Phyllis was the oldest of four children and grew up in Stambaugh, MI. She kept happy memories of time spent with family and friends at the Anderson Farm and Chicagon Lake.

An enthusiastic, lifelong educator she taught in Crystal Falls and Lansing, MI, Hibbing, MN, and Muskego, WI.
Phyllis was devoted to her family and was the beloved wife of Louis G. Sablich, who preceded her in death in 1999. Phyllis is survived by the following: cherished mother of Kathryn Sablich Kaesermann (Kurt), Michael Sablich (Joanne), Anne Peterson (Eric) and John Sablich (Joni); very special Nona/Baba of Krista Klasen (Pat), Samantha Sablich, Grace Kaesermann, Nick and Tony Peterson, Cyril Sablich, Audrey Sablich; and

Phyllis loved reading, traveling the world, being outdoors, Blue Lake, Anna Maria Island, her Scottish terriers, and spending every moment that she could with her family. She was a generous person whose smile both comforted and inspired; an accomplished piano player who entertained all requests; and the best pie baker that her family knows.
