Stuber, Phyllis

March 3, 1932 — June 21, 2021

Phyllis Stuber, 89, passed away on June 21, 2021 after a brief stay at the St. Luke's Hospice House in Kansas City, MO. She was born in Kansas City, KS to Lee and Ogarita Younger. Phyllis spent most of her childhood on the family farm in Albany, MO and graduated from Albany High School. Following high school, she went on to get her Licensed Practical Nurse certification from Missouri Methodist Hospital where she worked for a year. She became a private nurse for her uncle who succumbed to cancer. Next she worked at the Nichols Cancer Sanitarium, Savannah, MO for 3 years as admissions nurse, because she never met a stranger.

Phyllis found the love of her life, Paul, while working in St. Joseph and they were married June 10, 1955. Chasing his Air Force commitment, they lived in Bossier City, LA for a year until his honorable discharge and they moved back to St. Joseph. Paul got a job with TWA and they settled in Liberty, MO, where they lived for 46 years. Phyllis worked at Clay County Election Board for several years and served as a local election judge. In 1993 Paul acquired Roosterville Airport and in 2005 they moved to a home right next door where they have resided since. Phyllis had a heart to serve children; she baby sat for many friends and family, taught Sunday School and Bible School, was a Cub Scout Den Mother and Camp Fire Girls leader, and she led 4-H classes. Phyllis enjoyed gardening, arts and crafts, loved to sew and quilt, she took painting instruction from Arlene Rash and eventually was an acrylic art instructor along side her friend. The joy of her life was taking exquisite care of her husband, children, and grand children. If she had a motto it would have been “how can I help”.

She is survived by her loving husband, Paul, her children, Denise Sligar (Frank)- Kansas City, Gary Stuber (Samantha) - Excelsior Springs, brother, Bob Younger (Marilyn) of Ankeny, Iowa; delightful grand children: Hailey (Ehren) Manz-Kansas City, Kelsi Sligar-Kansas City, Tyler (Kacy) Stuber-Liberty, MO, Mikayla Stuber-Liberty, great grandsons Colton Stuber and Brayden Manz. She leaves behind many cousins, nieces and nephews.

Paul, I am so sad at your loss. As you know, it was hard losing John Webb, especially so soon after our wedding, five months to the day. Please take good care of yourself. Grief is very hard on body and soul. If I can be of comfort to you, please let me know. You are welcome to visit me also. I am sure there are people in your hangar who can take care of things for a few days.

Deborah Webb

This was a woman who never knew a stranger, loved everyone she met, and became everyone's mother, sister, aunt that anyone needed or wanted. She was an excellent Square Dancer. She will be so missed in the lives of all those who knew her. Love you Phyl.
