Obituary of Phyllis Mikos

Phyllis A. Mikos, age 83, of Fairfield, beloved wife of the late Stanley W. Mikos, Sr., passed away on Monday, November 12, 2018 at her home, surrounded by her loved ones after battling a short illness.

She was fiercely loyal to her family and friends and will be missed every single day by those that truly knew and loved her, including her children, John Mikos, and his family, of Stratford, Bernice Dohn, of Milford, Teresa French, and her husband, Gregg, of Fairfield, and Stanley W. Mikos, Jr., and his wife, Megan, of Fairfield; grandchildren, Roy DeGiovanni, and his wife, Jennifer, Matthew DeGiovanni, and his fiancée, Sarah Rickard, Stephanie and Gregg French, and James Mikos; great-grandchildren, Aubrey and RJ DeGiovanni and soon to be arriving, Lola DeGiovanni and Caydin Greenaway.

Phyllis and Stanley married in Catonsville, Maryland and shared 49 years together before Stanley passed away unexpectedly. Upon marriage, Phyllis moved to Fairfield with her husband and remained a lifetime resident. While Phyllis devoted her life to her husband, children, and thereafter her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, she also assisted other families as a caregiver and was known as "Grandma" to everyone who met her.

Phyllis loved to sing and was a regular member at of Assumption's Resurrection Choir. She enjoyed relaxing with her son Stanley, his wife, Megan, and grandson, James, on their boat watching the fireworks.
