PHYLLIS AMOS (nee SCOTT) Sadly, we regret to inform you of Phyllis' passing in the arms of her nieces on June 27, 2012. A much loved sister, aunt, cousin and friend. Phyllis was born in Boissevain, Manitoba on May 26, 1924, the second of five children. She was predeceased by her parents: Russell George and Margaret Irene (nee Donley), and sister, Shirley Thompson (nee Scott). Phyllis is survived by siblings; Margaret Murchison, George Scott, Dorothy Scott, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. Phyllis chose a teaching career at an early age, which encompassed many different locations: starting in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Northern Ontario and settling in Toronto. In addition, her teachings brought her to London, England; Ethiopia and China. Phyllis was a world traveler; there wasn't much of the world that Phyllis hadn't left her footprints. She was considered to be an inspiration to her many students. A memorial service was recently held in Toronto, with a private family service to be held in Boissevain at a later date. The family would like to thank - Maria for her years of dedication and friendship; Joyce for administering health care and friendship, Gail who was always there for her - our sincere gratitude, we can never thank you enough; the Coates'- five generations of unending dedication and friendship over the years, Smart Staffing (Toronto), Toronto Grace-Complex Continuing Care staff; and Christie Gardens Palliative Care staff. Phyllis was a true humanitarian, and in keeping with her generous nature, in lieu of flowers donations may be made to a charity of your choice.
