Phyllis is predeceased by her parents; brother, Fred; and sisters, Audrey, Doreen, and Edna.

The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses in Unit 47 of Rockyview General Hospital for their compassion and efforts to aid her and the final care she received at Agape Hospice which brought comfort to her in her final hours.

Rest in peace Mom, you were loved.

The family will be spreading her ashes quietly in the mountains, that we all grew up visiting as a family.
