Phyllis was a dynamic woman who painted her life with large, bold strokes. She brought vigor to every challenge, whether redirecting scarce educational resources to better serve children, or corralling her dear standard poodle, Stella. Phyllis enlivened every meeting and every conversation with her keen observations and her wry wit. I miss her energy, her strength, her style, and most of all, her friendship.
