Diggs, Phyllis M



Phyllis M. (Mabardy) Diggs, a longtime resident of Malden, passed away in Melrose on Sept 4th, 2016. Phyllis was born in Medford in 1937, the daughter of Louis and Vera (Bedell) Mabardy. She was a graduate of Medford High School with the Class of 1955. In 1959, she married her sweetheart, James V. Diggs, and the two settled down together to raise their family. They shared 57 years of marriage together until James’ passing in 2013. Once the youngest of her 5 children was in school, Phyllis began working in Dining Services at Tufts University. She worked there for 30 years, retiring in 2005. Phyllis was an avid reader, and enjoyed playing bingo, but her most treasured time was spent taking care of the children and grandchildren. As long as Phyllis was around family, she was happy.
She is survived by her children, James V. Diggs of Malden, Robert L. and wife Deborah of Malden, Patricia A. Fiorino and husband Peter of Malden, William M. Diggs of Malden, and Michael E. Diggs and wife Pamela of Saugus,  her grandchildren, James and William, and her great granddaughter, Gemma.
Phyllis was preceded in death by her husband James V. Diggs Sr, and her brother Harold D. Mabardy, and her sister Carolyn Armstrong
