Phyllis Schlocker
Resident of San Mateo
1929-2011

Phyllis Schlocker, beloved Wife, Mother, Grandmother, and Great Grandmother, passed away peacefully at the age of 82 on October 28th with her family by her side. Phyllis endured a heroic battle with cancer and complications from surgery. Phyllis will be best remembered by her love for her family including her husband Leo, daughter Sandy, her deceased daughter Linda, son David, and five grandchildren, Caryn, Christopher, Keith, Amanda, Ryan, and Tyler. Phyllis was also blessed with 8 great grandchildren. Another love of Phyllis's, which she shared with her husband of 65 years, was their garden railroad hobby, called P&L Railroad. The display encompasses their entire backyard to this day. The train display includes little villages with buildings that are named after all of their grandchildren. The garden train has received accolades from friends and neighbors, and was even featured on an ABC evening news segment. Their home was always open to visitors to see the train display, and was a highlight of their San Mateo Highlands home. Phyllis was also an avid 49er fan. She really enjoyed watching the games with her family. She had her family room decorated in 49er paraphernalia, and watching the game with her was quite exciting, as she could get quite vocal when they weren't doing well. Phyllis's biggest regret in life was the loss of her oldest daughter Linda who died from cancer at the young age of only 57. It's a parent's greatest fear to lose children before their own passing. But Phyllis will now be able to join Linda and be with her where they can continue enjoying their love for each other.
