PHYLLIS EUGENIA PALEN WAS RAISED AS CATHOLIC. HER PARENTS SENT HER TO PRIVATE CATHOLIC SCHOOL UNTIL SHE WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL. SHE BEGGED HER FATHER TO LET HER GO TO PUBLIC SCHOOL. SHE WENT TO PUBLIC SCHOOL AND MET, AND FELL IN LOVE WITH, THEN ELOPED WITH HARRY WILLIAM LINDERMAN, A PROTESTANT. MUCH TO HER FATHER’S DISMAY, BECAUSE HARRY WAS LUTHERAN NOT CATHOLIC.

GRANDMA PHYL WAS AN ARTIST, PIANIST, HOMEMAKER, MOTHER AND SOMETIMES EVEN FATHER. HARRY WAS ON THE ROAD A LOT. HE WAS A SALESMAN.
PHYL WAS A VERY CREATIVE, INTELLIGENT WOMAN. SHE LOVED HER FLOWERS, ANTIQUES, ART, AND MUSIC. PHYL ALWAYS WORRIED ABOUT HER WEIGHT. SHE AND HARRY LOVED TO DINE, DRINK, AND DANCE. THEY COLLECTED ANTIQUES. THEY HAD VERY EXPENSIVE TASTES.

SHE WAS BURIED AT THE FOREST PARK- LAWNDALE CEMETERY, HOUSTON, HARRIS COUNTY, TEXAS. THERE IS NO HEADSTONE FOR HER GRAVE. SHE LOVED YELLOW DAISIES, AND THAT WAS THE LAST PICTURE SHE EVER PAINTED BEFORE SHE DIED IN 1963. NEITHER HARRY OR THE DAUGHTERS COULD BRING THEMSELVES TO VISIT THE GRAVESITE, THEY SAID THAT THEY CHOSE TO REMEMBER HER WHEN SHE WAS ALIVE. source: Sally Ann Frederick Fallin Brown Tudor

Married second time to a widow, Ann Nason, who had one daughter (name unknown Nason).

Frank & Ann Nason Palen had no children together.

Frank Palen, attended a Catholic Church, there close to the River, the Cathedral of St. Raphael there on Bluff St, because that is where his Grandson, Robert Leon Palen, was ordained on 7 June 1941.

Frank Joseph & Emma Elsie (Claussen) Palen are buried beside each other in the Mount Calvary Cemetery, Dubuque, Iowa.

Frank resided in Retirement Home near Mount Calvary Cemetery up until his death, because Ann had died before him. His home at 1208 Jackson Street was sold, and the house was hers from her former marriage.

A world of thanks to LeRoy Amacher for taking the time to go and take this photo of Frank J. & Emma E. Palen’s headstone. I was soooo excited to see it for the first time!

Jean Marie (Linderman)Frederick Mancill, daughter of Phyllis “Phyl” (Palen) Linderman and Harry William Linderman. Granddaughter of Frank Joseph Palen and Emma Elsie (Claussen) Palen, also of Edward Francis Linderman and Gudrun Ivarra (Lund)Linderman of Dubuque, Iowa.
First huband LeRoy Eugene Frederick. Married 15 November 1947, Liberty, Texas. Divorced 1968. the Frederick homestead was at 1709 Cheston Drive, Jacinto City, Texas 77029.
Six children together: Joseph Lee, Phyllis Jean, Sally Ann, Karl Thomas, Patricia Marie, and Sarah Kay Frederick.
Mother was a very loving and creative woman. She taught me how to sew at 16, she made us a braided rug(I still have today), she knitted, crocheted, needlepointed, and quilted.
Second husband Louis “Honey Lou” Clifford Mancill. Married 5 December 1968, Houston, Texas. Our Mancill homestead was at 11039 Lafferty Oaks St, Houston, Texas.
My Mother and Dad made our house a home. We celebrated many a birthday, and all holidays at this home, at 11039 Lafferty Oaks St., in Houston, Texas.
He preceded her in death. No children of this union. One step son, Michieal Wayne Mancill.
She was the life of the party. She lived, she laughed and she loved. Lou called her his “satan pussycat”, and the “princess and the pea”. She was spoiled by my Dad. They spoiled each other. They were each other’s best friend. They were deeply in love.
Mother passed away at home surrounded with family that loved her. She just drifted off, and the angels came to get her. My consolation was she was not in pain, and not alone, and I was able to be there with her for her last six years of her life.
Mother just passed today, March 9, 2012, in Rosharon, Texas. She left us peacefully to be with Jesus. I am so grateful to have been able to spend the last six years living together with Mother. We got to be even closer than ever.
She was blessed with a good life, and a good family. She really was always there with all of us six children, up until the last week of her life. She fell on Monday, and we think she had a mini stroke, she never was able to speak clearly after that. She passed away on Friday afternoon, in her sleep.
Mother left us just like she wanted to. She had dignity and respect from all who knew her. Everyone who knew her loved her. She was a very giving person, and always was there for her six children. Our family was a very loving, close-knit family.
Burial followed at the same Oaklawn Cemetery, where Aunt Yvonne Linderman (Levesque), Uncle Kenneth Jackson, and Aunt Yvarra “Billie” Linderman (Jackson) are buried.
Mother’s viewing was held on Monday, March 12, 2012 from 4-9pm. The funeral services were on Tuesday, March 13, 2012 @11am @ Oaklawn Cemetery Pavilion, on Hwy. 36 in Somerville, TX. location at:, Strickland Funeral Home at 545 8th Street, SOMERVILLE, TEXAS 77879, (979)596-2133.Family links:
