Phyllis Ann Krankowski, age 60, of Annapolis, MD, passed away suddenly at her home, with her parents by her side, on July 18, 2019 after a four decades long battle with Crohn’s Disease and its ensuing complications.
Phyllis was born on March 4, 1959, in Washington, D.C. , the first daughter and third child of six children born to Felix and June (née Schultz) Krankowski of Annapolis, MD.
Phyllis graduated from Friendly High School in Fort Washington, MD in 1977, and went on to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from The University of Maryland in 1981, as well as a Master of Arts degree in Hospital Administration from The George Washington University in 1984.
She worked in Human Resources for the Safeway Corporation and later as a Marketing Specialist for Safeway Corporation until she retired in 2019.
Phyllis enjoyed her work, as well as walking, running, baking delectable creations, and spoiling her nine nieces and nephews. She faced her health challenges stoically, with courage and faith. She never waivered in her commitment to her work, nor did she ever surrender her sweet disposition, her kind heart, or her thoughtfulness, which she lovingly bestowed upon all the members of her family and friends. She was beloved and admired, and will be deeply mourned and missed by all.
