Phyllis Jean Lewis Prible, 82
Posted on November 20, 2014
Phyllis Jean Lewis Prible peacefully passed away at the age of 82 on Friday, Nov. 14, as the sun was rising in Malvern, Pa. She was surrounded by her family at her home of 47 years in the suburbs of Philadelphia.
She was born April 3, 1932 in Huntington, Ind., to Roscoe R. and Mildred Lewis.
She is survived by an adoring and romantic husband, Glen V. Prible; three sons, Steven L. (Kathy) Prible, Kitt I. (Cynthia) Prible, and Kim E. Prible; and a daughter, Susan P. (Werner) Warmuth. She is also the proud grandmother of four grandchildren and six great grandchildren.
Also surviving are a sister, Helen Kramer, and three brothers, Richard (Shirley) Lewis, Jim (Maralee) Lewis, and Jack (Sharon) Lewis. Her siblings all live in Indiana.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Roscoe and Mildred Lewis; her in-laws, Clare and Edith Prible; and a brother, Robert Lewis.
Phyllis was a proud and loving woman. She adored her husband Glen and was four days short of celebrating their 64th anniversary. An interesting note — they never missed an anniversary together. Glen always took the day off to celebrate their love and cherished each moment together.
They were world class travelers, spanning six continents and reaching all 50 U.S. states. Phyllis loved the adventure, exploring the culture and bringing back the memories that lasted a lifetime – and longer.
She was a world-class lady, with love, compassion and true awe of everything around her. She never ceased to appreciate what she saw, learned and experienced the world around. But she was a humble woman, never assuming her place in the world.
Two memorial services are planned for Phyllis. The first will be held in the Malvern/Frazier, Pa., area at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 23, 2014. There will be a one-hour visitation at the D’Anjolell Memorial Home on Lancaster Avenue followed by the service at 11 a.m. and a private luncheon at the Chester Valley Country Club, where she had been a member since 1977. A second service, in Indiana, will be held in late April with a specific date to be announced.
The family is requesting a memorial donation in lieu of flowers be sent to the Boehmer United Methodist Church, 3467S-600W, Liberty Center, IN 46766. Please include in the memo section: Clare & Edith Prible Scholarship – Phyllis J. Prible. This scholarship fund was founded in 1996 after the passing of Edith Prible. Edith’s grandfather, John Clark, and his son Rufus were founders of the church in 1886.
