Phyllis Ann was born March 24, 1929, the daughter of Phillip and Clara (Gebel) Sabelka.  She attended country school west of the family home in rural Lawler.  On April 15, 1947 she was united in marriage to Frank Vsetecka at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Jerico.  The couple made their home on a nearby farm that Frank had purchased a few years earlier.  Together, they farmed side by side and welcomed their seven children, Larry, Diane, Leon, Karen, Keith, Rick and Dave.  In 1981, Phyllis and Frank retired from farming, however, remained on their farm the rest of their days.  
Phyllis enjoyed gardening, canning, raising chickens and caring for her lawn with her John Deere.   Weekends were often spent dancing at the Starlight Ballroom or the Inwood in Spillville or playing cards with friends and family.  She and Frank enjoyed traveling to Florida and bus trips to casinos.  Phyllis was an active member of Holy Trinity Catholic Church. 
Those left to cherish Phyllis’ memory are her children; Leon (Barb) Vsetecka of Ft. Atkinson; Karen (Dan Knop) of Ida Grove; Keith Vsetecka of Lawler, Rick (Shawn) Vsetecka of Jerico; and Dave (Robyn) Vsetecka of Lawler; her 14 grandchildren; 16 great grandchildren; brother-in-law,  Alvin (Patricia) Vsetecka of Lawler and several nieces and nephews.
