Phyllis and Jay Robertson Partridge were married in the Salt Lake City Temple Feb. 9, 1945. They raised five children who grew up in a home filled with gospel principles and Christ-like love.
Phyllis’ grandchildren were the light of her life and she helped them make cherished memories as they spent many summer days baking with her and playing in her beautiful yard. She loved nature and enjoyed every detail of God’s creations. She found great joy in tending to her flower gardens and they were enjoyed by all who passed her home. Her children considered her their best friend — one who exemplified tenderness and unconditional love and taught them to do the same. People were drawn to her Christ-like countenance and she brought joy and peace to all who knew her.
Phyllis was preceded in death by siblings Porter May, Virga May, Andrew May, Jerry May and Venus May.
She is survived by her husband, Jay Robertson Partridge; children Jaylene (Walter) Nielson, Ronald (Annette) Partridge, Gayle (William) Sutton, Lynn Partridge and Jill (Steve) Hansen; as well as 15 grandchildren and 27 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her twin sister, Phern, and sisters Rosemarie and Priscilla and brother, Jay.
