Today I must catch Phyllis before she heads back home. She was born in Balaton in 1934, to David and Emily Anderson. David was a farmer all of his life. Phyllis graduated from high school in Alexandria.


After working around Alexandria for a short time, Phyllis went to Minneapolis where she first found work at the home of a druggist before working at Honeywell.
