Phyllis J. Crum

She was born on March 28, 1928, the daughter of the late Henry and Ruby (Teegarden) Swift in Franklin County. She grew up in the countryside of Franklin County and was a graduate of Brookville High School.

After school she met Gene Crum and they were married on July 7, 1959. Upon their marriage, she moved to the Delaware community becoming a part of the legacy of Crum Farms. Early on she worked as a beautician, but can most be remembered working in the principal’s office of Milan Elementary School for over 30 years where she helped countless kids that struggled.

She was a dedicated member of Adams Lutheran Church for many years and served in various capacities. Phyllis enjoyed her family and neighbors throughout the years. She liked to watch her favorite TV shows American Pickers and found laughter in staying up and taking in the Jimmy Kimmel show. Gene and Phyllis enjoyed traveling to numerous locations over the years. Around the farm she grew various flowers, and even if they were struggling was always sure to make someone water them when she was gone!

Phyllis was preceded in death by husband Gene and daughter-in-law Melissa. She is survived by son Alan of Sunman and daughter Lori of Ashland, Ohio, sister Nelda of Brookville, along with six grandchildren.

The two of them provided an environment for their children based on true values and honesty.

Ruth Ann was dedicated to being a homemaker for the vast majority of her life. She did spend 10 years working for the Jac-Cen-Del school system in the cafeteria. She enjoyed spending time with her family, whether it was a good card game or a social gathering. She had the great ability to start a conversation with anyone passing by.
