Phyllis Ann Shinault
Phyllis Ann (Carle) Shinault, 90, formerly of E. Main Street in Kingsville passed away late Sunday, May 9, 2021 at the Villa at the Lake in Conneaut.
She was born December 13, 1930 in Youngstown, the daughter of the late Myron C. and Bernadine (Haring) Carle, and grew up in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
She was a 1949 graduate of Kalamazoo High School. After the family moved back to Ohio in the early 1950s, she met her husband James W. Shinault and they married in April, 1955.
Before moving to Ohio, Phyllis worked for the Upjohn Company in Kalamazoo. She worked as a bookkeeper for the Huey Coal Company in Kingsville, and in the offices of the Carlisle Company in Ashtabula. After her children were older, she had a number of jobs including the Kingsville Telephone Company in Kingsville, Edward Jones in Kingsville, The Ashtabula Mall in Ashtabula, and helping with children at The Speech, Hearing and Rehabilitation Center in Ashtabula.
Phyllis was active in the Kingsville Presbyterian Church and a longtime member of the church choir, frequently making homemade soups and treats for church functions. She was a member of the Orion Chapter #12 Order of Eastern Star, and the Red Hat Society.
She enjoyed league bowling with friends, camping, Pinochle Club, Yahtzee with family, and watching baseball (especially Kingsville Little League). She loved helping others. She had a happy, playful personality and always saw the good side of life and people.
She is survived by her son Scott (Stacy) Shinault of Portland, Oregon; stepson James Shinault of Olympia, Washington; sister Sharon (Bruce) Brockett of Deerfield; son-in-law Thomas Adang of Kingsville; and seven grandchildren.
