  1. I am so sorry for your loss. I remember Phyllis in our younger years from the old neighborhood. Those were such good memories. My thoughts and prayers are with the Chinappi and Pennello families at this sad time. A thought that helps me is ‘Perhaps they are not stars in the sky, but tiny openings for our loved ones to shine through to let us know they are happy.’ Phyllis is in Heaven and shining down on all of you. She is at peace.

    With my deepesst sympathy,
    Malora (Iacubucci) Zavaglia

  2. I do not know if you remember me, b8ut
    I lived next door to the Pennellos, and
    i used to walk phyllis to school every-

    i wish I had looked her up when I left
    Burrows street and now it is too late!
    My condolences to her family and if any-
    one has a recent picture of her could you

    someone in the family send me a recent
    picture of Phyllis if they can, but forgot
    to include muy e-mail address,which is:

    I used to walk Phyllis to school when
    we very young. Never saw her again.
    I am so sorry I did not try harder to find

    Sincerely Ann (DiCicco) Loeb

  4. I was so sorry to learn of Phyllis’s passing and didn’t know of her illness.

    I worked with her at Erdman Anthony Associates for a few years and always enjoyed her sense of humor as well as her love of family.

    My sypmathy goes out to her family and friends.

  5. My condolences for your loss. It is reassuring knowing she is at peace. Thinking of you, Mary, and remembering good times with our families. Anita

  6. So sorry to hear the news of Phyllis’ passing. Our parents were best friends, stood up in each other’s weddings and christened each other’s eldest children, Phyllis and I. When the Chinappi’s lived on Avery Street in the 50’s Phyllis and I used to play games on the porches for hours with the Mitrano girls and other neighbors. I’m sure Uncle Speed, Aunt Florence, Uncle Tony and Aunt Rosie were waiting for Phyllis with open arms. God Bless.
