Phyllis M. Pelishek, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loved ones on February 14, 2024, at the age of 85. She was born on April 5th, 1938, to the late Joseph and Agnes Kaster.

Phyllis was a homemaker and housekeeper at Good Shepherd Nursing Home where she was recognized multiple times as employee of the month.

Upon retirement, Leonard and Phyllis moved to Suring, WI, and lived peacefully in a home near Anderson Lake, where many fond memories were made. Phyllis was a dedicated follower of God, always putting her family first. She enjoyed caring for and spending time with her family and friends, knitting, baking (chocolate chip cookies), and traveling.
