It was a great honor for our family to come to know and love Aunt Phil. She treated us like family and we enjoyed getting to know her. She had a fabulous fun loving personality and was extremely thoughtful. We remember her daily when we use our towels (funny story), smell her lotions from Mexico (our favorite brand was bought at her timeshare and she graciously shipped them from her travels to us!), her aromatherapy scents (she had secrets for muscle aches) and even special cooking vanilla that she insisted would taste better (it did!). Thank you for your generosity Aunt Phil, you will be forever in our hearts. Xoxo.

I am deeply saddened to learn of Phyllis' passing. I first met her at Norwich in the seventies and reconnected with her through the Norwich Club in Washington, DC. Her sharp mind, keen wit and sense of humor always stood out when we were together. She will be greatly missed.

Fondly remember Phyllis. Norwich Classmates and later a big fan of my music, enjoyed sharing an occasional meal when I worked in Alexandria. She loved our school. Miss her laugh, kindness, and her wonderful personality.

To know her, was to love her.  It was impossible to do one without the other. Kind, compassionate, full of life, with a personality bigger than the whole outdoors; are but a few of the words that I would use to describe her. Our friendship went back to Norwich and the 70s. Rekindled all the stronger after Bridgett told me that she lived but a few miles from us. Thank you Bridgett, thank you..
I was thrilled back in 05 when she asked me to be her date for her 30th reunion. We contacted Norwich and told the school that ‘Corvette Katy’ was coming home. The school opened the South Gate and allowed us to Drive the Vette right up to the steps of Jackman Hall... Cars on the Upper Parade had not been allowed for years.  What a day for her, she so loved our school and all of us who where there with her. Norwich gave her the royal treatment.  Well Deserved, well deserved!
I miss her terribly, it is impossible to comprehend her passing. Too soon, way too soon.

I miss Phyllis something Fierce. We've been friends since the days of Norwich. Always there for all of us! We had plans for time together once she retired guess that will be on the other side now. 
Will remember fondly the times the 3 of us crammed into the vet, maybe because I got the center. Missing her mon too.

Phyllis and the Manatees

Shared by Judy Gallagher on February 11, 2019

Phyllis was an avid scuba diver and she loved Manatees. She persuaded 3 of us to accompany her to Florida so that we could dive with the Manatees.  (This was before laws prohibiting this were enacted.)

We left Orlando before dawn for the two hour drive to Crystal River, loaded our gear and ourselves in a small jon boat, and motored to the location where we were supposed to be able to see Manatees.  It was overcast and cold; it was challenging getting in and out of the boat; there were no Manatees to be seen and Phyllis was ridiculously cheerful and kept bumping into me.  By this time I was wishing I had stayed home.  When I was bumped one final time, I turned around to give Phyllis a piece of my mind.  To my surprise, it was a Manatee bumping me.  Phyllis laughed so hard.  

Phyllis and I worked at the Norwich radio station (WNUB) together

Shared by Eric Krum on February 11, 2019

Met Phyllis when she joined Norwich's radio station; WNUB.  Being Phyllis, she quickly rose to become the WNUB News Director.  Each week the station staff would meet in my room in Alumni Hall as the dorm was being rebuilt one floor at a time with the other floors being rented out to visitors, to include females.

Phyllis being the only female station officer, attended the meeting with the other 7 officers.  One day it was reported that there was a girl in my room.  Which was true, there were also 7 guys with her.  A board was convened and I was found guilty of having a female in my room and suspended for six months.  Phyllis was very upset that she was to blame for my suspension.  Turns out the board was ordered to find me guilty so the school President tossed out the conviction.  Spent the next 43 years teasing Phyllis about getting me in trouble.

Phyllis was a brides maid at my wedding to Paula and the three of us have remained great friends ever since.  Every couple months Paula and I would meet Phyllis at Toby's Dinner Theater for a show and some time together.  Phyllis would stop by and stay the night at our house in North East, MD when she would drive by on her way back from CT.  We will miss her loving attitude and laugh!!!!!!!.
