Kyla worked as a graduate secretary in the Linguistics Department at the University of Oregon where she enjoyed the faculty and students so much.

She loved history and traditions and could spend hours reading and studying on this subject. Kyla was known, and will always be remembered for her wonderful sense of humor, her zest for life and the love and devotion she had for her children and family.

Kyla was a very special person who was, and will continue to be, a source of pride and inspiration to her family and friends.

The family would like to acknowledge the support of their friends, caring and concerned folks at the University of Oregon, Lane County Department of A & T, the doctors, nurses and staff at the University of California at San Francisco Medical Center and Hospice of Sacred Heart.

Survivors include her children, 6-year-old Emma and 1-year-old Lucy, and her former husband, Jered of Springfield; siblings, Brian Phillips of Madrid, Spain, Jill and James Koehler of Springfield and Kelli Evans of Springfield; nephew, Byron Koehler; her parents, Dave and Vonda Fuzi Evans of Springfield and Mike and Toni Phillips of Baker City; grandparents, Mae Fuzi of Baker City, Max and Delpha Evans of Springfield, Leroy Phillips of Baker City and Mabel Dreher of Roans Prairie, Texas; and numerous very supportive and loving aunts, uncles and cousins.

Memorial contributions may be made in her name to the University of California, San Francisco, where she received such good care or to National Brain Tumor Association. Her greatest wish was to find a cure for this disease.
