Freak accident takes life of Phyllis Lindbergh

Phyllis Lindbergh, who was well known throughout the Arizona geologic community as she accompanied her husband, Paul on numerous field trips and lectures, was killed last Thursday by a falling tree while hiking.

Colleagues report she was hiking with four friends, sat down for lunch, and a ponderosa pine tree fell over and killed her instantly. She and Paul had just been with the Central Arizona Geology Club on their Flagstaff field trip the previous Saturday. 

Our deepest sympathies go out to Paul and family.

    Phyllis was such a wonderful person. I always enjoyed her when we met on the geology field trips and will have fond memories of those times. We will miss her.
