In memory of
Phyllis Siegel Siegel, Phyllis, passed away peacefully on February 14, 2017 at the Inn at the Fountains in Millbrook, NY after a long battle with Alzheimer's Disease. Born in the Bronx, NY, daughter of the late Charles and Beatrice Edelman. She earned a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education from Midwestern University in Texas and a Master's Degree in Music Education from Columbia University in New York. She was married to David Siegel, 1955-1987, and the couple had two children, Jennifer and Edward. She worked as a music teacher in Levittown, LI for several years as well as St. Patrick's School in Yorktown Heights, NY, before going back to school to earn a certificate in Computer Science from Mercy College. She then worked as a Systems Analyst at the Lower Hudson Regional Information Center until her retirement. Never losing her love of music, she always kept it a part of her life by continuing to teach piano. Her most rewarding experience was teaching her grandchildren piano and watching them excel and passing on this talent that they will always have. In her earlier years, she was an accomplished tennis and bridge player, winning many awards and tournaments. She also enjoyed her trips to Florida and the going to the beach. Most importantly she enjoyed spending as much time as she could with her family and grandchildren. She is survived by son Edward Siegel; daughter Jennifer Caso and husband Robert; grandchildren Jessica, Gabriella and Daniel Caso; her sister and brother-in-law Bernice and Nat Cooperman; sister Carole Salkind; nephew, Steven Salkind; niece Nina Bauman and husband Joe; and great-niece and nephew Rebecca and Benjamin Bauman. She is pre-deceased by brother-in-law Mort Salkind and niece Susan Salkind. Arrangements are entrusted to the Vander Plaat Memorial Home, 113 South Farview Avenue, Paramus.
