Phyllis R ZBAR

February 23, 1934July 3, 2019

Devoted daughter and sister to father (Isidor), mother (Sophie), and sisters (Renee and Paula) all deceased. She was a gourmet chef who gave wonderful dinner parties and was an accomplished and talented woman who did beautiful knitting, tapestries and stitch work for herself, family and friends. She had a fabulous sense of humor and wit. Phyllis began as baby sitter to the Ryan children in Jackson Heights, Queens and soon all the Zbars became extended family and devoted friends to the Ryans and Valenza cousins for more than 70 years. A favorite vacation spot was Cape Cod. Maggie Rivera was also her loving friend and care-provider before and during her stay at the Forest Hills Care Center where she was treated with respect and consideration.
