Phyllis Jean Booth, 75, of Wellington, died Saturday, February 8 at Elyria Medical Center. Born in Oberlin on February 27, 1944, she was the daughter of the late Lloyd and Evelyn (nee Knecht) Trigg. Phyllis was a lifelong resident of Wellington.

Phyllis enjoyed card games, reading, and working on puzzles. She was known for her green thumb and enjoyed working in her garden; for many years she and her husband would enter their produce in the Lorain County Fair and won several blue ribbons. Phyllis will be remembered for her love of her dogs. Most of all she cherished time with her family especially her grandchildren.
