Phyllis M. Mondsini, 73, of Spring Hill, Florida passed away November 30, 2017.

She is survived by her loving husband, Michael C. Mondsini; her children Gina-Marie McNeill, and Michael C. Mondsini Jr.; her grandchildren Theresa DeCroix and Michael DeCroix, and Kaylin Mondsini; and her great granddaughter, Giuliana DeCroix; and her sisters, Anna Miller, son Andrew Rowjohn Jr. and family, and Doris Guarino, son Rocco Guarino and family and other loved ones.

She was born in Newark, New Jersey on August 28, 1944 where she resided most of her life before coming to Florida.

She is predeceased by Phillip and Mary Biondello (mother and father), Perry Biondello (brother), Tom Miller (brother-in-law), Maria-Elena Carrell (sister-in-law), and many other blessed family members.

Phyllis grew up in the heart of New Jersey and filled her life with music, family, and love. She married her childhood sweetheart, Mike, at the ripe young age of 19 and together they built the foundation to base the rest of their life on. They had a special love and special bond that not many of us get the opportunity to know and have. It was a love that understood and was patient through the hard times, a love that could laugh and rejoice in the good times, and a love that could withstand a lifetime and beyond. Their love is a true love and one that most of us strive for in our lives but may never find. Theirs is a forever love and one to be cherished. After all, they were married for 54 years and still never tired of each other, but kept driving each other crazy every day. With many adventures fraught with some hardships and sacrifice, she never turned away anyone who would show up at her door, but instead give them the kindest smile and invite them in for a home cooked meal. She always loved children and when her own came into the picture, she knew that she needed to care for them before she took care of herself. She loved seeing the joy in her family's eyes especially around the holidays when they would all be gathered around the dinner table, mouths watering over the incredible spread she'd just spent the last three days cooking. Even though she was exhausted from all the hard work that went into preparing the delicious meal, she would never show it. Instead, she would have a hundred-watt smile plastered permanently on her face the entire day except when it came to pictures, she would always hide it away. She was happy making others happy and giving that feeling of family was the best gift she could ever leave behind.

Phyllis was also a good listener and a spitfire, which is why for many years she dyed her hair red. There was many a time you could find her firing back or telling someone off about something she believed very strongly in especially when it came to politics. It was not unlike her or her husband to have very heated arguments with a television screen. Her lively spirit is what made everyone love her. She was a truly unique person and her love knew no bounds. She always encouraged each and every person she met to be the best they could be, family or not. Her mark will forever be felt in each person's heart that she has touched throughout the years.

Phyllis also made a big deal out of traditions in the household, ones that she kept throughout her life. Her grandchildren have fond memories of how each Christmas Eve they would get one present which would be their Christmas pajamas and she would read Twas the Night Before Christmas to them in her animated, light-hearted voice.
She was a wife. She was a mother. She was a grandmother. She was a great-grandmother. Those are her accomplishments. She has touched many hearts and lives throughout the years. She will be missed dearly and has gained her wings elsewhere so now she can finally be free and fly like she always wished she could following the steps to the invisible staircase in the sky.

Thank you to all who have known her or had a part in her life. Thank you for making her who she was and remembering her the way she was. She will forever remain in all our hearts and in our minds from this day forth.

Friends will be received on December 4th, 2017 from 2-4 and 6-8 at the Brooksville Brewer and Son Chapel of Brewer and Sons Funeral Homes. Mass December 5th, 2017 at 10 a.m. at St. Joan of Arc Burial will follow at Masaryktown Cemetery.
