Phyllis Anderson Dolin

March 4, 1923 - September 3, 2015

Phyllis Anderson Dolin, 92 passed away September 3, 2015.  Born in Uintah on March 4, 1923, to Norman and Gretta Kendall Anderson, she had three siblings and graduated from Weber High School in 1941.


During World War II she worked at Hill Air Force Base.  She moved to Los Angeles to attend art school, and also worked at a florist shop in Hollywood, CA.   Returning to Uintah, she served an LDS mission to Southern CA and later worked for the LDS Genealogical Society, where she met Christian Dolin.


They were married in the Salt Lake Temple and later divorced.  While married, she traveled aboard the Queen Elizabeth to see Germany, France, and Switzerland.


Phyllis graduated from Weber State College with a bachelor’s degree in education.  She taught for 19 years at Club Heights Elementary School in South Ogden.  After raising the children alone and retiring, she finally had more time to enjoy her interests:  gardening and arranging flowers, oil painting, bargain shopping and traveling. She loved being a grandmother, teaching art to her grandchildren and doing things with them.


Phyllis is survived by her daughters, Patrice (Steve) Moore, Leslie Padgett; son, Paul Dolin; grandchildren, Laurie (Ben) Elmore, Jason (Shannon) Christian, Robert (Amanda) Moore, Stacey (Nicholas) Bluth, Braden (Cheri) Moore, Kell (Nadia), Alec, Tessa (Devin), and Ryker Padgett; and 24 great-grandchildren.


She is preceded in death by her parents and siblings, Inez Fife, Carl N. and Wendell K. Anderson.

I taught with Mrs. Dolin at Club Heights in the late 1960-through the 1970. Great person and knew so much about art and local history. My best wishes to her children. We took a trip to San Francisco with my son one fall.

Mrs. Dolin was my third grade teacher - she truly was one of my favorites. I vividly remember her showing us how to "mime" - she was stuck in a box. She was a wonderful teacher that helped me learn to love reading & history. I am sorry to hear of her passing, she had a lasting impact on my life.

I'm so sorry to hear about Aunt Phil - and I'm sorry you guys didn't have any way to contact me. I would have been there. Aunt Phil was one of my favorite people, I'm sorry I didn't get to see her more often.

I am so sorry, Patrice. Having lost my Mom, I know how hard it is, even if you know she's at peace. My prayers are for you and your family. Love, Lili
