BOUGIE, PHYLLIS  
PHYLLIS BOUGIE Phyllis Caroline Bougie, of Henderson, passed away peacefully Dec. 7, 2014. We know that Phyllis lived a full life, including driving by herself to her hair appointment and stopping at Kentucky Fried Chicken on the way home to pick up some chicken and coleslaw just a week and a half before she passed. Sadly, a recent series of medical challenges proved to be more than her very well-used 90 year-old body could handle. She was born Feb. 16, 1924, in St. Paul, Minn., to Walter and Clara Larson. She was married to Leon George Bougie, who died prematurely after fighting cancer in 1977. Phyllis and Leon shared three sons Michael, Glenn and Jerome; three daughters-in-law, Bonnie, Robin and Brenda; five grandchildren, Jonathan, Devin, Nickolas, Karen and Brent; and two great-grandchildren, Stella and Maia. Phyllis is also survived by her sister and brother-in-law, Shirley and Bill Hampton; and their daughters, Linda and Kathy. Her greatest accomplishment in life was her family. She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother, which brought great joy to her life, and the lives she touched. She was known by close friends and family for her kindness and strength. She was loved by many and will surely be missed. Memorial services will be at 11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 17, at Green Valley Evangelical Lutheran Church, 1799 Wigwam Parkway, Henderson. A light lunch will follow. Phyllis will be interred alongside her husband Leon at Fort Snelling National Cemetery, Minneapolis, in the spring after graveside memorial services for her Minnesota friends and family. Details on the Twin Cities based service will be provided when finalized. The family requests that any donations made in Phyllis' memory be directed to either Nathan Adelson Hospice www.nah.org or National Military Family Association www.militaryfamily.org
