Phyllis Lucille Griffiths McKillen, August 20, 1925 - June 11, 2018

Phyllis died peacefully on June 11, 2018. She was a resident of Carillon Assisted Living and was formerly from Sunrise, Florida and Westbury, New York.

She is survived by her three children: Janice McKillen Ammann & husband Fred, Dan McKillen & wife Debbie, and Brian McKillen. Phyllis was cherished by her eight grandchildren: Kelly Ammann Fogleman & husband Chad , Greg Ammann & wife Danielle, Matt Ammann & wife Hayley, Daniel McKillen, Ryan McKillen, Tim McKillen, Tyler McKillen, and Talor McKillen. She will also be missed by her four great-grandchildren: Connor & Henry Fogleman, and Billy & Blake Ammann.

Phyllis had a successful career in real estate in Westbury, N.Y. before retiring to Florida. She enjoyed the sunshine, the beach, Frank Sinatra, and also liked to gamble a bit playing poker, bingo, and occasional wagers on race horses in the Triple Crown. Phyllis was always ready for a game of Scrabble and delighted in beating her children and grandchildren while teaching them the game.

"Nanny Mac" always had a smile on her face, a great sense of humor, and kind words for everyone. She also knew how to dance when everyone was watching. She was single Mom who raised three children by herself and always focused on the happiness of her family. Her last few years at Carillon were peaceful and comfortable. RIP Miss Phyllis.

She was a sweet, kind, special, and loving lady who I will miss very much. I was one of the PCA's who took care of her at carillon assisted living and she was like a grandmother to me and I loved her.
