April 22, 1940 – January 23, 2023
In loving memory ~
Sadly we announce the passing of our beloved mother. Phyllis was 82 and passed away with her family by her side after a brave battle with organ failure due to complications from a heart attack. Survived by children; Shelly, Tracy, James, Becky; grandchildren; Brittany, Kristina, Toni, Tyler; great-grandchildren; Ahriya, Rhylee, Dane, Dax, Charlize, Alex, TJ. Phyllis was loved by all who knew her. Her kind smile, warm laugh and calm disposition will be dearly missed. A fabulous cook, baker and gardener, people often referred to her yard as Butchart Gardens. She loved birds, especially hummingbirds and had a knack for attracting various species to her yard. An amazingly strong and independent woman, raising four children, she always managed to put homegrown vegetables on the table. She gave fresh cut flowers, plant clippings and home baked goods to those she cared about.
Rest in peace Dear Mother,
you will live on forever in our hearts.
No service will be held. A private celebration of her life will take place in her home and garden. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Sooke Women’s Transition House in memory of Phyllis
