Phyllis E. Wacker

March 25, 2027 — March 10, 2024

Westminster

Phyllis E. Wacker, a beacon of joy and adventure of Falls City Nebraska and Westminster Colorado, peacefully passed away on March 10th, 2024, leaving behind a legacy of love and cherished memories. She was 96 years old.

 

Born in Lake Wales, Florida, on March 25th, 1927, Phyllis's heart belonged to Falls City, Nebraska, where she spent her childhood and formative years. Her spirit of compassion and thirst for knowledge led her to serve her country during World War II as a dedicated employee of the FBI in Washington D.C., where she played a vital role in classifying fingerprints when she was 19 years old.

 

Returning to Falls City, Nebraska, Phyllis served her local community as a member of the sheriff's office for two years before pursuing her passion for nursing. In Omaha, Nebraska, she attended nurses training, where she not only gained the skills to care for others but also formed lifelong bonds with her 9 classmates.

 

For 8 years Phyllis worked between Nebraska and Colorado as a nurse. She found her home at Western Electric Co. in Colorado where Phyllis worked as an industrial nurse for over 26 years. This is where she found joy in caring for others and forged deep friendships with her colleagues.

 

Phyllis's love for adventure knew no bounds. She was a fearless traveler, exploring all 50 states, multiple times over, and venturing to foreign lands and traveling on nine memorable cruises. Her journeys were not just about seeing new places but about embracing new cultures, connecting with people, and fostering lifelong friendships. Phyllis loved to travel with her friends and/or family. 

 

Phyllis will be remembered for her infectious laughter, her boundless compassion, and her unwavering spirit of adventure. She leaves behind a legacy of kindness and a treasure trove of memories that will continue to inspire those who were fortunate enough to know her.

 

Phyllis is survived by her devoted family, and a wide circle of friends who will cherish her memory forever.

 

Though Phyllis may have embarked on her final journey, her spirit will forever live on in the hearts of those she touched and the adventures she shared.

 

"Life is short, and we do not have much time to gladden the hearts of those who travel with us, so be swift to love and make haste to be kind." - Henri-Frédéric Amiel
