Phoebe Ephron (née Wolkind; January 26, 1914 – October 13, 1971) was an American playwright and screenwriter, who often worked with Henry Ephron, her husband, whom she wed in 1934.

Wolkind was born in New York City to Louis and Kate (née Lautkin) Wolkind, a dress manufacturer.[1][2] She was active as a writer from the early 1940s through the early 1960s. Her four daughters – Nora Ephron, Delia Ephron, Hallie Ephron and Amy Ephron – all became writers, like their parents.

She died in 1971, aged 57, in her native New York City.
