Phyllis Auliano (September 1, 1932 - February 28, 2021)
Service Date: March 5th, 2021

Phyllis Auliano was a lifelong New Yorker, with a passion for family, friends, and learning. For Phyllis, 'New York' meant Union Square -- a neighborhood she loved -- and where she lived and worked.

Phyllis enjoyed a long successful career at Guardian Life Insurance Company, where her intelligence and attention-to-detail got noticed, allowing her to rise through the company, eventually retiring as Second Vice President. She considered her friends and co-workers to be her 'Guardian Family', and continued to remain involved with the company and her friends even after retirement.

Family was very important to Phyllis, and she was instrumental in organizing and hosting countless gatherings and dinners over the decades. Her warmth and generosity meant that many close friends were also included, and became honorary family members.

After retiring, Phyllis redirected her interests and love-of-learning towards synagogue activities, regularly attending (and looking forward to) the weekly Brotherhood Synagogue Bible studies classes. She also had a keen interest in finance, Israel, and politics.

Phyllis remained active, never losing her wit, intelligence, or humor -- and those of us that laughed with her and loved her will feel this loss for a long time.

Phyllis will be laid to rest in Nassau Knolls Cemetery, joining her beloved husband John, who departed 4 years earlier. Both will be greatly missed.
