The former Phyllis Jane Greinert was born on November 20, 1937 in the Town of Clyman, the daughter of Herbert and Alice (Borck) Greinert. She was a 1955 graduate of Juneau High School, followed by Milwaukee Cosmetology School. Phyllis was united in marriage with Ronald Schoenwetter at Zion Lutheran Church in Clyman on June 6, 1959. She worked at the National Beauty Salon in Watertown for many years. Phyllis was a Sweetheart of the Lowell VFW and was a longtime member of the Lowell United Church of Christ, where she was involved with the ladies aid for a number of years. Phyllis had a love for nature.  She enjoyed working in her flower gardens, tending to the yard and watching the wild life that their country home had to offer. She enjoyed watching the many species of birds that she fed from her back deck.  Raising her family and enjoying the outdoors brought peace to her life.
