Phyllis Bartenhagen, 76, entered into rest on March 22, 2012 in Stockton, California. She was a resident of Lathrop for over 55 years. She was born on May 16, 1935 in Iowa to the late Mr. and Mrs. James and Bernice Duggan. She joins her parents in heaven as well as her husband Robert Bartenhagen, her daughter Lisa Bartenhagen, and her two brothers Bill and Dick Duggan.
Phyllis is survived by her two sons Scott Bartenhagen (Jeanette) and Joel Bartenhagen. She was blessed by three grandchildren Emily Terry (Chris), Liz Bartenhagen and Scott Bartenhagen. She has two great-grandchildren Dylan and Logan. In addition Phyllis has three sisters who reside in Iowa Eileen Bennet, Jan Boche and Judy Vargus.
Mrs. Bartenhagen took great pride in being a mother and wife. She was a wonderful house keeper and some would call her the “queen of the kitchen.” She retired from American Honda in Stockton working most of her career in the warehouse parts department. She loved trips to local casinos and loved hand held slot machine games. She enjoyed lifetime TV and any crime investigation drama series. She was a simple lady who loved her family. Her grandchildren where her number one priority; she loved them unconditionally.
P.L. Fry & Son is honored to be serving the Bartenhagen family. A visitation will be held on Wednesday at 9:30 to 11 a.m. followed by a service at 11a.m. both held at P.L. Fry & Son 290 N. Union Road, Manteca. She will be laid to rest with her beloved husband at Park View Cemetery. In lieu of flowers donations can be sent to Hospice of San Joaquin 3888 Pacific Ave. Stockton, Ca.
