Phyllis Jean (Dishman) Houston, age 88, passed away December 8, 2018 at Precious Care Assisted Living in Concord Township, Ohio. She was born March 21, 1930 in Moundsville, WV the daughter of the late John and Bertha (Dalrymple) Dishman.  For nearly 60 years Phyllis was a devoted homemaker and lived in Vienna, Ohio, later moving to Concord Township in the Summer of 2015, where she took up residence at Pine Hill Country Care.  The last 3 weeks of her life were spent at Precious Care Assisted Living. Phyllis enjoyed her time at home crocheting, doing word search puzzles, cooking and especially baking.  She loved all animals, in particular birds that she fed with regularity.  For many years she gardened, producing an abundance of vegetables, that she canned for future use.  She was a member of First Baptist Church of Howland, where she worshipped, and often took day trips with other members.

She is survived by her siblings, Mary Garrison, John Dishman, Sarah Anderson West, and Ron Dishman; sister-in-law, Betty (Guthrie) Dishman; many nieces and nephews. Phyllis was preceded in death by her husband, Joseph Patrick Houston on December 8, 1995; siblings, James Dishman (Vivian), Delores Martin (Keith), Fredrick Dishman, Peg Mason (Gene), and Betty Strait (Tom); sister-in-law, Sharon Dishman; brother-in-laws, Richard Anderson and Jim West.

At her request, there will be no services.  Burial will be next to her husband in Jacksonville Cemetery, Wind Ridge, PA. The family wish to express their deepest and most sincere appreciation to the staff of Pine Hill Country Care, Precious Care and the wonderful "Angels" that are the support team from Hospice of the Western Reserve.  You all made Phyllis' time with you meaningful and full of love.  May God continue to bless you and your work.
