Phyllis Olson made her mother a gooseberry pie every year for her birthday.
Born and raised in Jasper County, Phyllis has made a happy life in Newton with her husband, Val. From the age of 18, Phyllis worked in engineering at Maytag, and after 37 years of work, she retired from there in 1996.
“They were wonderful people to work for and with,” she said about her experience at Maytag.
