Phyllis Y. Vandervort

Phyllis passed away Sept. 16, 2011, at her home in Chino Valley, Ariz. She was 81.

She was born Dec. 10, 1929, in Sapulpa, Okla., to Emile and Evelyn (Atterberry) Kuhn. In 1934, she and her family moved to Weston, W.Va., where she attended St. Patrick's Grade School. The family then moved to Morgantown, W.Va., where Phyllis finished her schooling, graduating with honors from Morgantown High School in 1947.

In 1950, she married her high school sweetheart, Harold Vandervort. They became the parents of eight beautiful children.

Phyllis was preceded in death by her parents, a daughter, Cheryl Ann, a son, Mark, and a brother, Paul.

Phyllis suffered most of her life from the crippling pains of rheumatoid arthritis, but never did she complain. He greatest passions and joys were in raising her children, sewing, and filling the house with the delicious aroma of her freshly baked bread.
