Phyllis was a homemaker most of her life but did manage to work several years in a New York downtown business district brokerage house as a bookkeeper when her children moved on in life. Phyllis retired at the age of 65. Phyllis was the mother to Tom Gonnella (Elizabeth), Amelia Lombardi (partner Edmund) Antoinette Irianne (Joseph) and Michael Gonnella (Laurie). Both Phyllis and Dominic loved to travel and loved the Jersey Shore. Phyllis was predeceased by brothers, Fred, Albert and Louis and sister, Marie Bogusky. Surviving is a sister in law Angelina Trevison. The Gonnella family was grateful for the excellent care she received from the staff at Potomac Homes in Hillsdale.
