Phyllis E. Wolfrom

Phyllis E. Wolfrom – 74 of Peabody passed away peacefully at her home on Saturday, November 8, surrounded by her loving family. She was the beloved wife of Raymond Wolfrom, with whom she shared 48 years of marriage. Born on December 10, 1939 in Lyon Mountain, New York, she was the daughter of the late Edith and Fred Begor. Surviving her, in addition to her husband, are her five children, Jeffrey Liford and his wife Eva of Claremore, OK, her daughter Melody Liford of Peabody, her daughter Tammy Liford of Peabody, her daughter Romonda Antico and her husband Michael Carney of Sudbury, and her daughter Tonia Aucoin and her husband William of Maynard. In addition to being a loving wife and mother, she was the grandmother to eight grandchildren, Heath and Kyle Liford, Travis Liford, Christopher Giurleo, Cassandra Martorana, David and Nicholas Antico, Audrey Aucoin and the great grandmother to five. She is also survived by her loving siblings, Betty Davies, Joan Donovan, Terry Begor, and Douglas Begor. Phyllis was employed at Parker Brothers in Salem for 15 years and then at PCD in Peabody before retiring to enjoy spending more time with her family and friends. Phyllis was a “home body” and loved nothing more than to be at home surrounded by her family and friends, especially the sparkle in her eye, her great grandson, Brayden. She was also the type of person that put everyone else first. She took care of us all in one way or another and was the most giving person we knew. She opened her home to many people in need over the years and never gave it a second thought. People that knew her also knew how strong she was. She was our rock providing strength to us all. If you knew Phyllis you knew she had an incredible sense of humor and an infectious laugh that was sure to bring out the best in us all. Some of Phyllis’ hobbies included her regular Friday night card games with her husband and friends, walking around and people watching at the flea market, and also her Sunday night bingo games. Phyllis was loved beyond measure and will be dearly missed. To honor Phyllis’ wishes, a private family service will be held.


Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
