She was preceded in death by two brothers; Robert and James (Ellie) Suggitt and her parents; Orrin J. and Mildred C. (Seyfarth) Suggitt. Phyllis was a long-time member of “Lady Lions” of Vandercook Lions Club. She was active in the 4-H Club teaching sewing, cake decorating, arts and crafts, was a former Girl Scout leader and Cub Scout den mother, was active at her church coordinating funeral dinners, carried on a tradition making Christmas candy with her family for the last 40 years and was an avid square and round dancer, where her sewing skills provided colorful outfits for Erv and herself. Her greatest joy, however, was spending time with her family. For over 60 years she was a dedicated member at St. Johns United Church of Christ (801 South Mechanic St., Jackson, MI 49203) where a memorial service to honor her life was held yesterday, Saturday, December 29, 2018 at 2 pm with Pastor Dan Kidder-McQuown officiating. Contributions in her memory may be made to the St. Johns United Church of Christ.
