Phyllis was born in Bismarck to Fred and Dorothy (Doerr) Zander on May 27, 1953. She graduated from BHS in 1971 and continued her education at BJC graduating with an Associates Degree.

In May of 1977, Phyllis married her High School sweetheart, Myron Rogstad, at St. Anne’s Catholic Church in Bismarck. They moved Southeast of Bismarck and together welcomed three beautiful children.

Phyllis worked in the accounting department at Hedahl’s Inc. for 26 years where she retired from in 2018.

Phyllis was an avid gardener, baker and was incredibly creative. Her artistic talents could be seen in her numerous sewing projects, oil paintings and any other crafts she was excited to try. She loved spending time in the Arizona sunshine, playing pinochle with friends and cooking for her family. But her greatest passion was spending time with her nine grandchildren. Phyllis never missed an opportunity to attend a football or a softball game, dance recital or swim meet or any other activity her grandkids were a part of. They were her greatest joy.

Phyllis is survived by her husband, Myron Rogstad of Bismarck; children, David (Alicia) Rogstad of Bismarck; Kristy (Doug) Kasper of Rosemount MN; Casey (Katie) Rogstad of Bismarck and  her nine grandchildren: Gracie, Jett, Ava, Ellie, Elliott, Eliza, Ainsley, Anders and Alise. She is also survived by her mother-in-law, Elvira Rogstad of Bismarck, siblings, Karen (Irve) Wickham, Fred Zander Jr., Brad (Karla) Zander, Bruce Zander, Mark Zander, MaryEllen (Brad) Ereth as well as Myron’s seven siblings and her many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Fred and Dorothy Zander; sister, Susan Zander; father-in-law, Harold Rogstad and sister-in-law, Louise Rogstad,
