Phyllis Jean "Toots" Case Life story video
Phyllis J. "Toots" Case, 88, of Akron, passed away on September 26, 2022 at her home. A lifelong resident of Akron, she was born on August 30, 1934 to the late Selma {Mohlmaster} and Louis Zook.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her sons William L. Vaughn and Cecil H. Vaughn, siblings Mary Lou Radcliff, Mick Zook, Dorothy Zook and Bob Zook, sisters-in-law Bev Zook and Cathy Zook, granddaughter Clarissa R. Vaughn, nephew Jimmy and friends Chuck Weatherford and Jay Cook.

She will be dearly missed by her daughters Kathy Engle and Sandy Long; grandchildren Dennis (Christy) Royer, Lisa Fullen, Richard (Stacy) Davis, Laura Selman, Felicia Vaughn, Christina Sparks, Matt (Amanda) Burrows, John (Tamara) Burrows, Jathan Vaughn, Nathaniel Vaughn and Ashley Vaughn; great-grandchildren Michael, Dennis III, Randy, Hailee, Skyler, Jacob, Heaven, Gage, Casey, Quinten, Nickolas, Clayton, Keegan, Aliea, Johnny II, Jacob, Heather, Kyla, Normy, Abby, Hazel and Melody; great-great-grandchild Jerimiah; sisters Vera Berger and Betty Berger; brother Charles Zook; nieces Bertie, Ruth Ann, Robin, Robbie, Becky, Carol, Sally, Bunny and Lee; nephews Carl, Pete, and Jeff; and many more extended family members.

Phyllis was an ornery, strong-willed, outspoken woman of faith. Small but mighty, she was force of nature. Phyllis always had a thought for others before herself, and her family came above all else. Her fighting spirit carried her through her battle with illness, and even her care staff admired her strength. She read her Bible daily, writing reflections for her prayer box. Phyllis was the glue of her family, the argument mediator, and the perspective her loved ones needed, from time to time. She was loved dearly by her family, for her lessons, her fierceness, and her ability to love and forgive, no matter what.

All are welcome to visit at Newcomer Funeral Home, 131 N. Canton Rd. Akron, OH 44305 on Saturday, October 1 from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m., when the funeral service will begin. Following services, Phyllis will be cremated. To leave a message for Phyllis' family, please scroll below.
