So sorry to hear of phyllis' passing. She was a generous and loving person. We met at the FTC. She generously hosted not one but 2 baby showers for me (my eldest son and then 4 years later for my twins) I travelled to England with her, my daughter (who was 11 at the time) and friends. We enjoyed many get togethers in our red hat society group. Sorry we had not had an opportunity to get together in the last few years.

Phyllis was a colleague and an inspiration, and I learned a lot from her. She was a woman of strong opinions, and even when I did not agree with her, I respected how well-argued and sincerely held her opinions were. She was a wonderful dinner conversationalist, and since meeting here in 1990 I enjoyed many meals and happy hours with her. She was the first person to visit me in the hospital when my daughter was born, and ten years after that my daughter and I joined her in London for a vacation - it was wonderful for my daughter to see a familiar face in another country and to learn, by Phyllis’s example, that women could go off on traveling adventures by themselves. Although she lived to a very rip old age, and lived her life well, I always thought we’d have more time with Phyllis, given that her mother lived well past 100. I view this as Phyllis’s final lesson to me - do not take time for granted. May she Rest In Peace. Her memory surely will be a blessing to me and to many.
