Phyllis (Ochoa) Biberos was born August 23, 1922, in Salina Kansas, to Margarito and Petra Ochoa. Phyllis was the oldest of 12 children. Her family lived in the Huntley, Wyoming area during her youth. In 1940, her father bought 160 acres of farmland near Broadwater, where her parents lived until their death. Phyllis attended school in Broadwater and graduated high school in 1942. She taught country school for 2 years, then met and married Joe Biberos on February 10, 1946. They made their home in Bridgeport.

Phyllis worked at the Sioux Army Ordinance Depot at Sidney for 2 years, then worked as a telephone operator in Bridgeport for 16 years. Phyllis was well known for her sewing and quilting expertise and decided to open her own shop in 1972. She owned and operated the successful "Fabric Center" in Bridgeport for 34 years. She and her husband also owned and operated "Joe's Upholstery" shop which they ran from their home. Phyllis retired and sold her business to care for her husband when his health declined.

She was very active in her church and the Ladies Altar Society. She was also a member of the Red Hat Ladies Club. Phyllis loved to garden and could often be found there in the evenings. She canned vegetables and fruits for the winter. Phyllis also loved to cook and was known for her Mexican food and large holiday meals. Joe and Phyllis were foster parents to many children and always had an active life. She loved to be surrounded by her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.

She will be sadly missed by her children, Josephine and Martin Garneaux of Rosebud, South Dakota, Raymond and Louise Biberos of Scottsbluff, Jim and Lisa Biberos of Atlanta, Georgia, Sandy Matthews of Omaha, and Tim Biberos of Bridgeport; 4 sisters, Patsy, Pauline, Julia and Inez; 2 brothers, Jessie and Joe; 5 grandchildren, Joseph and Jason Stichka, Joseph and Andrew Biberos and Jennifer Wondercheck; 13 great-grandchildren; 6 great-great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.

My sincerest sympathy to the family. I remember Phyllis quite well as she & Joe were our neighbors all my childhood years. She in fact babysat me many times. I even remember when they brought Josephine home.
I hope the family finds comfort with all friends and relatives.
