Phyllis Netherland

Phyllis Netherland, 75, of Gaithersburg, MD, formerly of Beaver, Pennsylvania, died peacefully in her home on April 29, 2019.  Phyllis was a grand lady who was constantly seeking enrichment in her life.  She was a well-respected radiologic technologist by training and pursued advanced certification as a dedicated MRI technologist later in her career; she was an active member of Toast Masters; an entrepreneur and a member of the Beaver County Historical Society prior to moving to Gettysburg, PA in 2004.  Soon after that she became very active in the Adams County Arts Council; a director of the Gettysburg Arts Festival’s Fringe Festival for many years and one of the founding members of her local support group of the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation.  She took her message of educating the public about PF to the airwaves where she was interviewed twice on a local radio station in hopes of reaching those in need.  She had dear friends in many places, made new friends with a smile, loved to travel and most of all spend time with her family.  One of her friends described her this way:  A big smile on a super-pretty face and a look that says, "How wonderful to see you—nothing could make me happier!
