Joan Marie Mynhier, 93, of rural Pleasant Lake, Indiana, died Tuesday, May 11, 2021, at her residence where she lived from birth until death.

She was born January 26, 1928, at the family home to Claude and Delsie (Meek) Phillips.

On February 21, 1948, in Angola, she married Harold J. “Stub” Mynhier. He preceded her in death on December 13, 2004.

Mrs. Mynhier was a homemaker. She was a member of the Salem Center Presbyterian Church.

Joan enjoyed sewing, knitting, crocheting, working in her garden, and cooking. She made the best peanut brittle every year for Christmas for friends and family. When her parents and two sons’ health declined, she was there to take care of them. And, she dearly loved her church.

She was also preceded in death by two sons, Jerry Mynhier in 2005 and Eric Mynhier in 1990; a sister, Arlene Wisel; and two brothers, Ned Phillips and Burdette Phillips.
