Phyllis Ketchum, age 78, passed away on Thursday, November 4, 2021. Phyllis was born on December 4, 1942, to Fred & Dorothy (Pasch) Freeman. Phyllis is lovingly remembered by her husband of 60 years, Allan Ketchum; her children: Terry Ketchum, Tammy (Steph Rice) Ketchum and Todd Ketchum; her siblings: Doris Merrill and Donna Goldstein; six grandchildren: Lindsey, AJ (Haley), Elizabeth, Eli, Abe, and Zeke as well as many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Phyllis was preceded by her parents; and her in-laws: Andy and Betty Ketchum and her sister Joyce Walker. Phyllis was well known for her banana cake and her wine cake. Her children and grandchildren were her greatest passion. She enjoyed her home on Pine Lake for over 60 years where she waterskied, pontooned and had a jet ski. Phyllis had a great sense of humor. She was very giving and put others first especially her friends and neighbors. A dedicated wife and mother – she will be dearly missed.
