Phyllis Jean Kalisz

December 6, 1948 — November 10, 2018

Phyllis Jean (Biondi) Kalisz, of South Lyon, peacefully passed away on Saturday, November 10, 2018. Phyllis was born on December 6, 1948 in Detroit, Michigan. She grew up in Melvindale, Michigan, the daughter of her parents who preceded her, Patrick and Wyotha, along with her six siblings: Paul (Joyce), Pam VanHollebeke (Jim), Phil (Kim), Peggy Biondi-Tobe (Jim), Patti Sullivan (Tim), and Paulette Menzel (Steve). Her love for being an oral surgeon assistant and her care for patients showed throughout her career. Phyllis loved life, her family, her friends, her desserts and especially adding new names to her "DOLLAR LIST". She touched everyone she met in a very special caring way.

She will be missed and is survived by her beloved husband, James, daughter Kimberly (Zerrenner), grandson Nathan, and son-in-law Kevin; as well as many nieces and nephews who affectionately knew her as “Pho Pho”.
