Phyllis Rae Kirson

January 22, 1933 ~ January 30, 2019 (age 86)


On Thursday, January 30, 2019, Phyllis Rae Kirson (Cohen). A native Washingtonian and longtime Maryland resident, she had a giving heart and volunteer spirit. Phyllis was the first wife of Dr. Stanley Kirson and loving mother to her three children, Diane Kirson-Glitman, Lisa Malyn and Joel Kirson. She was a devoted grandmother with endless patience for her five grandchildren, Sarah, Abbi, Robert, Mayah and Jenna. Phyllis graduated from Roosevelt High School in 1951 and Sinai Hospital School of Nursing in 1955. After raising her family, she returned to her nursing career at Suburban Hospital in Bethesda Maryland. Her love of performing arts found a niche as a docent at the Strathmore Music Center. Her Strathmore work, attending the opera, and her grandchildren gave her great joy in her later years along with any event involving travel or the beach.
