Peacefully with her daughters by her side on Thursday, March 11, 2021. Wife of the late George Dlugos; loving mother of Theresa (Ron) Viskovicz, Loretta (late Sam) Smith, and the late Patricia Dlugos; sister of the late Helen Yost and Paul Rutkowski; grandmother of Vicki Viskovicz, Traci (Ryan) Wrobleski, Samuel and Daniel Smith; great-grandmother of Connor and one great-grandson expected in May.
Arrangements have been entrusted to the SZAFRANSKI-EBERLEIN FUNERAL HOME, INC., 101 Third St., Carnegie. Per Phyllis's wishes, there are no visitations or services. A private family celebration of her life will be held at a later date. Phyllis will be laid to rest next to her husband George in St. Ignatius Cemetery.
Phyllis, born Philomena Mary, was raised on a farm in McKees Rocks, attended grade school at St. Phillip’s, and graduated from Langley High School in 1943. She married George in 1948 and was a devoted wife until his death in 2001. While raising three daughters she worked as a teller at PNC Bank, and retired after twenty years of service.
She was active in bowling, bingo, card games, occasional casino trips, senior citizen activities and Christian Mothers during her lifetime. She always enjoyed time with family and was a doting “Grammy” to her four grandchildren and great-grandson. She was a devout Catholic and wonderful caregiver to her ailing daughter, father, husband and sister, and was an overwhelmingly generous person.
Phyllis made her home at Country Meadows in Bridgeville during her final three years, where she was well liked and appreciated for her quick wit. She enjoyed participating in any and all activities, especially her exercises, which she did faithfully even at age 95.
Her loved ones are forever grateful to all the Country Meadows staff from whom she received exceptional care and support, as well as, Gallagher Hospice who ensured her comfort and peace in her final hours.
Family and friends take great solace in the memories, joy and love she gave all the days of her life.
“I am at peace,
my soul’s at rest
There is no need for tears.
For with your love…I was so blessed
For all those many years.”
