Phyllis Jean Todero of Oxford, FL passed away on May 28th at the age of 94. Born Phyllis Jean Morgan on August 26, 1922 in Harlan, Iowa, she was the daughter of the late Leroy Stanley Morgan and Leta Blaine (Woods) Morgan and was the oldest of three children. Phyllis knew that the farm life was not for her so after graduating from high school she worked as a flight attendant out of Chicago, IL. She met her future husband, Frank Joseph Todero, at a USO dance. When Frank returned from the war, they were married on March 17, 1945, and moved to Greenwich, CT. There Phyllis worked as a teaching assistant for 30 years, was active in her church, and enjoyed bowling. She lived in Greenwich for 65 years before retiring to The Villages, FL in 2010.

Phyllis and Frank were blessed with two children, three grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband Frank on January 25, 2002 and by her daughter Jill Smith on December 10, 2014.

Phyllis was neat and organized, looked younger than her years, and had a sharp mind. She liked to read and enjoyed her glass of wine every day. She was a beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, and will be dearly missed by her family; son-in-law David Smith of The Villages; granddaughter Lisa Voigt and her husband Eric Voigt, and great-grandchildren Emma and Adam Voigt, of Delaware; niece Mary Kay Drew and family of Glenburn, ME; daughter Cindy Casey of Ohio; grandson Corey Casey of Ontario, Canada, and and grandson Tom Smith of Connecticut.
