He preceded her in death in 1986. She was a member of St. Mary Catholic Church in Hilbert where she also belonged to the Christian Women. Phyllis further belonged to the Hilbert Senior Citizens and looked forward to the fellowship at those gatherings. During her life, Phyllis worked as a cook at the Hilbert High School where she was able to joyfully cater to her grandchildren and the youth in her community. She was a sweet lady of quiet demeanor who beamed with joy at every visit from each and every member of her family. Phyllis crocheted many beautiful works of art which have become cherished remembrances for all of the loved ones in her life. She is survived by 2 children: Lorraine (Al) Fochs of Hilbert, Kenneth (Carol) Diedrich of Menasha; 10 grandchildren; 25 great-grandchildren; 17 great-great-grandchildren; and a brother: Ralph (Ann) Dorn of Grand Junction, CO.

Friends may call at the church from 10:00 AM until 10:45 AM on Saturday, July 28, 2012. Memorials are appreciated in the name of Phyllis C. Diedrich. Phyllis's family would like to thank the entire staff of the Chilton Care Center, Century Ridge, and the Calumet County Hospice for all of the wonderful loving care that was provided to her.
