Obituary for Phyllis Darlene Ayers

Phyllis Ayers was called to the Lord on her 85th birthday, December 15, 2018. She peacefully passed away at Guthrie Center, Iowa’s New Homestead Retirement community.

Phyllis Darlene Fogg was born on December 15, 1933 in Cheyenne, WY to Ida and Ira Fogg as the youngest of six children. She was the last survivor of her siblings which included brothers Harold, Dean and Kenneth and sisters Evelyn and Virginia. She graduated from Cheyenne North High School and attended the Wyoming Business School graduating in 1956 and worked for the state of Wyoming.

Phyllis married Kenneth James Ayers on May 4, 1956 in Casper, Wyoming. Jim and Phyllis lived in Casper, Rock Springs and Cheyenne, WY before moving to Schaller, Iowa in 1968 where they raised their three boys, Allen, Kelvin, and Doug. Phyllis was a member of the Schaller Presbyterian Church for 50 years, serving in many different ministries and groups.

She worked for the Schaller Herald and Thompson’s Hardware in Schaller where she engaged in her favorite activity of visiting with old friends while always looking forward to meeting new ones. She never met a stranger and could always find someone with an Iowa or Wyoming connection.  The Lord blessed Phyllis with the gift of encouragement and she was always looking to point out the best in everyone.  

Phyllis served on the election board for many years. She was an avid reader and was a member of the Schaller Library Board as she felt the library was important to make books available to every person.
Phyllis was preceded in death by her grandson, Austin.  She is survived by her husband Jim, her three sons, Allen (Codi) Casey, Iowa, Kelvin (Deb) Rathdrum, ID and Doug (Donna) Denton, TX as well as ten grandchildren and three great grandchildren.

Memorial donations may be made to the Schaller Library, 103 S. Main Street, Schaller, Iowa 51053.   Services will be held at the Presbyterian Church, Schaller, Iowa on Tuesday, December 18, at 2 PM.
