Phyllis Ann Herr, 78, of Twin Falls, Idaho, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family and friends June 1, 2021.

She was born October 3, 1942 in Twin Falls, Idaho to Phillip and Juanita Brennen. She grew up in Filer, Idaho. In 1944 the family welcomed her brother; Walt and their family was complete. Phyllis attended school in Filer where she met and remained friends with Midge and Carolyn for 70 years, their friendship was one of many highlights of Phyllis’ life. It wasn’t very often that they weren’t mentioned during a conversation. She graduated in 1960 and went on to study at Idaho State University in Pocatello, Idaho.

Phyllis met LeRoy Herr in 1964, they married in August of 1967 in Twin Falls, Idaho where they lived briefly before they made a long move to Syracuse, New York. While in Syracuse they welcomed their son, Charlie in 1971. After living through a couple harsh winters, they made the decision to pack up and move back to Idaho. In 1972, they welcomed their son, Rusty to the family. Phyllis and LeRoy later divorced.

Phyllis spent at least 20 years working for Kmart as a retail clerk. She cherished the memories and friendships she made until her retirement in 2008. While working at Kmart she enrolled in the Certified Nurse’s Assistant program at the College of Southern Idaho. Upon graduation, Phyllis also worked as a CNA at a care facility in Kimberly, Idaho. In 2009, she decided to join the team part time at Dollar Tree in Twin Falls. In the last 12 years she made many valuable friendships through her fellow employees as well as many of her customers.

Often times when Phyllis wasn’t at work, she could be found outside with her flowers; creating new flower beds, weeding and watering. It was the outdoors that brought mom the greatest joy. She loved to watch the birds nesting in the trees outside her window, the playful squirrels that loved to torment her and the beautiful creations along the way. If she wasn’t outside, she could be found doing projects around the house or watching some kind of sports on TV, or rather napping to the monotone sound of the sports commentators.

Phyllis is survived by her sons Charlie (Becky) of Kimberly, ID, Rusty (Jenn) of Milwaukee, WI, Granddaughter Mindy (Jake) Anderson of Fort Belvoir, VA, Grandson Tristan Herr of Milwaukee, WI, Granddaughter Kelsey Johnson (Robert Negri) of Buhl, ID, Granddaughter Kaitlyn Dauer of Sleepy Eye, MN; Great Grandchildren Travin, Varyn, Hailyn, Raiden, Kanyon and Killian all of Virginia, Uncles Paul and Ray Crawford of Idaho, her two best friends Midge and Carolyn and many cousins and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents Phillip and Juanita Brennen and her brother Walt “Butch” Brennen along with many aunts, uncles and cousins.

We would like to thank Visions Home Health and Hospice for their love and kindness to our mom in the short time she was in our home.

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Whites-Reynolds Funeral Chapel. There will be a viewing held at White- Reynolds Funeral Chapel on June 6, 2021 from 5:00 PM- 7:00 PM. A service will be held June 7, 2021 at 11:00 AM at Whites-Reynolds Funeral Chapel in Twin Falls, ID with Pastor Paul Jordan presiding. Burial will follow at the Filer Cemetery in Filer, Idaho.

To Phyllis' Family,
I was part of Phyllis' early life when Phil and Juanita, Phyllis and Butch lived on the Maroa School grounds near Filer, ID. Phil was my bus driver and janitor at the school after he got out of the Army. Juanita was my Aunt. We were involved in many family activities.
I moved away from Twin Falls for college and jobs but always remember her as a very good friend and a lovely person.
