Phyllis Frazier James, 77, of Madison, MD, passed away with her family by her side on Monday, June 2, 2014 at Chesapeake Woods Center, Cambridge.

She worked in senior care with nursing homes in southern Maryland and then in Cambridge.

After over 30 years in the field she retired from nursing to pursue her second career as a real estate broker. She, along with her husband Ed, operated Phyllis James and Associates since 1987. Phyllis continued in the business until her health began to fail. She was a very kind person who loved to help people. During her careers she had helped so many in many ways. Her caring way, her smiling face and her grand personality will be missed by family and friends alike.

She was a member of Madison Volunteer Fire Company, VFW Post 7460, B.P.O. Elks #1272, and the Dorchester Board of Realtors serving as President.

Heather Collison For 30 this woman watched me grow up, she saw me become the woman I am today she showed me how to be strong, independent, and how to love god and she showed me that a woman can be both loving and powerful at the same time.
