The woman who gave the Philadelphia Flyers their name and iconic logo has died at the age of 92.  Phyllis Snider Foreman was the sister of Flyers co-founder Ed Snider.  She came up with the name ‘Flyers’ shortly after her brother launched the team in 1966.  She also came up with the ‘winged P’ logo design the team uses to this day.  Snider Foreman died on April 11th in Washington after a battle with cancer, exactly four years to the day after the death of her brother Ed Snider.
