It is with great sadness that the family of Phyllis Mitchell announce her passing on November 9, 2021 at the age of 86. Phyllis lived in Pittsburgh her entire life and worked 22 years in housekeeping at the University of Pittsburgh. Phyllis loved her family and was an expert puzzle maker, enjoyed bowling and cheering on the Steelers faithfully!
