Memories Timeline


  1. My Beautiful sister-in-law, may you rest peacefully with those who have now welcomed you with open arms. Loved you very much.

  2. Though not directly family, you were an amazing aunt to me and great-aunt to my children. You touched every person who crossed your path. May your memory be a comfort to Frank, Lou, Frankie, and Matthew. You will be greatly missed by all.

  3. My loving cousin, I have so many wonderful memories from the times throughout our lives we were blessed to spend time together. You were and are so special. Your love for your family and your friends was strong and will always be remembered until we are reunited with you.

  4. There are no words to express the profound loss that we all feel and this empty hole in our hearts. Phyllis lived her life showing kindness and love to everyone around her. Family, friend or strangers always received that warm smile and giving nature . We are so very lucky to have known her and shared our lives with her for this short time. God must have had special plans for our dear friend Phyllis in heaven. Although not related by blood I considered her like a sister and the entire G family like family as well. I know she will always be watching over all of us with those huge angel wings and we will watch over her boys and her husband Frank and the rest of the family with love. Let’s honor this spectacular woman and dear dear friend by living each day to the fullest and making sure we tell those around us how much we love them each and every day. Always in our hearts. 💔

  5. My heart breaks for your entire family. I am so sorry to hear of Phyllis passing. Phyllis is one of the sweetest, sincere people I have ever known. May she Rest In Peace.

  6. Phyllis was a wonderful person, sweet, loving, smiling and laughing. Always had great times when we were together. We even texted a day before she passed as to what we planned to do when she got better. There are no words that can be said that will take your heartache away. A few years ago I read that stars are holes in heavens floor where your loved ones can look down on you and are always with you. Phyllis will never be forgotten and will always be in our hearts.

  7. candleOur family cherishes the friendship we shared during our years spent in Commack. Our memories are of wonderful times, laughs and all that being good neighbors can bring. Having our children grow up together was such a highlight.

    Rest well knowing your legacy will live on with your beautiful family while your spirit will be kept alive by your loving husband.

    You will be missed.

  8. Mary, Fred Ashley, Matthew

    As I write this, tears are rolling down my face. There are no words to express how we feel. Our hearts are broken. Phyllis was such a great person and even better friend. We had such great times together, whether it was on vacation, at a friend’s home or just having a cup of tea together. We will miss her laughter, friendship and love. Phyllis would always be there for you. We lost such a wonderful person but heaven now has gained a very special angel who will be looking down on us. The Giannizzero’s are like family to us and we look after them for Phyllis.

  9. Our memories go back a long time. We remember the times we spent together. She will be missed by us. We will pray for you all.

  10. candleThe best times of my life were spent with you and the girls raising our children in Commack. You are beautiful inside and out. You always had a smile on your face and your memory will live on forever. You will be forever missed. The world was a better place because you were in it. You will greatly be missed.

  11. Words cannot express the deep sadness felt at the loss of Phyllis-wife, mother, sister, aunt, friend. She was the most kind, compassionate, loving person and it showed in her love for Frank, Frankie, Louis & Matthew. It was a pleasure and an honor to have been her friend. We shared so many years of being neighbors and then friends/family. The world has truly lost a wonderful individual and my heart goes out to those who loved her first.

  12. Loving, kind, gentle, smiling, happy, sincere….that is Phyllis. You were always a joy to be around. You were the world to so many. May you watch over all who knew and loved you. You will be so missed.

    I have the fondest, warmest memories of growing up together with you and your dear sister, Phyllis.

Although we lived separate lives in our adulthood, you all hold a special place in my heart. Phyllis came from and had a beautiful family. I’m so sad today and am sorry I couldn’t be with you all. You are all in my thoughts and prays. May Phyllis Rest In Peace. God be with all of you on this journey of life. Sending my love.

We love you, Phyllis, you were like a sister to me. We will always keep a special place in our hearts for you. I know that you are once again with your beloved parents.. They, too, were special people. I hold many warm memories close to my heart. Heaven has a dear angel. Rest in peace, knowing that you are very loved and missed.
