Phyllis Krohe Obituary

Phyllis Geraldine Krohe of Lorain, Ohio passed away on February 26, 2024 after a brief illness.

Phyllis was born on January 16, 1945 in West Virginia.

She moved to Ohio in her early 20’s and became an x-ray technician, spending her entire career in the medical field, working in hospitals and clinics in Lorain County. She retired in 2007.

Phyllis met her future husband, John G. Krohe, at work and was married in 1966. She and John were married for 33 years until his death in 1999.

Phyllis and John had two children. Joyce (Jenny), born in 1971 (married to Jeff White) and John Thomas (JT) born in 1974 (married to Alison Edie).

Phyllis enjoyed seeing her two grandchildren (Natalie and Jonathan) become successful adults and never shied away from offering the kids advice in her one-of-a-kind, unique way.

Phyllis enjoyed her retirement by doing crossword puzzles, gardening, cooking, and shopping on QVC, often buying items that made her family laugh out loud. Her biggest enjoyment in retirement was spending time with her loyal crew of friends, Nancy, Barb, Flo and more. They were affectionately known as the Casino Squad - striking fear to casinos throughout the Midwest.

A 10-pound dog named Carly was Phyllis’s most loyal companion over the last 15 years. Carly will be reuniting with Phyllis soon…but not quite ready yet.

A celebration of life party will be held in Phyllis’s honor for close friends and family.
