Phyllis Kaiser Obituary

Phyllis (Nieboer) Kaiser, 74, was called to heavenly glory on Saturday, July 1, 2023, with her endeared husband and son, Douglas by her side at St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center in Toledo, Ohio. 

Phyllis was born February 16, 1949 in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada, the daughter of William and Henrietta Nieboer.

She attended the University of Alberta in the Dietician program after high school. She worked as a food service worker and dietary aid at Provost, Alberta Health Center for 30 years. In 2009 she moved to Camrose, Alberta and for many years was employed by Home Care Services. She thoroughly enjoyed caring for the elderly and those in need. Meeting George in late 2016, Phyllis moved to Defiance, Ohio and they were married in 2019.

Phyllis displayed her love for her Lord by serving Him as a worship team member at Grace Lutheran Church in Camrose, Alberta, and being president of the LWML while at Grace. At St. John Lutheran Church in Defiance she attended  numerous Bible studies and served on the Altar Guild. She also was an active member of the Ladies Aid.

Phyllis loved cooking, reading and traveling. Most important to her, however, was time spent keeping up with her children, grandchildren and family.

Son Steven (Nicole) DeWeert of Morinville, Alberta, with their children; Devon and Tyrell, son David (LeAnn) DeWeert with their child, Jordan of Edmonton of Alberta, daughter Teresa (Brent) Bonter of Camrose, Alberta, with their children; Derek (Kyra), Jeremy, Kimberly (Logan) Chapman, and Amber, son Douglas (Anne-Marie) DeWeert of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan with children; Michael and Jayne.

And surviving are 3 sisters; Shirley (Joe) Schalk of Delta, British Columbia, Marjorie (Dick) Scheurkogel of Lethbridge, Alberta, and Loretta Kopp of  Lethbridge, Alberta, as well as many other treasured family members and friends who are left to remember and cherish her memory.
