(nee Lane)

Born September 1, 1938 in Marseilles, Illinois, Phyllis Marie was a daughter of George and Genevieve (nee Haff) Lane. She was raised and educated in Marseilles and graduated from Marseilles High School with the Class of 1956. On December 5, 1959, Phyllis married Thomas Stott in Marseilles, and together they made a home and raised their family. She enjoyed playing bingo and going to car shows, but her most beloved memories were those made with family. Phyllis made her family her number one priority; loved her husband and children dearly, and cherished being a grandma and great grandma.
