September 8, 1947 – August 1, 2019

Phyllis Fanny Krygier (nee Bleiweiss) passed away on Thursday, August 1, 2019 at the age of 71 surrounded by family and friends after a brave battle with cancer.

Phyllis was born in a small town in Germany outside of a DP Camp to Holocaust Survivors in 1947.

Phyllis was always community-minded and was proud to be the Mooter-Farein president at the I. L. Peretz school when her girls were young. She created a community of friends and family around her and was known for her big personality, her big heart, and her big laugh.

Phyllis was predeceased by her dear husband, Henry and her beloved daughter, Jessica. She is survived by her daughter, Ilana; son-in-law, David; close family and friends and her three precious grandchildren, Solly, Jorgie, and Manny.
