Obituary for Phyllis Edna Kor

Worthington, MN

     Phyllis Edna Kor, 78, was born on December 31, 1931, the daughter of Philip and Edna (Meier) Pfeil at the family farm located in Bigelow Township, Worthington, MN.
     Phyllis graduated from Worthington High School in 1949 and attended Nursing School in Sioux Falls, SD. On January 5, 1950, she married the love of her life, William Jerry Kor in Sioux Falls. To this marriage three children were born, twin sons, Tim and Tom and daughter, Cheri.
     Phyllis worked as a Nursing Assistant at Worthington Regional Hospital for 11 years, and then as a teacher at the Nobles County DAC until her retirement in 1996.
     Phyllis was always up for a good game of Scrabble, and never turned down a chance to play cards. She really liked WINNING! She also enjoyed helping people, especially after her retirement, but most of all she treasured spending time with her kids, grandkids, and great grandkids.
     On September 24, 2010, surrounded by those who loved her, Phyllis passed away in the very same room that she was born in at the family farm.
     Phyllis is survived by her sons, Tim Kor of Worthington, MN, and Tom (Mary) Kor of Worthington; her daughter, Cheri (Paul) Matthies of Worthington; five grandchildren, Shawn Kor, Bridgit Preston, Kristin Marsh, Tanya Beseler, and Billy Kor; 11 great grandchildren, Christopher, Brianna, Patrick, Aryah, Chrissy, Abigail, Payten, Rachel, Autumn, Stella, and Claire; her brother and sister-in-law, Dean (Ruby) Pfeil of Sioux Center, IA, and her beloved dog, Duke.
     She was preceded in death by her husband, William; her parents; sister, Bethel Morse; brothers, Verne and Tom Pfeil, and her very dear friend, Gladys Zishka.
     Funeral services will be held on Wednesday, September 29, 2010, at 10:30 a.m., at the Emmanuel United Methodist Church in Worthington, MN, with Rev. Gordon J. Orde officiating. Casket bearers will be Shawn Kor, Bill Kor, Aaron Beseler, Daniel Pfeil, Derrick Pfeil, and Tim Morse. Honorary bearers will be Bridgit Preston, Kristin Marsh, and Tanya Beseler.
