Obituary

Phyllis Yvonne Stark passed gently in her sleep on January 18, 2020, after a recent bout with cancer. She was 76 years old. She was at her home surrounded by family.

She was born in Fort Collins, CO, on December 24, 1943, to Bill and Iris (Cook) Schreiner. She grew up in Wellington, where her family farmed. During her senior year of high school, the family moved to Fort Collins, where Phyllis graduated in 1961. She married Lee Stark on September 2, 1961. Together they had two children, Jeffrey and Dianna. Lee died in a motorcycle accident in 1970; Phyllis never remarried. She moved her family to Greeley the following year, where they lived and thrived in a warm and friendly neighborhood. She worked for over twenty years in microelectronics at NCR/AT&T/Symbios Logic in Fort Collins, then at the Toddy’s bakery in Greeley and finally at Rubadue Wire in Greeley, before ultimately retiring. She was also involved for a time with the Greeley Master Gardeners program.

Phyllis led a busy and colorful life. She was a wonderful cook, a lovely dinner guest, and a terrific food adventure buddy. She was a vibrant and friendly conversationalist who maintained lasting bonds with friends and neighbors, and visits usually involved steaming cups of tea and laughter. She was also, as many knew, a formidable Boggle player. She so enjoyed the game that her key interest was not who scored the most points but what the best words were, regardless of who found them or whether the timer had already stopped. Among her happiest times, though, were those she spent with her hands in the soil, making hearty plants grow from seed, and the times she spent with her family that she loved so deeply. Her children and grandchildren never had a doubt about how much she loved them; she was the heart and soul of the family and they all adored her.

Phyllis’s driving philosophies were these: that life is full of choices, that we are as happy as we make up our minds to be, and that the important things in life have artistic merit. She was able to see the beauty of insects, hear the song in distant thunder, and feel childlike wonder when staring at the rising moon. She appreciated literature, dance, movies and cartoons. She especially loved music and sang unselfconsciously and often. Most of all, she cared deeply, about her family, friends, nature, and the world. She was funny and wise and aware. We will miss her forever but will do her the greatest honor by healing, moving forward, and being happy. She left an amazing legacy.

Phyllis is survived by her son, Jeffrey (Jennifer) Stark of Fountain, CO; daughter Dianna Stark (Michael White) of Greeley, CO; grandchildren Alex and Ethan Stark, granddaughter Katie Schmidt, and step-grandson Evan White; and sisters Elsie Nogle of Bellevue, WA and Carol Frederick of Evans, CO. She was preceded in death by parents William Earl Schreiner and Iris Maxine (Cook) Schreiner Harms, and husband Richard Lee Stark.

Celebration of Life for Phyllis Stark will be Saturday, January 25, 1:00pm at Adamson Life Celebration Home, 2000 47th Ave., Greeley, CO. with a dessert reception to follow.

Anyone wishing to make a contribution in her honor may donate to KUNC/National Public Radio or PBS.
