Our Sympathy. We live on the corner of Stevenson and Old Court - the one that faces the corner.
When we moved into the house - Michael's parents built the house and lived there until we moved in -
our daughter Jenny was seven and Stuart always invited her over to play with Maggie after school.
Phyllis was always so sweet and we loved visiting with both of them "over the driveway." They were both so proud of their Molly. You are all in our thoughts and in our prayers.

Dear Jodi, Michael & Stephanie, Lee & Arlene,
I was very sorry to learn of Phyllis’s passing. There are fewer of us first cousins left & sadly the next generation don’t really know each other. My thoughts & prayers are with you all.

Phyllis hired me in 1984 as the first admin asst for the Baltimore Jewish Council. The first person of color and she mentored me through the Stanley Sollins years and my years with her and Darrell Friedman. She mentored me when I returned in 1995. She taught me everything I didn't know about work ethic and how to be the best at what I do. I have always said she was MY mentor and she will always be remembered with love and admiration. My deepest condolences to everyone who knew her.

While I was an active member of the Baltimore Jewish Council, it was Phyllis’ remarkable nature, always kind, strong and with a gentle touch of fine common sense and good spirited humor that enabled us to do and be our best. Her memory continues to be a blessing!

So very sorry to hear about Phyllis. I always enjoyed working with her. I enjoyed her way of looking at things and her sense of humor and overall wonderful approach to life. She was a very special woman. May her life be for a blessing.

I am sorry to hear this news. I worked with Phyllis in the 80’s at the Baltimore Jewish Council under Stanley Sollins. Our staff was like a family with Phyllis definitely playing the role of “mom” with her warm and even temperament and good humor that kept us all sane. I have nothing but the fondest memories of Phyllis and when did speak over the years we always ended up laughing. My condolences to your family.

Jodi and Michael - So sorry to hear of the passing of your Mom. On a positive note, I suspect your mom and dad are enjoying quiet time with my mom and dad.

I have the pleasure and privilege of working with Phyllis both at The Associated and at the Weinberg Foundation, where she helped launch the Maryland Small Grants Program. I have so many memories of lunches with Phyllis and Darlene, of Phyllis writing in her perfect cursive handwriting on her colored, lined, notecards, and of her commitment to excellence in everything. She was a beloved friend and I will miss her. Sending Jodi, Molly, and all of you strength and love and condolences. May her memory forever be a blessing.
