Phyllis Bagnasco Kyd, 85, died peacefully on March 26, 2015 surrounded by her family and friends, after a long struggle with COPD.

Phyllis is preceded in death by her parents, her husband of 27 years Michael Bagnasco, her sisters Nancy DiSalvo, Vivian Lovaglio and Josephine (Josie) Russo.

On June 7, 1952 she married her first love, Michael (Mike) Bagnasco. They lived in North Africa for several years before coming back to the states to start a family. In addition to raising their five children, Phyllis was an active member of St. Rose of Lima and St. Elizabeth Ann Seaton volunteering for Helping Hands and the Altar Society. Phyllis thoroughly enjoyed travelling the world and cooking wonderful Italian meals for her family.

Years after Mike passed away, James Kyd came into her life, where he has been for much of the last 30+ years. They travelled to many beautiful places around the globe and instilled the love of travel into her children by taking each of them on a birthday trip abroad.

Phyllis worked in retail at Sears and Roebuck, eventually moving up to the Personnel (HR) office where she learned what she needed to start her own business Personnel Seekers. She also worked in banking and ended her working career back in retail at Marc Cross Fine Leathers in the Galleria.

Phyllis is survived by her sister Anna and her husband Richard Cavanaugh; husband, James Kyd; children, Elizabeth (Betty) Johnson, Lia Demuth and husband Mark, Mary Atchison and husband Jimmie, Michael R.

"The family would like to especially thank Dr. Debroeck, Dr. Venkatesh, North Cypress Medical Center and their staffs for the many years of taking care of Phyllis!"
