Others have rightly lauded her devotion to Jewish family history
and genealogy, and her efforts to help on many levels. Phyllis
truly set a high mark and left a legacy that we might all try
to emulate in one way or another, to the best of our ability.
On a personal level, I have been a witness to Phyllis' passion,
intelligence and bottomless commitment for and to the Jewish
genealogical world, serving with her on an advisory board, working

JRI-Poland town leader. I will miss the sparkle in her eyes and
those warm hugs at the annual conferences.
May the memory of Phyllis be for a blessing.
