Phyllis E. Vogel, 87, of Manheim, died peacefully on Saturday, January 14, 2023 at Pleasant View Communities. Born in Elizabethtown, she was the daughter of the late Carson and Viola Risser Geyer.

Her interests included vegetable and flower gardening, and reading. She loved traveling and spending time at the Casinos: Hollywood, Atlantic City and Las Vegas. Her deep and abiding passion was her family; and she cherished the time she would spend with her beloved husband, children, grandchildren, and her and Al's many siblings and their families.
