Obituary of Phyllis Ann Zaher
Phyllis Ann Zaher, 93, of Cambridge passed away on Tuesday, September 10, 2019 at Home Again in Cambridge.
Phyllis was born on September 11, 1925 in West Allis, Wisconsin to Harry and Agnes (Adler) Bonin. She graduated from St. Pius XI High School. On October 15, 1949 Phyllis married Francis Zaher, who passed away in 2005. Phyllis was employed for more than 25 years as a Sales Associate at Bergner’s in Beloit, Wisconsin.
Phyllis has been a member at Our Lady of Assumption Catholic Church, in Beloit, WI. and at St. Pius X Catholic Church in Cambridge, Wi. She enjoyed traveling with her sisters and brothers-in-law, but her greatest joy was following her children, grandchildren and even great-grandchildren to all of their events. Her day was not complete until she could say the Rosary.
