Phyllis (Goldsmith) Chorches, 89, recently of Clemmons, NC and formerly of Tolland, beloved wife of the late Leon Chorches, died Friday, January 8, 2016 in Winston-Salem, NC. Born in Hartford on April 2, 1926, the daughter of the late Benjamin and Rebecca (Opinsky) Goldsmith, Phyllis grew up and lived in Hartford. After marrying Leon in 1946, she quickly transitioned from city girl to country girl when they moved to Tolland, where they lived for most of her married life. Phyllis was a great neighbor and friend to her Tolland community and later Quail Hollow in Vernon. She was a PTO mom, 4-H leader, an avid reader and bridge player. She was an active member of Congregation B'nai Israel sisterhood and their bowling team. For many years, Phyllis comforted new arrivals as a volunteer at the Rockville Hospital Emergency Room and was part of the Hospital Auxiliary. She also valued being a board member of the Tolland Public Library. Phyllis loved travelling with Leon and often with friends. They loved their winter stays in Florida. She is survived by her daughters, Faith Kamins and husband Steven, Joan Rutledge and husband Dean, grandchildren, Brian Kamins and wife Reena, Adam Rutledge and wife Anne Marsh, and Sarah Shattuck and husband Alex. She held a special place for her great granddaughters, Hannah and Natalie Kamins, who she was fortunate to see recently. In addition to her husband and her parents, she was predeceased by her sister, Irene Cohen, and her brother-in-law, David Cohen. Graveside services will be held on Tuesday, January 12, 2016 at 2 p.m. in the Congregation B'nai Israel Cemetery, Edith Road, South Windsor. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Hole in the Wall Gang Fund, 555 Long Wharf Drive, Dept W, New Haven, CT 06511. Ladd-Turkington & Carmon Funeral Home in Vernon is caring for the arrangements.
