Phyllis L. Bryant (Mode) was born on Dec. 2, 1929, in the area of Independence, to Robert and Florence Mode. She passed away peacefully at home on June 26, 2017, surrounded by family.
She grew up in the Willamette Valley and on the Oregon Coast, and graduated from North Salem High School. After living briefly in Alaska, she came home to Oregon and married Robert (Bob) Bryant in 1960.
They settled in Dallas in the home they lived in for the remainder of their lives. She was a bookkeeper for many years, and retired from Praegitzer Industries.
Phyllis loved flower gardening and sharing her beautiful bouquets with many friends and family.
The beach and most any place outdoors was where she most enjoyed spending time.
Life revolved around her love for her family, with many weekends spent camping and fishing. Her constant companion since the loss of her husband has been her dog Joey, who she loved dearly.
Phyllis is survived by her son Robbin Bryant, of Dallas; her daughter and son-in-law Angie and James Adams, of Vancouver, Wash.; as well as her sisters, Margie Fredrickson and Shirley Weigel. She is preceded in death by her husband, Robert (Bob) Bryant.
There will be a celebration of life in the Dallas City Park at the Brandvold Kitchen on the new side of the park on July 22 at 1 p.m. We welcome all friends and family.
