Phyllis, the widow of Michael M. Plocharczyk, was born on December 24, 1924, to Antoni and Wladyslawa (Yaworski) Ferrence in Manchester, Connecticut, where she resided for most of her life. Phyllis was a lifelong communicant of St. John’s Polish National Catholic Church, of which her parents were two of its founding members. Her employment years were spent as a bookkeeper for the W.G. Glenney Co. and The Steak Club prior to her retirement. She was dedicated to her church and its activities, spending time with family, especially her grandchildren, travel with her husband, dancing at the Army and Navy Club and casino outings with the Bolton seniors and her sister Irene. She also enjoyed spending time with her loving friends from Manchester and Berry Patch in South Windsor. In addition to her husband and parents, Phyllis was predeceased by sisters Helen “Lil” Opalach and Janet “Nicky” Dzielinski, both of Manchester. She is survived by sons Michael, of The Villages, Florida, and David of Kennebunk, Maine, and their families, including several grandchildren and great grandchildren, sister Irene and Walter Obzut of Manchester, sister in law Sandee Plocharczyk of South Carolina and many nieces and nephews. Following Phyllis’s wishes, a private family graveside service will be held at East Cemetery, Manchester, CT at a later date.
