I tried calling Phyllis to restablish contact after several years and found that her phone had been disconnected. I then googled her name and saw the unhappy news of her death last May. I am so sorry! I have known Phyllis since I was 17 and she 24, a newly married substitute teacher at the HS of Music and Art. She was very kind to me and a strong influence, leading me to apply for the Fulbright grant that changed my life and encouraging me to continue my education. In times of hardship, she and Sam even took me in as needed. My husband and I participated in all their family affairs, as they did in ours, up to the point when sadly, in later life, we more-or-less lost contact. Josiah, Ted, and Sebastian: please accept my deep condolences. I wish I had known. I certainly would have been at the funeral.
With warm regards,
Joan Gluckauf Haahr

Phyllis and I served together for many years in the PSC, and we enjoyed talking about art history -- her profession and my interest. Phyllis also was proud of her sons, and she told me about their accomplishments. She had a realistic view of human nature that allowed her to appreciate the good things, even in people she did not necessarily like. Phyllis was a friend as well as a colleague. I send condolences to the Gluck family.
