1927 – 2023

After a long and full life Phyllis passed away peacefully at the age of 95 at the Deer Lodge Centre where she resided for several years.
She was born on August 1927 in Oakburn, Manitoba where she spent her youth. At an early age she was employed at a creamery in Shoal Lake. In later years she indicated that this was a memorable time of her life. Eventually she moved to Winnipeg where she was employed as a seamstress in several clothing manufacturing establishments. At several of them she also served as a model when new fashions were being designed and prepared for manufacture. At another establishment she met her future husband, Steve. These establishments employed workers from all corners of the world with both pleasant and unpleasant experiences. Phyllis was a good listener, heard them all and related the humourous ones to her family.
Phyllis and Steve were married in 1969, but she continued to work until her retirement in 1997.
Phyllis was predeceased by her husband Steve in 2005, her parents, Marcella and Zacharko, brothers, Bill, Joseph, Nicholas and sisters, Mary (Tony), Rose (Alex), brother-in-law Mac Melnyk and nephew Ron Peleshok.
Left to cherish her memory are sisters, Elsie, Roxy, brother Walter and sisters-in-law, Sylvia, Joan and Diane as well as numerous nephews and nieces living across Canada and England.
Our sincerest thanks to the staff at Tower 3 Deer Lodge Centre for their love and care to make her stay as pleasant as possible.
A private family funeral service will take place.
