Phyllis Emilie Holman

Phyllis Emilie (nee Nobbe) Holman age 81, of Vadnais Heights passed away peacefully on October 23, 2023. Phyllis was born on April 7, 1942 in St. Paul, Minnesota and attended North St. Paul High School and St. Cloud State University.

Phyllis met Terry Holman through friends and married in 1964. She worked at the American Hoist before staying at home to raise her children. A devoted wife and mother, Phyllis was always the "room mother" at her children's elementary school and a Girl Scout leader for many years. Driving her station wagon to various activities, Phyllis loved being a mom and involved in her children's lives. Phyllis worked in dental offices before retirement and then began her most favorite role of all...grandma. She had a special "grandma's closet" filled with toys and games, hosted a Halloween costume party every year for the grandkids and loved to celebrate their birthdays. She enjoyed hosting parties, Fourth of July picnics and was proud of her immaculate yard.

She was preceded in death by parents Charles and Emilie (Neumann) Nobbe. Phyllis is survived by her loving husband of nearly 60 years Terrance Holman; daughter Carrie Holman Traxler and son Paul (Linda) Holman; grandchildren Lauren and Ryan Traxler, Emilie (Ben) Olund, Michael and Matthew Holman.
