Phyllis Faye, daughter of Philip and Susan (Hutchinson) Pieper, was born October 17, 1921, on the family farm in Crawford County, Iowa. When she was six years old, her mother passed away and she went to live with her grandparents nearby. She attended country schools near her home, completing the eighth grade and continuing into high school for a short time at Deloit. Phyllis then worked in her home.

On June 15, 1941, Phyllis was united in marriage to Wilbur Lamp in Vail. Three children were born to this marriage. Phyllis and Wilbur farmed east of Manning for 35 years. In 1982, they moved into Manning.

Phyllis was a member of Zion Lutheran Church and was active in the Ladies' Guild. She was a proud homemaker and a charter member of the Friendly Neighbor Club. Throughout the years, she enjoyed dancing, sewing and drawing. Phyllis did a lot of reading. She always enjoyed cooking and baking favorite selections of her family and friends.

On Friday, November 13, 2020, Phyllis passed away at Manning Regional Healthcare Center in Manning, at the age of 99.

You won't see this view in the distance today beyond the trestle.
You can see the barn & hoghouse on the farm where Emil "Dusty," Lucille (Reimers), and Janice Ress once lived. The house is out of view to the back right.
This farm was once part of the present day AGP soybean plant property.
My dad had made the down payment for the purchase of this farm but due to his declining health problems from Diabetes he had to give up the property in 1969.
Ivan Opperman then purchased the farm and then later Consoy was constructed and today is AGP.
