Phyllis M. Wojtas (Taormina) age 74, of Huntley and formerly of Barrington, passed away on October 16, 2020 at JourneyCare Care Center in Barrington, with her loving family at her side.

She was a longtime hairdresser and volunteer with the Rest in His Arms Angel Gowns Organization. She was revered by everyone as a Super Woman, with an enormous heart for giving. She was a phenomenal cook, baker, quilter and seamstress, and would be the first to offer her assistance to anyone in need. She enjoyed spending time with all her grandchildren and being a strong part of their lives. Nothing made her more proud than her grandchildren.

She was a dear friend of many and will be dearly missed by everyone who knew her.

She was preceded in death by her significant other Philip T. Carmichael, and loving parents Angeline (Bruno) Taormina and father Sam Taormina.
