With family by her side, Phyllis Anderson passed away on June 20, 2020 in Tumwater, WA. Phyllis was born on February 22, 1932 in Los Angeles, CA, to parents Irene (Payne) and Roy Wolstenholme. She was raised in CA until she was 15 years old. She moved to WA when her family relocated to the Olympia area. She graduated from Olympia High School (1950).

Phyllis married Wesley Anderson and together they raised 5 children and fostered countless others. Phyllis worked as a bank teller until she changed careers to operate a daycare and raise her family. She also owned and managed Velkommen Mobile Home Park until 2012.

Phyllis will be remembered for her welcoming nature – especially if you spent a holiday with her family, the love of crafting, and her ready laugh.

She is survived by her sister Jean, daughters Suzanna (Dave) Dethlefs, Nancy (Cliff) Ziesemer, Jennie Anderson, and son Jim (Lisa) Andersen. She will be missed by her 8 grandchildren and many great grandchildren. Phyllis was preceded in death by her parents (Kyle and Irene Payne and Roy Wolstenholme), husband Wes, daughter Judy (Tony) Briscoe and great grandson Nasir.

The family would like to thank Tami, Kim, and the many caregivers at the Hampton Memory Care facility for their compassionate, loving care over the past several years.
