Obituary for Phyllis D. Sommer

Phyllis Dorthy Sommer, age 89, of Sheboygan, passed away on December 15, 2017.

She was born on January 19, 1928 in Manitowoc, WI, a daughter of the late George and Rose (Buretta) Tulach.

On May 1, 1948 she married Calvin Keil Sommer at St. Mary Catholic Church in Manitowoc. He preceded her in death on April 21, 1991.

Phyllis worked at Vollrath Co. in Accounting and also at H.C. Prange as a Sales Associate.

Granddaughter, Tammy Darling, was promised a trip to Las Vegas for her 18th birthday, which the two of them went on and it was very memorable.

Great Granddaughter, Amanda Darling, spent a lot of time with Phyllis telling stories about what was going on in each of their lives, going out together for meals, and making each other laugh. Phyllis was so proud of how she has grown up and to see her graduate.

Great Granddaughter, Cheyanne Darling, was her little angel. Her eyes lit up when she entered the room and they loved to play games, but most of all Cheyanne loved to read to her which made each of them very happy.

What a wonderful legacy Phyllis left behind.
