Obituary of Phyllis M. Silverberg
Please share a memory of Phyllis to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
WESTPORT, CONN Phyllis Silverberg died on Nov. 10, 2022, at age 87. She loved living in Westport. When her husband Mort left Xerox to start a new job at Pitney Bowes in 1985, they relocated from Rochester, N.Y., and have been continually delighted by the area ever since. They rapidly built a large circle of new friends. Phyllis loved living close to her sister, Arlene Suchotliff, and her family. She swapped her career as an elementary school teacher for one as a corporate research librarian at Gartner group. She was an intelligent woman with technical skills far ahead of her time, and ability to search online databases long before Google was legendary. Her calendar was always filled: talks at the Westport Library, theater performances to attend from New York City to New Haven, bridge and Mahjong games, dinner dates with friends. They went to the beach and traveled the world. She was brilliant and independent. She loved Westport and all she found there. Phyllis, who died from complications of pneumonia, leaves behind her husband of 69 years, Mort Silverberg; her two daughters, Lynn McDonald and Judy Ross, and three grandchildren, Ben Ross, Tyler Ross and Amy McDonald. Services were held privately at Willowbrook Cemetery, 395 Main Street, Westport. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Westport Library.To send flowers to the family or plant a tree in memory of Phyllis Silverberg, please visit Tribute Store
