Phyllis was baptized and confirmed in the Christian Faith at St. Peter Lutheran Church, Molke Twp, MN. In December of 1960, she married Harvey Buettner and then settled in Tacoma, WA where they raised 3 children.
A loving friend, wife, sister, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Phyllis dedicated many hours of her life to helping others. Her role as a nurse undoubtedly brought care and comfort to many. Throughout her life, her faith in Jesus Christ as her Savior was evident to all. She enjoyed gardening, loved spending time with her grandchildren, and playing Sudoku.
She is survived by her three children: Jon (Jana) Buettner of Bellingham, WA, Dan (Maggie) Buettner of Gibbon, MN, Sharon (Randy) Freeman of Bellingham, WA; sister, Shirley (Herman) Laue of St. Michael, MN; 9 grandchildren; and 4 great-grandchildren
Her home-going was a joyous occasion as she joined many of her friends and relatives, and, most importantly, her husband Harvey with whom she will spend eternity in the presence of their Savior.
Services will be held Wed. March 15th at 1pm at Redeemer Lutheran Church (858 W Smith Rd) with visitation 1 hr prior. Graveside 2pm at Greenacres Memorial Park.
