Phyllis Ann Drumm (1927-2016)
Phyllis Drumm, long-time resident of Carmel Valley, passed away on December 28, 2016 surrounded by her loving family.
Born and raised in Boone, Iowa, Phyllis traveled extensively and lived on both coasts. She ultimately decided the Valley was the place for her, and remained for 31 years.
Phyllis graduated from Stephens College in Missouri, then worked as a librarian. Throughout her life, she was active in various sports and social activities. However, Phyllis said that her greatest achievement was her family.
She was a devoted wife to Victor for nearly 66 years, until his passing in 2014. She and Vic raised three sons with kindness and patience and were ultimately blessed with three grandsons.
Phyllis was unwaveringly cheerful and optimistic, with a wonderful sense of humor. Her beautiful smile will be missed by all who loved her.
However, as we are engulfed in sorrow at her loss, Phyllis would have been quick to console us with a determined, "Well, onward and upward!"
Phyllis is survived by sons Christopher Drumm (Amy Garrett) Polk City, Iowa and Dave Drumm (Rebecca) Marietta, Georgia; grandsons Neil, Ryan and Dylan. She was preceded in death by husband Vic, son Larry, brother Phil, and parents Nick and Mabel.
