After dealing with the effects of heart failure, Phyllis Becker passed away peacefully in Chapel Hill, NC on Sunday, January 8, 2023. Phyllis was born in Brooklyn, NY to Harry and Doris Adelson, where she grew up and attended Brooklyn College. In 1965 she married Martin Becker, her husband of 50 years, who predeceased her in 2015.

Phyllis spent more than 30 years as a special education and resource room teacher both in the New York and Teaneck public school systems. She was passionate about education and particularly reading. She loved travel, theatre, museums, film and socialising with her many friends.

After retiring, she volunteered at several charities including the Rodda Center, Bergen County Courthouse, where she helped teach children of women dealing with domestic legal issues and also at Congregation Beth Shalom.

In 2019 she moved from Teaneck to Chapel Hill, NC to be close to her son, Kenneth Becker and his family. The care and attention she received at The Cedars and by Irene Flores Galeana was extremely supportive.

She is survived by her sons Fred Becker and his wife, Kyounghee Cho, Kenneth Becker and his wife, Kimberly Levell, her grandchildren Danielle Hana and Sara Jinju Becker and Owen Martin and Katy Jane Becker, as well as her brother, Robert Adelson.

I have a lifetime of memories of your mom. She was always caring and attentive, and was a devoted daughter to her parents and family. Whether it was parenting, teaching or volunteering, Cousin Phyllis devoted herself wholeheartedly to anything she pursued. I will miss her.
