I am truly saddened by her passing. Phyllis was the only "mother" I have had for over 40 years after mine passed. She was strong and empathetic. She had high morals and standards which I have tried to live up to. She never let me down. I cherish the time we spent together. All my sympathy to her children and extended family.

Phyllis was a unique wife, parent and foster parent and a great friend. I had the honour of knowing her many years and I learned from her example. I will be eternally thankful for having had the privilege of sharing time on Earth with this wonderful lady. Jusqua La prochaine fois Phyllis.

Phyllis’s Family

I met Phyllis at the Swastika tree nursery. We planted trees for a few years. Phyllis lived on the farm at the time. A few years later when I was expecting twins, Phyllis and a few other women gave me a baby shower. Fun memories . I reconnected with Phyllis at her home in Englehart. I was pretty impressed with the pine and maple trees she had planted in the yard. A few times a year we had tea on her small porch and talked of gardening. Phyllis loved those tomato plants.
She alway spoke about her children and grandchildren with such love ,acknowledging how lucky she was to have them visit frequently.
Go to the angels Phyllis
