She grew up in Butlerville and was very fond of saying that she walked up Butlerville Hill to school every day, even in the snow. She had fond memories of traveling to Brighton, staying with relatives, and spending warm summers in the cool of the mountains.\r\n\r\nShe attended and graduated from Jordan High School. After high school she worked for Day Murray Music where she met and fell in love with an Air Corp officer, William Martell Plott, who looked so handsome in his uniform. They courted and enjoyed dancing to the Big Bands at the Rainbow Rendezvous and Saltair. They were married Friday, June 13, 1947, and when Dad died they had been married 71 years.\r\n\r\nAfter Dad’s time in the reserves and living in San Antonio, they ended up in Murray and built a home on 5300 South where they raised their 4 children: Kent, Karen, Allison, and Clarke.\r\n\r\nPhyllis was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints holding numerous leadership callings, but one of her favorites was Webelos Leader. She also served in the Jordan River Temple, and she will be remembered by family and friends for her countless acts of service.\r\n\r\nMom really loved her kids, grandkids, great- and great-great-grandkids. She loved reading stories to the kids and grandkids. We always had story time in the summer, and she loved playing games and would play “hand and foot” whenever she could find participants. She also loved doing puzzles and continued doing them until the end. Quite a few are framed and hanging on the walls. One favorite tradition spanning over 40 years was to go to the Homestead in Midway over Labor Day and spend time with the whole family. She enjoyed planning and holding Christmas Eve open houses for extended family; and they were fun events, almost like a family reunion. She and Dad always went the extra mile to make sure Christmas was special for kids and grandkids.\r\n\r\nMom loved making quilts and giving them away to family and friends. I think it was very enjoyable for her once she got a quilt on the frames to have her “quilting sisters” from the ward come over and sit around the quilt visiting and sewing. She must have made hundreds over the years. She kept sewing and tying quilts during the pandemic and only stopped about 2 months ago when it finally became too difficult.\r\n\r\nMom is survived by her older brother, Dee (Elaine) Swenson; children, Kent (Terrie) Plott, Allison (Jay) Sisam, and Clarke (Amanda) Plott; and numerous grandchildren, great- and great-great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, Virgil and Ellen Swenson; her husband, William Martell Plott; daughter, Karen Louise Wright; and daughter-in-law, Connie Plott.\r\n\r\nWe want to thank Intermountain Home Care and Hospice and especially her caregiver, “Ofoe” for their hours of service given to Mom during the final period of her life. They were a great blessing to her and her family.\r\n\r\nFuneral services will be held on Monday, September 13, 2021 at the Murray Park Ward, 495 East 5600 South, Murray, Utah 84107. Due to Covid there will be no viewing. A family gathering will take place at 10:00 a.m. that morning at the ward house for a final goodbye and family prayer. This will be followed by the funeral at 11:00 a.m. The burial will take place at Murray City Cemetery. The funeral will be live-streamed and can be accessed via the Jenkins-Soffe website.
