Phyllis Fogt

Phyllis Ann (Nagel) Fogt, 68, of Waukon went to be with the Lord May 19, 2014 after suffering a stroke as a result of high blood pressure. As per Phyllis' request, she has been cremated, and will have her funeral service at Christ Fellowship Church, in Royal Palm Beach, FL  with her family this June. A burial service in Waukon will be announced at a later date.
Phyllis was born June 30, 1945  in Waukon. She attended the Ludlow school as a child and graduated from Waukon High School.
She married Charles A. Fogt January 19, 1975, and they had one daughter together, Donna (Fogt) Greenberg of West Palm Beach, FL. Phyllis was also the stepmother to Charles' three children, Lila, Allen and Sharla Fogt.
In the 1970s, Phyllis worked at Deco Inc., The Winneshiek Hotel, Ruby's Cafe, and Anundsen Publishing, all of Decorah. She continually helped her parents, Dorothy (Flage) and Paul Nagel, on their dairy farm in Ludlow.
After Phyllis was married, she continued farm work and also began her own purebred Persian cat business. She would sell Persians in Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota. She attended cat shows in Rochester, MN and Wisconsin with her Persians.
For many years she cared for her mother, Dorothy Nagel, and her brother, Nathan Nagel. Nathan will now be residing in Northgate Care Center in Waukon.
Phyllis loved the outdoors and taking walks in the fields to enjoy the wildlife. She was a wonderful cook and baker.
Phyllis was a member at Bethlehem Church in the Ludlow area and  Zion United Church of Christ in Waukon. She loved to do the Lord's work and always gave whatever she could. She was a member of the Christian Coalition of America, and a supporter of Liberty University as well as the American Bible Society.
Phyllis was a woman of great faith, and tried to live out her Christian values. She loved sending cards to encourage others and let them know she was praying for them. It is a great comfort to her family to know that she is not gone, but is now at peace in Heaven with the Lord Jesus. There is no reason to mourn, for Jesus has overcome death, and in Jesus we also have victory.
Phyllis was a dearly beloved sister, mother and grandmother, and will be very missed. But we know with certainty that we will see her again in heaven and be reunited, so there is also joy and hope during this time of sadness.
Phyllis was preceded in death by her parents, Dorothy (Flage) Nagel and Paul Nagel of  Waukon. She is survived by her husband, Charles; her brother, Nathan Nagel; her daughter, Donna (Fogt) Greenberg; a son-in-law, Mitchell Greenberg; and her grandchildren, Paul, Pamela, Christopher and Christie Greenberg; and a step-granddaughter, Valerie (Greenberg) Constant, and her husband, Paul Constant, all of West Palm Beach, FL.
