I’m so saddened by the loss of my dear friend, Phyllis. Where has time gone? It was just yesterday that we bid her a new beginning when she retired from IBM. My IBM memories of PRW are countless – leading, coaching, being compassionate, always having fun. My most treasured memory – one late evening in February 1994, PRW walked me to my car, trying to insist to drive me home in an ice/snow storm. I didn’t let her that night, by morning my son was born. She reminded me of that night last time I spoke to her. I know she is watching over her family and loved ones. Miss and love that Lady!

Phyllis was a manager in my organization in IBM in the early 1990s. She was not only a true professional and highly skilled but everyone loved working with her. She had an infectious enthusiasm and smile that rubbed off on everyone. I remember that she always played an active role in planning our all employee meetings and often came up with great ideas for skits and other motivational things we could include on the agenda. I considered her not only an IBM colleague, but also a friend and we remained in touch even after she retired from IBM. Every year, we shared Rosh Hashana wishes for a healthy, happy new year. I last heard from her in January with condolences after my mother had passed away – I can’t believe I am writing condolences now on losing Phyllis. She was one of the best and she will be greatly missed. Sincere condolences to Phyllis’ entire family – may beautiful memories comfort you at this difficult time.

I am very saddened to hear of Phyllis’ passing. I worked with her for many years at IBM. I always looked at her as a friend. When I think of Phyllis, the first thing that always comes to mind are the many organization meetings that she coordinated, from the detail oriented agenda, to the guest speakers, to the entertainment. I always wondered how she ever came up with some of those entertainment ideas. A group of us traveled together to North Carolina for a business event. I was fortunate to be seated next to Phyllis on the flight. The two of us laughed from takeoff to landed !

My thoughts are with all of Phyllis’ family. She was a wonderful woman who enriched everyone’s life. Rest in peace my friend.

Please accept my heartfelt sympathy at Phyllis’s passing. I, too, worked with Phyllis at IBM for many years, both as a peer and as part of her team. She worked hard but always made it fun when you were working with her. She cared so much about everyone she worked with and those of us on her team knew that she would always have your back. The perfect tribute to the mark Phyllis made on her fellow IBMers came when she retired. Because the large number of people she wanted to share in her celebration, she opted for dessert and beverages instead of a luncheon or dinner. I remember she had two conference rooms booked on separate afternoons in Armonk and in Somers and invited people she worked with, her team and her clients to stop by. It seemed like the people stopping by to wish her the best never ended. She was loved and will be missed. I will remember her as always smiling and laughing, a woman who lived her life to the fullest and loved her family, friends and co-workers with all her heart. .

My deepest condolences to Phyllis’ beloved family! Phyllis was my first manager at IBM. She was a mentor and a friend, who was always ready to listen, to help figure things out, and to cheer you on. Phyllis was full of life and spunk! I will dearly miss her.

We were so sad to hear the news. It was always a pleasure to see Phyllis when we came to Stamford. She always had great stories and she was always interesting. She was such a great presence and she will be missed.
