We will always be grateful for our Aunt Phyllis. My life is filled with loving cherished memories of family gatherings.
They were happy, fun filled, laughing days. The "Hageman Girls" knew how to have fun and make you feel special.
I am praying for all my relation as they grieve the unexpected loss of such an amazing woman we all loved dearly.
She is now at peace in Heaven with her sister, Mary Anne, and never forgotten.

So sorry to hear of your loss. We have so many fond memories of her and all of you as little kids when we lived across the street from your back yard, a lifetime ago.
May she rest in peace. Bill and Jerilyn Reinson
