During her career, Joyce was committed to her profession and clients deeply, working for a range of national psychiatric and mental health institutions and with patients in private practice later in her career.
Joyce was a lifelong tennis player and accomplished gardener.
Her late father was killed during The War while serving with the British Armed Forces. Her favorite projects were chairing the designer committee of “Upton Pyne – A Mansion in May” and serving as Chair of “Giralda – A Mansion in May.” These projects raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the hospital, received national recognition, and attracted high profile attendees such as First Lady Betty Ford.
Eldred later traveled extensively to South America and then the United States, where she met and married David Erdman of Princeton, in 1958. Phyllis also served on the Board of Morristown Memorial Hospital and The Peck School. They celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary in 2010 before he died.
Born in Wilmington, Delaware, Joyce was a longtime resident of Princeton, New Jersey, moving to New Hope, Pennsylvania in 2013.
She was an accomplished psychiatric social worker specializing in couples and family therapy.
