Phyllis I. Conway, age 91 of Brodhead, died Friday, Oct. 28, 2022, at Monroe Health Services. She was born on Aug. 7, 1931, in Slayton, Minn., the daughter of George and Hattie (Parish) Wentzel. She attended school at Currie, Minn., and worked at Suntree Country Club in Florida for many years, retiring in 1994.

She was a member of the Church of the Nazarene in Brodhead.

She enjoyed spending time with her family and enjoyed doing crafts with the grandchildren. She also enjoyed doing plastic canvas creations, word puzzles, and picture puzzles, also thrift store shopping and going to rummage sales with her friends.

Her favorite time of all, other than with family, was watching pro wrestling with her best friend Nancy Frye. They watched that show every week and knew the names of every wrestler.

The family thanks Nancy for being such a good friend to their mother.

She is survived by her children, Debbie (Steve Runice) of Brodhead, Pam Conway of Brodhead, Steve Johnson of Milton, and Cheryl (Daniel) Tschudy of Shopiere; 7 grandchildren; 14 great grandchildren; brothers,  George (Carol) Wentzel of Troy, Mich.; and Boyd Wentzel of South Lyon, Mich.; a sister, Joyce Simons of Brodhead. She was preceded in death by her parents, her brothers Daniel, Stanley, and Lloyd Wentzel; and sister Betty Wentzel.

Per Phyllis’s wishes, private services will be held. Burial will take place at Greenwood cemetery, Brodhead. EVERSON Funeral Home is assisting the family.

The family would like to send a heartfelt thanks to Mary Ripper for all she did for their mother.  Your kindness to mom will never be forgotten.

Thank you also to the Monroe Health Services and staff, for all you did in the care of our mother; to My Choice Wisconsin for always being there to answer any and all questions, no matter how big or how small; and to St. Croix hospice staff, Emily and Monica, for being so patient and kind to our Mom throughout this whole process. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you all.
