Phyllis Ann Feldmeier Phyllis Ann Feldmeier
HOKAH, Minn. -- Phyllis Ann Feldmeier, 90, of Hokah died Sunday, Oct. 20, 2019, at the Mayo Clinic Health System in La Crosse. She was born March 18, 1929, to Frank and Matilda (Forer) Heberlein. Phyllis grew up and attended country school in Thompson Valley and later moved with her parents, brothers and sister to Bush Valley. She married Bernie Feldmeier Oct. 16, 1954, at St. Peter's Catholic Church in Hokah. They had two children.
Phyllis traveled with Bernie to Texas, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Missouri and Colorado, while he served in the Air Force. Much of this time was spent in Missouri, where Phyllis worked at a Kansas City hospital, assisting nurses working with patients. Eventually they returned to Minnesota, settling down in Hokah.
Phyllis performed a number of jobs throughout her life. One of her favorites was providing child care in her home for kids in the neighborhood. She will be remembered for her love of baking cookies and breads, always having a colorful garden, sewing countless doll clothes and beautiful embroidery work and enjoying years of camping with Bernie and friends. She was always busy doing something.
Phyllis is survived by her husband of 65 years, Bernie; son, Mike; daughter-in-law, Anna; daughter, Deb; son-in-law, Chris; two grandchildren, Sierra and Tony; sister, Arlene; and many nieces and nephews.
In lieu of flowers, the family is wishing that any donations be made to Neighbors in Action, 333 Main St., La Crescent, Minn., 55947.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, Oct. 25, at St. Peter's Catholic Church, Hokah. Father Jason Kern will officiate. Burial will follow in the Mt. Calvary Cemetery, Hokah. Friends may call from 9 a.m. until the time of services Friday at the church. The Schumacher-Kish Funeral & Cremation Services of La Crescent are in charge of arrangements.

I am sending strayers and sympathies to the Feldmeier Family.
Deb was in my high school class and Mike was ahead of us.
So sorry for your loss.

My sympathies to Bernie, Mike & Deb. Phyllis will be missed by the many people whose lives she has touched.
I have really good memories of Phyllis. One in particular is going to the Money Creek Campground when they were camping with my parents, Don & Janice Lemke and neighbors, Nick & Adeline Jacobson. We would have a picnic supper and then sit around the campfire with the kids. Sometimes roasting marshmallows and just talk. So fun.
