Loving wife and best friend of the late Hans Henke (2014), with whom she now rests peacefully. Amazingly supportive mother to Paul (Whitney) and Katherine (Jared).

Heartfelt condolences from the Lenssen family and co-parishoners at St. Joseph's. Phyllis is remembered by our sons who got to know her kind and gentle spirit while they were at St. Peter Elementary Catholic School and where I was VP. She was especially supportive, blessing us with her smile and encouraging words during the toughest of times and reconciling at all times. Why? Because she was able to see the best in each person and "raise them up". Rest in peace, Phyllis.

Anyone who was blessed to know Phyllis knows that she was the kindest, most selfless, genuine, caring, loving, thoughtful and generous person. They also know how fiercely she loved her family. I've never known anyone like her and I am so lucky that she called me a friend. My fondest memories from St. Peter always include making Phyllis laugh so hard she cried. You are not gone dear friend because you have touched the lives of so many. xo

I was so blessed to have worked with Phyllis at St. Peter. She taught me so much about love and life. She cherished the people she worked with, and loved all the students in our school. She brought God's love to us all. She is a true angel.
She spoke so highly to me about her family and her love for them.
You are all in my prayers.
