Phyliss M. Ament

November 28, 1932 — February 3, 2024

Wausau

Phyliss Ament, 91, of Wausau, passed away February 3, 2024.

She was born November 28, 1932, in the Town of Easton to parents George and Hazel (Mortenson) Mogensen. She lived in Easton on the family farm until she was 16 when she moved to Wausau. She met Raymond Ament at the Rothschild roller rink, and they were married June 27, 1953. To this union was born three children.

Phyliss loved to bake, so much so, that she found a career at Wausau Insurance in the kitchen. At Christmas time, she baked 147 dozen cookies for their holiday parties. She loved going up north to the family cottage where she enjoyed sitting and watching the lake and reading. Phyliss also quilted at St. Stephen Lutheran Church where the ladies made quilts that were then sent to Lutheran World Relief. She also enjoyed working in the kitchen at church and caring for her husband's aunt at Harmony House. She and Ray had a garden and enjoyed canning their vegetables and fruit. She even made jelly and relish. Phyliss will always be remembered by her family for her cinnamon rolls, pizza, and apple kuchen.

Phyliss is survived by her children, Beverly (Richard) Zyduck of Prescott, WI and Lyle (Caroline) Ament of Rib Mountain; grandchildren, Libby (Aaron) Harker of Roberts, WI, Marissa (Patrick) Sawyer of Cincinnati, OH, Nathan (Elizabeth) Zyduck of Charlotte, NC, Noah Zyduck of Prescott, WI, Dan (Danielle) Ament of Lake Linden, MI, Kari (Thomas Butler) Ament of Wausau, Kayla Ament of Wausau, and Ryan (Samantha) Warner of Mosinee; great-grandchildren, Frances, Joey, AJ, and Richie Harker, Beau and Vivian Zyduck, Kaydance and Ezale Elizondo, Kyra and Kamea Butler, and Emma Warner; siblings, Arlene (Oliver) Hoppe, Charlotte (Jerry) Bown, and Karen Frye; sisters-in-law, Nancy Mogensen and Katy Anderson; and brother-in-law, Jim Boerner.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Raymond Ament and son, Randy Ament.
