Phillis Wonsewicz, 91, a long-term Aberdeen resident, passed away peacefully Friday morning, September 28, 2018 at Westhaven Villa Assisted Living.

Phillis was born on October 30, 1926 in Ironwood, Michigan to Arvid and Esther Anderson (Mattson). She was the oldest of four siblings, two brothers (Fred and Richard) and two sisters (Pat and Mary Anne). The family later moved to Milwaukee, WI. where she would graduate from Washington High School.

In her younger years, Phillis enjoyed ice skating, reading and going to the movie theater. Before she was married, Phillis worked at Gimbals department store during the holidays in sales and during the war, worked as a telephone operator.

Phillis married Matthew “Matt” Eliasson of Anvil Michigan on June 2, 1945. After the oldest daughter (Carol) was born, they relocated to Aberdeen, WA. where they would have 3 more girls (Mary, Linda and Annette) and 1 son (John). They later divorced. Phillis later married Henry Wonsewicz of Aberdeen. Matt passed away in 1992, Henry passed away in 1991 and Phillis never remarried.

During her adult years, Phillis enjoyed playing the piano, reading non-fiction and especially biographies of well known persons.
Phillis worked as a nurses’ aid at Pacific Care Center for 20 years. She was a compassionate caregiver, and won nursing assistant of the year while working at the center.

Phillis was very proud of her 5 grandchildren, (Matthew Anderson (Mika) of Las Vegas, NV; Maija Anderson-Pulford (Ernest) of Seattle WA; Julie Day (David) of Hoquiam, WA; Stacie Standerfer (Lee) of Graham, WA; Megan Monson (Michael) of Gig Harbor, WA; three of the five received nursing degrees. Phillis is survived by two of her daughters, Mary Anderson (Charles) of Oracle, AZ; Linda Leech (Vince) of Boise, ID; and one son, John Eliasson (Maggie) of Olympia, WA. Phillis is also survived by 7 great-grandchildren, James and Jena Wakefield, Maggie and Emma Pulford, Milana Anderson, and Jack and Ellie Standerfer. She was tickled to have twin great-grand babies born this June.

The family would like to especially Thank the staff at Westhaven Villa, Harbor Home Health and Hospice, and Catholic Community Services. Your care, attention and kindness was very appreciated!
