Phyllis Irene Lundvall passed away on Oct. 12, 2021, at the Powell Valley Care Center. 

Phyllis was born on Jan. 5, 1924, in Cody, to Edwin and Ada Fertig Ballinger. She grew up on the South Fork and graduated from Cody High School in 1941. She married Lawrence Lundvall on May 22, 1941, in Basin, Wyoming. They celebrated 71 years together. 

They ranched on Monument Hill, farmed in Powell and owned the A&W in Worland. In retirement, they enjoyed traveling and following the Wyoming Cowboys. They were snowbirds for many years and then settled in Leesburg, Florida. 

She was on the committee to make Brittany Estates Mobile Home Park a resident-owned park and served on the board for many years. She loved to play bridge and was proud when she earned her life master in contract bridge. She liked to play the piano, grow flowers and watch sports on television, especially tennis. 

She is survived by her son Larry Lundvall (Jane); daughter Bonnie Earhart (Neil); and six grandchildren: Tammy Perkins, Tod Earhart (Karen), Toni Rardin (Rich), Greg Lundvall, Sheri Smith, and JJ Lundvall (Jamie). She is also survived by 15 great-grandchildren: Dakin and Keyan Lundvall; Derek, Nathan, Trey and Cameron Smith; Josee and Alex Lundvall; Bonny Perkins (Beau); Katy Kavanaugh (Ty); Kole and Kylie Earhart; and Colin, Carson and Brody Rardin. Additionally, she is survived by two great-great-grandsons, Ivan and Holden Perkins. 

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, sister Helen Franklin, and brothers, Lee, Carl, and Gene Ballinger. 

A celebration of Phyllis’s life will be held in the summer. 

The family would like to thank all the staff at the PVHC Care Center, who so lovingly took care of Phyllis, as well as Dr. Bohlman.
