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.

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.
