Phyllis June (Wieand) Hoff Probst, 89, formerly of Camp Hill and Harrisburg, passed away on her birthday, June 11, 2021, at UPMC Harrisburg Hospital.
Phyllis was a graduate of South Whitehall High School, Lehigh County and Linden Hall Junior College, Lititz, earning the salutatorian title of both her high school and college classes. She began her career as a medical secretary at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Lancaster, prior to becoming a fulltime mother and homemaker. Phyllis took great pride in raising her five children and taking care of her home. Later, she returned to the workforce and retired as a medical secretary, first with ENT Specialist Nae Park, MD and then with the Polyclinic Speech and Hearing Clinic.
Phyllis enjoyed solving mentally challenging puzzles. A fierce competitor, whether it was Sudoku, crossword or jigsaw puzzles, a game of solitaire, bingo, or Jeopardy…Phyllis was in it to win it. She was a member of Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church where she had served as a Sunday School teacher for many years.
Phyllis was born in Guth’s Station, Lehigh County, the daughter of Paul R. and Mabel (Schraden) Wieand. Phyllis is predeceased by her parents; husband, Ralph E. Probst; and sister Kathryn Horst. She is survived by her children, R. Andrew Hoff (Mary) of Camp Hill, Christine McInnes (Charles) of Camp Hill, Matthew Hoff (Toy) of Dublin, CA, Martha Klingensmith (Kevin) of Lewisberry and Sarah Mazan (Michael) of Mechanicsburg; eight grandchildren; and four great grandchildren; her sister Isabel Koch, and her former husband Richard A. Hoff.
