Dearest Mom, You were for the most part of my life my best friend, my sister and my child I never could have. At a very early age, I learned to take care of you and respect you. You were always there for me as I was always there for you until the end. You taught me the only way through life was to trust God and pray for everything. You told me Jesus was my best friend too. Thanks to our prayers and God's will be done, Erick and I were able to adopt our two China dolls, Selene and Angelene. They are a true gift from God above. We will all miss you "Grandma Selma." See you in Heaven - Love, Darlene.

Phyllis was born on Dec. 26, 1923, the daughter of John and Lydia (Trepp) Reiher in Butler County, Iowa, on a farm near Allison. She attended rural Butler and Grundy County schools and graduated from Allison High School in 1941.

After graduating she moved to Cedar Falls, Iowa, and worked in the office of Viking Pump Company. While in Cedar Falls, she met Lyle W. Hansen and they were married on Jan. 27, 1946, at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Cedar Falls. The couple farmed in Grundy and Butler County. In 1956, the family moved to Denver and Phyllis began working in the office of the Rath Packing Company, where she worked for 28 1/2 years until she retired in 1984. In 1959 the family moved to a farm near Plainfield, where they lived until their retirement from farming in 1976, when they moved to Waverly. Lyle died in 1989, and Phyllis remained in her Waverly home until August of 2000, when poor health required that she move to the Linden Place. After a serious fall, she entered Bartels Lutheran Retirement Community, where she was lovingly and compassionately cared for until her death.

Phyllis was a VFW Auxiliary member and past president of the organization. She belonged to the American Legion Auxiliary; was active on St. Paul's Lutheran Church funeral committee; and served on the board of Mitchell Manor for many years. She belonged to six different card groups and loved getting together with her friends and family.
