Phyllis Conrad

September 19, 1939 — September 12, 2017

Phyllis Jane (Mauro) Conrad, died peacefully on Tuesday, September 12, 2017, in her home in Albuquerque surrounded by her family. Phyllis was born on September 19, 1939, in Boulder, Colorado, and raised in Ojo Caliente, New Mexico. She attended Santa Fe High School with her life-long friend, Bobbi (Howell) Hine. She later attended college at New Mexico State and began a career in education.  She taught in Ranchos de Taos, Las Cruces, and Albuquerque.  While teaching in Taos, she met her husband of 53 years, Duane Conrad.  She was a devoted mother, raising her two children Lynn and Don. Phyllis was a member of the Delta Zeta sorority, and had served as President of TOPS. She opened her heart to many children and animals over the years as she assisted at places like All Faiths Receiving Home, Friends Feeding Friends, and the Animal Humane Society.  Phyllis loved spending time with her family and friends and had a fondness for sitting around the table playing board games with them.  She took great pride in her children and grandchildren.  She will be missed by many.

Phyllis was preceded in death by her parents Philip and Dorothy Mauro, and brother Ron Mauro.  She is survived by her husband, Duane Conrad; children, Lynn Leninger (Bill), and Don Conrad of Albuquerque; grandchildren, Grace, JoEllen, and Kajan Leninger; brother Mike Mauro (Angelina) of White Rock; niece and nephew Mariah and Zachary Mauro; her uncle George Mauro of Albuquerque; numerous cousins; and exceptional friends Bob and Bobbi Hine.
