Obituary for Phyllis Martin
Phyllis Marie Martin, Frederic, died February 14, 2007 at Regions Hospital in St. Paul, MN after a brief illness. She was 79 years old. Phyllis was born in Polk County on June 12, 1927, the daughter of Henry and Ruth Knieff. She was quite taken with Floyd Martin, the turkey farmer (and airplane pilot) from across the road, so she married him in 1947. They spent most of the next 40 years dairy farming and raising their five children in the Clam Falls area. After Floyd's death in 1988, Phyllis lived in a house they built together by Grass Lake. She spent the last 5 years as a resident of the Frederic Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. She is survived by children Diane Martin (James Hudson) of Madison, Nancy Danielewicz of Frederic, Arthur (Kristan) Martin of Frederic, Julie Martin of Frederic, and Anders Martin of Milwaukee; 7 grandchildren, one great grandchild, and sisters Gretchen (Roger) Johnson of Amery and Polly (Michael) Klein of Wooster, OH. She was preceded in death by her sister Helen in 1937 and brother David in 2001. Funeral services were held on Saturday, February 17, at the Frederic Evangelical Free Church with Pastor Greg Lund officiating. The Rowe Funeral Home, Frederic, was entrusted with arrangements.
