Phyllis J. Will

Phyllis J. “Cookie” Will, passed away at the age of 90 on March 23, 2020 at Luther Acres, Lititz, PA. Born in Emmaus, PA, she was the daughter of the late Fred and Edna Kline.

Cookie grew up in Lancaster and was a 1947 graduate of McCaskey High School. She retired from ATandT after a career of over 35 years with the company. In her retirement she volunteered with Meals on Wheels, Habitat for Humanity, and St. Matthew Evangelical Lutheran Church where she was a member. She was very compassionate and willing to help wherever needed.

Cookie was a wonderful homemaker and cook. She took much pride in feeding and entertaining family and friends. She was also an avid quilter who shared her handiwork with family, friends, and good causes. In her later years she took up knitting. The washcloths she knitted were donated and sold to benefit her Luthercare's children's programs.

She is survived by her daughters, Linda Kauffman, wife of E.S. Kauffman of Ephrata and Patricia W. Steinman, wife of Jerry Steinman of Lancaster; grandchildren, William Kauffman, Lora Kauffman, Eric Steinman and Sara Steinman and 6 great grandchildren. All agree that she was the best mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother in the world. She was preceded in death by a son, Richard Will, Jr.

The family would like to thank all of the caregivers at Luther Acres who provided loving care to Cookie during her time with them.

Due to the current Covid 19 health concerns services will be held at a later date.

If desired, memorial contributions can be made to the Alzheimer's Association, Greater PA Chapter, 1100 Liberty Avenue, Suite e-201, Pittsburgh, PA 15222 or the Luthercare Benevolent Fund, Office for Philanthropy at Luthercare, 600 East Main Street, Lititz, PA 17543.

Linda and Pat:
I was saddened to learn of your mother's passing. I knew your mother "Mrs. Will" for a relatively brief period of time back in the very early 1970's. She was always pleasant, interested, and fun to be around and I always felt welcome being in her home.
I too lost my mother during the past year. Although I knew the inevitability of the outcome of her disease, when she finally passed away I found the finality of her death difficult to accept. The many memories of her in life was a great comfort. It sounds as though you and your respective families are blessed with many wonderful memories of your mother. And, I am certain as the weeks go on you all will begin to remember many more.
My sympathy to you and your families. As I think back to those days when I knew your mother I remember her, and you, with great fondness.
Warmest regards,
Ben Kulp
