Phyllis was born June 22, 1937, in Minot, ND, the daughter of Lloyd and Ella (Jacobson) Horner. She graduated from Mohall High School and the Northwestern Technology Program in Minneapolis.
She married Bruce Delzer on Aug. 31, 1958, in Ashley, ND. They resided in Ashley until moving to Bismarck in 1959.
Phyllis was a lab technician in Ashley, where she met Bruce. She became a homemaker, raising three girls before re-entering the workforce. She worked for the tax department at the State Capital and later for the Department of Public Instruction in the office of School Food Services for many years before retiring at the age of 62.
She enjoyed sewing and was an excellent seamstress, even sewing her own wedding gown and the family’s clothing. She took joy in serving at many church events, family camping trips, and loved time with her grandchildren. Numerous hours were spent supporting Bruce through his softball days.
