Dan), of Kempton, Kara Koppenhaver Tucker (Ross), of Harrisburg, and Kristen Koppenhaver Snyder (Brock), of Millersburg; a grandson, Alex Kenneth Campbell (Casey), of Garrison, N.Y.; seven great-grandchildren, Tyler, Dillon and Jake Scarola, Tess and Helen Tucker and Sebastian and Sawyer Snyder.

Phyllis will be laid to rest at the convenience of the family in St. Andrew's United Methodist Cemetery, Valley View, next to her beloved husband, Kenneth, and daughter, Holly. A memorial service to honor her life will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 14, at St. Andrew's United Methodist Church, Valley View. Masks will be required for the service and social distancing protocol will be followed. In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory should be made to St. Andrew's UM Church, P.O.
