Worsley, 9 9, of Meridian, passed away March 11, 2010 at her home. Arrangements a re pending under the direction of Cloverdale Funeral Home. Published i n Idaho Statesman on March 13, 2010. Phyllis Worsley Phyllis, wife, mo ther, grandmother and friend, passed peacefully into the arms of her l oving Heavenly Father on March 11, 2010, at her daughter, Sandra's, ho me in Meridian at the age of 98. She was born to David and Alexandra A uman on November 4, 1911 in Breckinridge, MN. She and her five sister s and older brother were raised and schooled in Wilmer, MN, spending t heir summers close by at their family home on Ottertail Lake. Phylli s attended the Nursing program at the University of North Dakota. Sh e did her practical at Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis. Phyllis w as affiliated with the Alpha Phi Sorority at U of ND and held an activ e membership until she passed. On a blind date set up by one of her so rority sisters, she met her future love, Cliff Worsley, who took her t o dinner, and to his surprise she ordered a sirloin steak with all th e trimmings, he ordered tea. He was very short on cash after paying fo r dinner so they agreed to walk the short two miles back to campus. Th is turned out to be true love and 70+ years of marriage. 1936 brough t the couple to Salt Lake City, UT, with an offer of a new job for Cli ff. A son, David, and a daughter, Sandra, arrived during their four pl us years there. Every few months, mother would find a bigger and bette r furnished apartment to move into by taking the baby buggy, childre n in tow, and walking the neighborhood comparing price and space. WWI I called and dad joined the Army as a First Lieutenant stationed at Ca mp Kilmer in Plainfield, New Jersey. A spunky little girl named Kath y was born soon after they arrived. Phyllis loved the trips into New Y ork, spending their weekends when Cliff could get away from the Camp . Many Broadway shows and dancing to the live dance bands: Dorsey, Mil ler, Goodman, etc. were among her favorite memories along with many wo nderful stories of friends, acquaintances, and military experiences th at resulted in life long friendships. 1945 brought a return to Salt La ke and then in 1949 to Boise and a new position for Cliff with Boise P ayette Lumber Company, later to become Boise Cascade Corporation. Phyl lis continued to search out bargains! She had a love of antiques befor e it became popular, and especially furnishing her home with layaway i tems from Betty Feeney's store in downtown Boise. Dad's favorite, a wi ngback chair, she purchased for 50 cents at a neighborhood moving sale . This chair was in her bedroom (recovered many times over) when she d ied. Mother would cook large dinners for her family and friends. Grea t times were had with the neighbors; Blues, Theils, Nagels, Drabbles , and Wrights in the backyard on Kootenai Street. Jimmy Blue built a c abin cruiser for fishing which was used more by the whole gang joinin g him in McCall many fourth of July's for fun and nonsense. Thanksgivi ng brought out the fineries; mom's wonderful turkey dressing, homemad e dinner rolls, and rutabagas, shared with many guests. Kathy remember s mom's homemade hash made from leftover pot-roast; chicken with grav y and homemade noodles; and Aunt Nettie's large white cake with boile d frosting. Kathy tried to make that cake years later, but it just wa s not right. Mom said, "You can't use an electric beater, you must bea t the batter by hand." Mother loved traveling the world with Cliff an d their friends - making many more friends along the way. For many yea rs Palm Springs was their favorite winter spot inviting their marrie d children to join them there. It was during this time we noticed th e slow change in mother's memory although her body remained strong an d active. The family cabin in McCall was the summer retreat the last 2 0+ years of both mom and dad's life. She did love to read and went thr ough the same book many times right up to a month before she passed. O n behalf of the entire family, we express our sincere appreciation fo r the countless people who loved and supported mom over the years. Sal a Fetzic was a wonderful blessing to mother over six years, never miss ing a day. She took mom to her home many days and overnight when it wa s needed. She treated mother as her own family. Also, Fikrita Suljic c ame faithfully each week with her sweet smile and cheerful dispositio n along with hugs for mom. Julie Flowers also touched mom's life the l ast couple of years with reminders to mom of her sisters and parents t hrough family photos. St. Luke's Hospice nurses Brook, Linda, and soci al worker Julie, were so very helpful and kind during mom's final days . ~I won't be far away for life goes on so if you need me, call an d I will come. Though you can't see or touch me, I'll be near, and i f you listen with your heart, You'll hear all of my love around you so ft and clear. And then when you must come this way alone, I'll greet y ou with a smile and say, Welcome home.~author unknown Phyllis is survi ved by her daughters, Sandra L.
