PORTAGE-Phyllis Jean Stiemke, age 93, formerly of Arlington, passed away peacefully on Saturday, Aug. 10, 2013, at Columbia County Health Care Center in Wyocena. Phyllis was born on Aug. 2, 1920, in Portage, the youngest daughter of Lilly and Ernest Gage.

Phyllis was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother who will be dearly missed for her quiet strength, dignity, grace and her endearing smile. She was a talented needle crafter and was well-known for her tatting. She was a member of the Arlington United Methodist Church and a former member of the Arlington Garden Club, and enjoyed gardening, reading and bird watching.
