(nee MORMAL)
January 13, 1938 - January 28, 2021

Following a 13 year journey with Alzheimer's, our Mom and Grandma passed away peacefully at her longtime residence of Concordia Place care home.
Her loss is deeply felt by her son Garnet (Lynn), daughter Tanis; grandchildren, Marissa, Cassie, Joy, Grace, Luke; and her only sister Connie (Joe). She will also be missed by many relatives and friends. She was predeceased by her loving husband Myron, in 2015.
Mom was born in Molson, Manitoba and following her move to Winnipeg, she married the love of her life in 1959.
Mom worked in the accounting department at Eaton's for nine years before welcoming her children into their warm and loving family. She dedicated herself solely to their upbringing, and was a steadfast volunteer for many years. Later in her life, she was fortunate to discover a marvellous "work family" at Penner Foods. When Myron retired, wanting to spend summers at the cottage north of Gimli, and all winter at their place in Texas, he had to work hard to convince her to retire with him.
Mom was a proud member of Grey Street United Church for many years. She created handicrafts that many family and friends have on their Christmas trees and in our homes. She and Myron adored all kinds of dancing. She enjoyed setting puzzles, sudoku and baking. Her lucky family relished her creations.
Mom's commitment to make the world a better place can be best described in this quote "Life is good when you are happy; but much better when others are happy because of you."
Heartfelt thanks to all of the incredible staff at Concordia Place. For almost six years you became part of our family. We will never forget your kindnesses.
An immediate family service was held February 8. An interment of both Phyllis and Myron together took place at Golden Bay cemetery.
Donations may be graciously made to Concordia Foundation: CP Recreation in Phyllis' memory.

Condolences & Memories (9 entries)

  • Grace, Joy, Luke, Marissa and Cassie. Sadly you have lost a very important and loving grandma. You all have my sincere and deepest sympathy. I cannot stress enough how much she loved her four beautiful granddaughters and her handsome grandson Luke. She lived for you guys. To Grace, Joy and Luke, babysitting you was one of my great pleasures, telling you stories, going for walks and watching the bond between you and your grandma grow as she always put your needs before her own. She was an extremely hard worker and a very talented woman. (Your friend a.k.a. Grandma Belle) - Posted by: Isabelle Choquette (Babysitter and friend) on: Feb 16, 2021

  • Garnet, Lynn, Tanis and to your children. Know that Romeo and I are saddened at your loss and offer our deepest condolences. Phyllis always told us that her family - children and grandchildren were the greatest gifts God had bestowed upon her. Phyllis had a sincere way of connecting with people and leaving a lasting impression on those she met. We first met her at Line dance classes then met Myron when he joined her for couple dancing. After they returned from their winter vacations, they taught us new games like Sequence and Dominoes. We spent hours playing those games and attending Old Time dances in Oak Bluff and throughout Manitoba. We often took turns hosting an evening meal. Phyllis was a great hostess and her baking and cooking were unsurpassed. We loved both her and Myron and will never forget them. - Posted by: Isabelle and Romeo Choquette (Friends) on: Feb 16, 2021
