Phyllis T. Wecker Greenberg, 84, passed away peacefully on Monday, January 27, 2014. She was surrounded by family and the loving nurses at Kings Mountain Hospice House in Kings Mountain, NC.
She is survived by her son Gary Greenberg and his wife Candace of Cape Neddick Maine; her grandson Alex Greenberg and his partner Bethany Diegelman of Youngsville, NC; and grandson Dan Greenberg of Manchester, HH.
Phyllis was born on December 14, 1929 in Brooklyn, NY. She met and married the love of her life Raymond Greenberg and together they raised two sons in Oradell, NJ. Phyllis was an avid homemaker, enjoying cooking, crafting and kept the most beautiful tidy home-earning her the nickname “Mrs. Cleanberg.”
Traveling with her husband Ray was one of her greatest memories together. They explored Europe, Japan, China, Singapore, Malaysia, the Caribbean, Canada and many states in the U.S.
Ray and Phil retired to Florida in 1979 and Melbourne, West Palm Beach and Bradenton were places where they made many friends and enjoyed years of socializing.
In 2008 Ray and Phyllis made their final move to Kings Mountain, NC, where beautiful weather and gracious people filled their final years. When Ray passed in February 2013, Phyllis decided to stay in her beloved home. A circle of dear friends and neighbors enveloped her, and the family wishes to express our most heartfelt gratitude to Ken and Glenda Dawkins, Jacquie and Jim Rochford and their children Connor and Brianna, and Kings Mountain Chief of Police Melvin Proctor and his wife Lisa, plus the countless kind neighbors from the Woodbridge Community.
Phyllis was preceded in death by a son Robert Greenberg in 2011, and a dearly loved Shetland Sheepdog, Princey.
Private family services will be held in the spring in Paramus, NJ, and there will be no calling hours.
Lastly, the family will forever be grateful to the Kings Mountain Hospice House for making Phyllis’s last days full of peace and comfort. Judy, Rhonda, Pam and special friend Pat gave above and beyond love and support. Phyllis called them her Angels.
Cecil M Burton Funeral Home and Crematory is serving the family of Mrs. Greenberg.
