Phyllis Marie Schulz was born on Dec. 28, 1945, in Elgin, Ill., the only child of Charles H. and Carolyn D. (nee Drafall) Schulz. She was raised and received her education in Huntley, Ill., graduating from Huntley High School in 1964. After high school, Phyllis went to work for Jewel Foods in Palatine, Ill. She was united in marriage to Donald E. Finck on April 24, 1965, in Huntley, Ill. They moved to Neillsville, where they resided until moving to Owen, and finally settled in Greenwood in 1990. Phyllis worked at Rollohome in Marshfield, and later at Mr. B’s Restaurant in Abbotsford, but most of her time was dedicated to being a stay-at-home mother and raising their five children. She had many interests, but especially loved hunting, fishing, parades, camping, the Warrens Cranberry Festival, tractor pulls, and collecting tractors with her husband. Phyllis was also a member of the Edgar Gas & Steam Engine Club.

She will be dearly missed by her husband, Don, of Greenwood; three sons: Bob (Laurie Carteron) of Neillsville, Eugene (Shelly) of Athens, and Floyd (Tracey) of Edgar; two daughters: Dawn (Jerry) Kelley of Helvetia, W.V., and Jan (Jeremy Kurzinski) Finck of Stevens Point; two step-sons: Donnie (Holly) of Black River Falls, and Bill (Deb) of Black River Falls; 18 grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; and nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
