Phyllis Mary Mulek


Phyllis Mary Mulek, 91, of Hermantown, formerly of Morgan Park, passed away on April 24, 2021 at Edgewood Hermantown.

Phyllis was born in Duluth on November 25, 1929 to Clarence and Margaret (Flynn) Hegland. She was raised on Raleigh Street in Duluth’s west end and graduated from Denfeld High School.

Phyllis was married to Jack for 67 years and raised eight children in Morgan Park. She will be remembered as a patient, kind, and loving mother and grandmother who was very proud of her children and family. Phyllis was a very positive person who daily taught those around her to show love, to meet adversity with faith, and to grow old gracefully. She was admired by others for her strength, courage, and the ability to smile and find the good in all that life brings.

Phyllis was preceded in death by her parents, sister Peggy Teney, and her husband Jack.

Phyllis was survived by her children Patti (Jim) Blackman, Jack (Cindy) Mulek, Sandy (Steve) Brand, Kathy (Dave) Gunderson, Steve (Jodi) Mulek, Mike (Deanna) Mulek, Rick (Theresa) Mulek, and Andy Mulek; 17 grandchildren, 29 great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandson; as well as many extended family members and friends.

Arrangements are being made by the Cremation Society of Minnesota, 4100 Grand Ave. Duluth.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date with her family.

The family would like to express their appreciation to Edgewood Hermantown staff for their loving and competent care.
