Phyllis, daughter of Harry and Hilga (Wesley) Dalkie, was born on January 4, 1928 in Fairchild, Wisconsin. She was educated at Fairchild Elementary and graduated from Fairchild High School in 1946. She was united in marriage to John Frueh on Aug. 5, 1947, at St. John’s Catholic Church in Fairchild. The couple began their life together in Marshfield before moving back to Fairchild in 1952. She was employed as the Office Manager for the Tri-County News in Osseo for forty-seven years before retiring in 2008. The family moved to Altoona in 1968, where she lived until failing health this summer required the care she received at Heritage Court Memory Care. In addition to their home in Altoona, the Frueh family spent many memorable times at their cabin on Lake Eau Claire.
