Philomena “Phil” Yuhas, 91, of Crestwood, NY entered Heaven’s Gates on Palm Sunday, April 5, 2020. Born on May 17, 1928 in Kingston, NY to her late parents Angelina and Vincent Sassone. She was the beloved wife to Edward R. Yuhas with whom she shared 58 years of marriage. Phil was a graduate of Hunter College with a degree in Chemistry. She went on to work at various companies in the chemical industry culminating in the Precision Valve Corporation in Yonkers where she met her husband Edward. After her marriage, Phil’s finest career became that of a wife, mother and homemaker, all of which she excelled.

A loving mother and grandmother, Phil was happiest when surrounded by her kids and grandkids, especially during the holidays which she always made extra memorable! Her biggest smiles were when she was surrounded by her grandkids playing in the pool and barbequing with the family in the backyard. She was always ready to share a bite to eat or a cup of coffee with friends, family and neighbors as she was always up for and enjoyed a good chat. Phil also took great pride in being part of the Crestwood community and its social events. She loved her Annunciation Church family, attending weekly mass and Ladies of Charity events. And Phil was known to be on the go whether it was delivering Avon, running a quick errand, attending a luncheon, or getting her nails done. The one weekly event she enjoyed most was the “brunch and bowl” at Homefield Bowl with her husband Ed.

Phil also had a penchant for travel. She and her husband traveled to many countries during their 58 years of marriage including trips to England, Ireland, Scotland, Portugal, Spain, Hungary, Russia and China to name a few. Phil and her family also spent a memorable summer in Italy and Switzerland visiting her many relatives and historic landmarks. In recent years Phil and Ed spent time every winter in the Dominican Republic where they enjoyed the warm weather and hospitality. Phil’s other great passion was her love for animals, welcoming countless pets into her home to the delight of her family. Her favorites were always her dogs, with her first dog Kringle, then Cyrano, Max, Heidi, Shannon and her daughter Suzanne’s pup Willow.

Philomena is survived by her devoted husband Edward R., loving children - son Edward V., daughters Suzanne and Pamela, and five cherished grandchildren - Michael, Ian and Claudia (Corry), Sarah and Alexander (Wink). She is also survived by her sister Linda Sassone, and her four beloved nieces.

She is being laid to rest at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Yonkers, NY. Any messages and memories to Philomena and her family can be left on A mass and memorial event will be held at a later date to celebrate Phil’s life well lived!

My heart broke when Phil's daughter, Suzanne, told me the news. Suzanne and I have been friends for over 30 years. Christmas 2019 at Phil & Ed’s home, I was gifted to watch Phil joke around with Suzanne in the laundry room, enjoy TV with her husband Ed, cook sauce with Claudia and laugh with Michael & Ian. Later on, Suzanne and I sat talking away in a fully decorated living room, where Christmas stockings still hung for each of Phil’s children, impeccably wrapped presents waited under the tree and enough Christmas trinkets were sprinkled around to exhaust anyone who thought about cleaning them up after the holidays. While I was quietly daunted by the holiday display, Phil came by and let me know she still put sheets on her own bed. Her hair was impeccable, her stamina inspiring and her movements ever graceful as she touched us all. Her son, Ed, stopped by from work, just to be sure to say hello. Her grandchildren sat and talked with Suzanne and I. Everyone cared about each other. Love filled the air and I was humbled by this beautiful family. My deepest, heartfelt sympathies to ALL of you, especially to Ed, Ed, Suzanne, Pam, Claudia, Michael & Ian. Phil will certainly be missed, but her essence has clearly been infused in those of us left behind.

As someone mentioned before she was always dressed like she was going someplace special & wonderful & every hair in place. She was a very special person & I will miss her. May she R.I.P. Ed & family may all the wonderful memories you have help you through this very difficult time. Elaine DiGilio

We have known Phil as our neighbor for over 40 years. Our fondest memories was Phil surrounded by her grandchildren and the laughter coming from her backyard. As grandparents now we only hope we can have that magic relationship with our grandkids that Phil had with hers. Rest is peace good friend.
