1927 - 2018 Obituary Condolences
PHYLLIS VAN ALSTINE Phyllis J. Van Alstine passed away February 10, 2018, in Boulder City, at the age of 90. Phyllis was born July 5, 1927, in Cherry Valley, New York, to Alberta and Victor Yerdon. She attended Cherry Valley High School and graduated from Albany University in 1948 with a Bachelor's Degree in English. She married Earl Van Alstine March 23, 1947. She lived in New York, Massachusetts, and Colorado, before finally settling in Los Angeles, California in the late 1960's. She earned a Master's Degree in Education from Loyal Marymount University that began her long career at the Los Angeles Unified School District, first as an English teacher in the early 1970's, then as Head Councilor at John H. Francis Polytechnic High School in the late 1970's. It is where she retired as an Assistant Principal in 1992. Phyllis had many passions in life that she was able to enjoy during her retirement in Boulder City. Everything from gardening, to long drives in the desert discovering small historic museums, to collecting unique rocks from her many travels in the US, Canada, and Italy. But, first and foremost, she loved genealogy and volunteered at the Paso Verde Library Heritage Room and belonged to the DAR. She was preceded in death by her husband, Earl J. Van Alstine; and her son, Reginald K. Van Alstine. She is survived by her daughter, Karen A. Van Alstine. Funeral will be in May at the Cherry Valley, New York Cemetery, with a reception to follow at the United Methodist Church. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to The Cherry Valley Museum, 49 Main St., Cherry Valley, NY 13320.
