Phyllis Cohen Obituary
July 23, 1946 - February 24, 2017 Phyllis Cohen, activist in Jewish organizations, age 70 Phyllis Cohen of Redondo Beach, CA, died of pancreatic cancer on February 23, 2017. She was a founding board member of her beloved Synagogue, Temple Emet; she served on the boards of the Los Angeles chapters of Jewish Family Services and the National Council for Jewish Women, where she served as a volunteer on that organization's help line for the past 25 years. Phyllis is survived by her partner Herb Koch, her two daughters Daryl Gordon and Stacey Light, her brother Robert Hoyt and sister-in-law Nancy Hoyt, and seven grandchildren who will always treasure the unconditional love and support she gave them each and every day. In order to commemorate the love and light that she gave us, we are inviting you to join us for an 11am service on Monday, February 27th at Hillside Memorial Park, 6001 W. Centinela Avenue in Los Angeles. Following the service, we will be gathering to further honor her full life at Temple Emet at 2501 W. 236th Street in Torrance. In lieu of flowers, donations to Phyllis' memory should be made to Temple Emet or to the National Council of Jewish Women.
