Born in Scranton on Aug. 30, 1931, daughter of Edgar and Minnie Brown Williams, Phyllis was a graduate of West Scranton High School. Before retirement, she worked as a bookkeeper at ICS and Haddon Craftsmen. She was a loving aunt to her nieces and nephews, and many great-nieces and great-nephews.

She was preceded in death by sisters, Brenda Butler; Glenys Churchill, Wales, UK; Olga Mirtz Crossin and Marjorie Greene; and several nephews. Her faithful companion, Robert J. McDon­ough Sr., passed away on Dec. 8.

The family would like to express its heartfelt gratitude to Dr. David Mayne and all the nurses, aides and therapist on fourth floor, Moses Taylor Hospital for their kindness, caring ways and compassion toward our aunt, she will be forever remembered.
