May 20, 1920 - April 15, 2013
Phyllis Elizabeth LaMayeau, 92, passed away peacefully with her 2 daughters at her side on April 15, 2013 in Gardnerville , NV . She was born in Minneapolis , MN on May 20, 1920. She married Bill LaMayeau on Sept. 15, 1942 and they enjoyed a wonderful marriage of 62 years. Not only did she create beautiful homes for us in Minnesota , WA, and CA, but she gave us special childhoods full of incredible memories and adventures. She instilled in us a curiosity for lifelong learning that has been passed down from generation to generation. During her final days, she imparted to several family members the importance of getting a good education, making something of yourself, living up to your potential, and making your family proud of you. Our Mother was the epitome of a lady – she was gracious, kind, positive, and lived her life by the Golden Rule. She was an exemplary role model and an inspiration for her doting family. After our Father’s death, she moved into Merrill Gardens where she lived for 8 years. She made many friends, loved to play bingo, read voraciously, was a scholar of the Bible, and was treated like family and loved by the staff. She was preceded in death by her parents, Thomas and Elizabeth Frenette, her two brothers, Ken and Thomas, and her adoring husband, Bill. She is survived by an admiring family. It was her request that her entire family be acknowledged. She leaves behind her daughters, Elizabeth (Glen), Lynne (Eric), son Tom (Diana), 3 grandchildren, Andrea, Allison (Jason), Aaron (Elizabeth), 6 great grandchildren, Aaryn, Eva, Adrianna, Angelina (Stewart), Joey (Kristen), Anthony (Kara) & 16 great great grandchildren, Alexis, Alanis, Aireanna, Ashlee, Alexander, Andrea, Jocelyn, Evelyn, Leo, Lance, Alyson, Faith, Michael, Lily, Olivia, & Ella. It took awhile, but she prayed for each of us every night. She asked that any donations be made to the MS Society, Habitat for Humanity, or Doctors without Borders. Our Mother lives on within our hearts and leaves us a legacy of love.
