Anchorage resident Phyllis A. Ramirez, 71, died of complications due to a brain tumor at Providence Extended Care on Aug. 2, 2010.

A service will be at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 13, at St. Anthony's Church. She will be laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.

Phyllis was born June 13, 1939, in Swords Creek, Va. Shortly after, the family moved to West Virginia, where she attended elementary through high school.

While working in Washington, D.C., Phyllis met and fell in love with her husband of over 47 years, and they began their beautiful journey through life together. Through the military they were stationed in Germany for four years, transferred to assignments in Maryland, Virginia and ending in Alaska, where they have spent the last 38 years of their lives together raising a family and enjoying all that Alaska has to offer.

She had a Bachelor of Arts degree in business administration with a minor in accounting from Wayland Baptist University. She became a resident of Alaska in October of 1972. From 1975-1995 she worked as an accountant for the Alyeska Pipeline Service Co. She retired after 20 years of service and continued to work in an administrative capacity at Alaska Regional Hospital for Dr. Rei and Dr. Muffoletto from 1998-2008.

Her family wrote, "Phyllis's greatest passion was her family, friends, being very involved with the Catholic Church, including as a Eucharistic minister with St. Anthony's and living life to the fullest. She could make your heart smile with her beautiful blue eyes and infectious hugs. She will be greatly missed by her family, friends, and all who came to know her."

Phyllis was affiliated with St. Anthony's Church. Her hobbies included gardening, reading, sewing, ceramics, traveling and spending time with family and friends.

Survivors include her husband of 47 years, Cipriano Ramirez; sons, William Reed and Anthony Ramirez; daughters, Monica Bryan and Veronica Schwanke; daughters-in-law, Kathy Reed and Kristen Ramirez; sons-in-law, Jay Bryan and Jim Schwanke; grandchildren, Timmy, Tommy, Anna Mae, Holli, Carter, Cody and Jason; sisters, Shelby, Mary, Peggy, Betty and Sue; brothers, L.C., Johnny, Billy and Jamie; brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunts, uncles, and many nieces and nephews.
