Phyllis Rose Wilson

February 10, 1922November 17, 2020

Phyllis Rose Wilson age 98 of Stanwood, WA. passed away peacefully on November 17, 2020. She was born to Leroy and Eunice Wisner of Sunnyside, WA. February 10, 1922. She attended Yakima High School where she met the love of her life Clarence Wilson. He was the boy next door, and as she put it “A smart aleck, who used to whistle and snap his fingers when he walked past the house”. They were married on August 27, 1941. They had 3 daughters together Clarine, Charlene and Cheryl. They lived in Yakima, WA. and moved to Mt Lake Terrace, WA in 1952, and ultimately Lynnwood in 1959 where they stayed until 2004. Their family and home were the most important thing in their life. The door was always open to family, and one would frequently find her and Clarence in the yard working. You never needed an appointment, or to call in advance to stop by for a visit. Phyllis always had a homemade pie or cookies fresh out of the oven to great you with. Since her father was a baker by trade, it was always the best. Clarence passed away of pneumonia on April,1, 2010. Phyllis spent the remaining years surrounded by family and lived in Stanwood, WA. She loved her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and is with him now. She is preceded in death by both her parents, her husband Clarence, her sisters Lois Busey, Pearl McDonald, Sally Weaver, brothers Del and Jackie Wisner, and daughter Charlene Reinertson. She is survived by her daughters Clarine Brown of Camano Island, WA. and Cheryl Osburn of Shelby, NC., and her brother Max Wisner of Bainbridge Island, WA.

I have so many memories of my Grandma that I don’t even know where to start. I remember her laugh and her smile most of all. She loved all of her grandchildren dearly and she enjoyed spending as much time with all of us as much as possible. I remember she loved being in the kitchen or in her flower garden. Having grown up in the Depression she was a very frugal cook, nothing would go to waste, she would somehow make leftovers become an entirely new dish. She would always make a large meal no matter how many people she was cooking for. Breakfast, lunch or Dinner. Her oatmeal cookies always stand out in my memory and despite always making everything from scratch I would always look forward to lunch at her house because she would make me grilled cheese and Campbell’s tomato soup YES! From a can! One of the bottom drawers in her kitchen was where she stored all of the Play dough. I would go over to her house and she would set up a spot for me on the kitchen table where I would make anything you could imagine out of playdough, and just about everything I made she kept ! Yes not for days or weeks but for YEARS in fact many decades. I moved away from Washington with my family in 1984 and when I would come back and visit I would always see my playdough creations sitting in the window sill above the sink. She had beautiful flowerbeds that I used to love to look at and play in she would give me a little shovel and showed me how to dig up weeds I would do this for hours, I guess she figured she got some good work out of me while I was having some fun. I remember camping trips either up to their property or to Eastern Washington. Everything she did was centered around family we would go on these camping trips with Grandma and Grandpa my parents and brother, aunts, uncles and cousins when I take my family camping today I am always brought back to those days. I also remember her sense of humor, Grandma loved to laugh and when her, my aunts and my mother got together at the holida
