Obituary for Phyllis MacGregor

Phyllis MacGregor, longtime resident of Ludingtonville, Carmel, and Lake Carmel, passed away March 13 at the Paramount Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in Somers following a recent stroke. Phyllis was born in New York City on August 11, 1924 to Roy G. and Gertrude Bowman. Her father operated the Bowman Brothers Trucking Company in the Bronx and delivered steel and other supplies to many of the important construction projects and bridges in New York as it expanded into today’s major metropolis. Her brothers, Bob and Dick, became well-known in their respective fields—Bob as a doctor and researcher at the National Institutes of Health who invented one of the first medical fluorimeters and Dick as the Chief Aeronautical Engineer at Republic Aviation where many of the important World War II aircraft were developed. Phyllis was married to James MacGregor during World War II and in the 1950s after the war moved to her father’s summer house in Lake Carmel with her husband and son James. With her family’s help, they built her long-term home in Ludingtonville. After her divorce in the later 1950s she lived at her Ludingtonville house and worked for the Putnam County Department of Health for many years until moving to the Plaza at Clover Lake in Carmel in 2008. Phyllis is survived by her son Jim and has wife Judith, her granddaughter Jennifer MacGregor and her husband Jigar Shah and great granddaughter Adhira, and Jim and Judith’s foster son Robert MacGregor and his wife Scheherazade and their four children Alistair, Aidan, Asher, and Avery.
