Despite living most of her life with a disability, Phyllis Cohn Smith always found time to volunteer and help others. She was instrumental in starting the volunteer program at the Detroit Medical Center’s Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan (RIM) and was one of the founding members of RIM’s Auxillary. She counseled patients, served on advisory boards, greeted patients and visitors and scheduled volunteers. Later, she volunteered at Detroit Receiving Hospital and the former Michigan Cancer Society, accumulating almost 10,000 hours of service. Smith was an avid bridge player, having won many local and regional tournaments. She was one of the American Contract Bridge League’s early Life Masters and their Honorary Member in 1972. Smith passed away April 24, 2003 at the age of 76.
