DR. PHYLLIS B. KLUGERMAN
Dr. Phyllis B. Klugeman, of Millstone Township, passed away Sunday, Oct. 24, 2010, after a prolonged battle with thyroid cancer. Dr. Klugerman earned her Ed.D degree in Administration, Supervision and Adult Education from Rutgers University. She retired as Vice President from Wells Fargo Advisors in November 2009. Prior to that, she worked for 28 years in various educational capacities in both instructional and administrative positions, most recently in the East Brunswick Public Schools. She served as a board member of various national, state, and local groups, authored numerous articles and publications, and presented a variety of seminars throughout the country dealing with education and finance. Throughout her careers as educator and financial advisor, she touched many lives and will be remembered as a humanitarian, mentor and good friend. She saw in others what they were unable to see in themselves, and she helped them believe in their own abilities. She was an ardent believer in promoting self-esteem, and her philosophy was to help individuals help themselves to realistically plan for and improve their lives.
Dr. Klugerman is survived by her longtime partner, Janet Hoffner of Millstone Township; her daughter and son-in-law, Jill and William Neaton of Freehold; her son, Eric Klugerman of West Windsor; her grandchildren, Nicole and Matthew Neaton of Freehold; her stepdaughters, Traci Stepanski of Houston, Texas, and Karin Gilbert of Farmingdale; her brother, Robert Horowitz of Las Vegas, Nev.; and her nephew and niece, Craig and Andrea Horowitz of Tenafly.
