MIAMI - On Saturday, April 17, 2021, Phyllis (Woloshin, Weiss, Kimbrough) Rose, passed away at the age of 89 in Miami, Fla., near her loving and devoted son and daughter-in-law, Nathan Weiss and Carolina Garcia.
Phyllis was born and raised in the East Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago, attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison for undergraduate and graduate school, and spent her professional life employed in the UW-Madison library system.
Phyllis loved the progressive atmosphere of Madison. She was an anti-war activist and feminist who volunteered for organizations such as The Progressive, Planned Parenthood, and Freedom From Religion Foundation. She was a mentor to young women, encouraging them to be fearless in the pursuit of their life goals. She loved lunching with friends, sitting with a book on her back porch, and attending plays at American Players Theater in Spring Green, Wis., with her husband, Robert Kimbrough. Phyllis will be missed and remembered for her wit, intelligence, indefatigable spirit, and defense of underdogs everywhere.
In addition to Nathan and Carolina, Phyllis is survived by eldest son, Danny Weiss (Felicia Roberts); cousin, Marvin Uritz; nephew, David Sutton; and stepsons, Bob and John Kimbrough. Her beloved sister, Connie Sutton, passed away in 2018.
