Pattock, who joined her beloved husband Bob in heaven on April 18, 2020, after a long illness. Phyllis was born on April 22, 1925, in Hastings, Nebraska. She was the youngest child of Frank and Anna McCammon. Her sister Winnifred and brother Jimmy passed away on the same

day in 1963.

In 1938, Phyllis joined her parents and moved from

Nebraska to Portland, Oregon, where she helped them

manage the Hood Loop Motel. In 1944, she met a

handsome Marine patrolling the Oregon beaches, and

eloped on August 7, 1945, with Robert "Bob" Pattock

just before he was sent to China. Bob briefly went AWOL

so the wedding could take place and because of it, lost

a stripe, busted from Sergeant to Corporal. They settled

in a home designed by Bob on Blue Lake in Fairview,

Oregon, where they happily resided for more than 45

years. Phyllis and Bob remained inseparable until Bob's

passing in April 2015.

They had three sons, Mike, Randy, and Lance. While

raising the boys, Phyllis had many jobs, including serving

as school secretary at Fairview Elementary School and

Reynolds High School. During her time at Fairview and

Reynolds, she befriended countless young people who,

to this day, fondly recall her wicked sense of humor and

strong desire to always be a positive influence in their lives.

More than just about anything, Phyllis loved

competitive sports. She and Bob never missed their

kids' football games, and again, she thoroughly enjoyed

being involved in the lives (and sometimes antics) of

the boys and their friends. They continued watching

their grandchildren's (Courtney and Hunter) numerous

athletic endeavors from grade school to college. They

hosted countless gatherings and bridge games at their

home on the lake; being surrounded by people was what

made Phyllis happiest. She had a genuine desire to find

out what made people "tick."

Boating was an integral part of Phyllis and Bob's lives.

Pulling the boys and their friends on water skis at Blue

Lake or fishing and camping at the Oregon Coast, Phyllis

thrived on the organized chaos of it all. They joined a

boating club called Trailer Sailors and cruised all of

the great Northwest's waterways. Laughter was forever

present. Always willing to try new activities, Phyllis and

Bob learned to ski in their 60s so they could join their

boys for outings at Mt. Hood/Timberline Lodge. Both

remained active well into their 80s, and traveled for years

following retirement, including spending several summers

working at Yellowstone Park as hosts.

Phyllis is survived by her three sons Mike, Randy (Sue),

and Lance (Lynda), 4 grandchildren Courtney, Hunter,

Jessica, Marissa, two great grandchildren and numerous

nieces, nephews, and cousins. She was inspirational for

her relentless curiosity of the world and those around her

and will be dearly missed.
