of Chelsea, Michigan formerly of Ann Arbor, age 89, died Sunday, June 5, 2022 at Chelsea Retirement Community.  She was born August 27, 1932 in Chelsea, Michigan, the daughter of John J. and Georgia (Russel) Munro. On July 26, 1952, she   married Wayne Alber in Ann Arbor.  He preceded her in death on August 13, 1988.  She is survived by her son Dan (Lynda) Alber of Manchester, daughters Linda (Steve Hoelscher) Bennink of Battle Creek, Diane (Tom) Boozer of Rockford and Betsy (Jeff) Fisher of Sarasota, FL; 8 grandchildren; and 14 great-grandchildren.

After raising her children, Phyllis worked for 25 years as the “smiling face” of an Ann Arbor dentist office and then moved to Homosassa, Florida where she spent 16 years enjoying warmer weather near  many friends.  In 2010 she moved back to the Ann Arbor area to be close to her children and grandchildren.

Phyllis was always positive and she appreciated all things in life.  She was a terrific conversationalist and had a way of making everyone feel special.  In 2017 she moved to the Chelsea Retirement Community Kresge Facility.  Her family is very grateful for the wonderful care that she received there.

No public services will be held.  Memorial contributions may be made to the Life Enrichment program at Chelsea Retirement Community.
