Obituary: Marks, Phyllis Jean

Age 83

MARKS, Phyllis Jean

Our Beloved wife, mother and friend, Phyllis Jean Marks (Chamberlin) (Spearry), age 83, entered into rest in Spokane on May 2, 2012. Born in Wellston, Ohio on October 15, 1928, she was one of seven children.
Jean enjoyed camping, fishing, reading, crossword puzzles and being with the ones she loved.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Phillip and Hazel Spearry, her brothers, Vaughn,Phillip Jr. and Dale Spearry and sisters Lorene Horne and Kathleen Boggs. Also preceding her was her son Mark Chamberlin and Grandson, Gene Chamberlin.

She is survived by her husband of 44 years, Floyd Marks, daughter Carrie Marks, son David Chamberlin (Susan); granddaughters Breanna Tabalno and Angelique Chamberlin and great-granddaughters Nicole, Taylor and Allie Chamberlin; all of Spokane, and sister Jeloma Seevers (Robert) of Columbus, Ohio along with numerous nieces and nephews.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in her name to either Heart Clinics, N.W or to Hospice of Spokane.
A memorial service is to be announced.

“You can only have one mother
patient, kind and true;
No other friend in all the world,
will be the same to you.
When other friends forsake you,
to mother you will return,
for all her loving kindness,
she asks nothing in return.
As we look upon her picture,
sweet memories we recall,
of a face so full of sunshine,
and a smile for one and all.
Sweet Jesus, take this message,
to our dear mother up above;
tell her how we miss her,
and give her all our love.”
