Phyllis would post on our behalf each weekday, so each of our newsletter articles appeared on our Facebook page at some point during the two-week period between emailed editions. She knew how to convert them from long text versions to attractive social media posts. Through her skill, we gained a lot of new Facebook friends.

Pints & Politics will not be the same without her. Phyllis faithfully attended the networking events until her health started to interfere. She never spoke of her illness, just quietly stayed away. We will miss her.

Fittingly, her close friends posted a notice of her passing on Facebook.

Phyllis E. Fleischauer (78) passed away peacefully after leading a full life helping others on their life’s journey. She was a loving, fun and faithful friend. Phyllis was passionate about helping people to think and live positively and embrace the goodness in the world. She always loved music and theatre.

Phyllis grew up in LeSueur, MN, received a BA degree at Morningside University and a Masters in Communications from the University of Denver. She took piano lessons and also played the autoharp. She sang in the Twin Cities Show Chorus of Sweet Adelines and cofounded and sang with The Noteables, a mixed voice choir in LeSueur.

Phyllis lived in Boston for a short time and then returned to Minneapolis where she worked in Audiovisual at Methodist Hospital, and then with United Healthcare in Communications. She was a member of the Edina Chamber of Commerce.

Phyllis founded IN-EX Mindfulness Communications, conducted seminars called “the Mindscape Solution”, and self-published “The ABC’s of Mindfulness Workbook”
