Relation: neighbour

I am saddened at the news of the passing of a kindred spirit. Phylis was an inspiration to me. Her complete love of her family and her passion for gardening, her sense of community and her friendship to her neighbour my mom Joan. I will miss our visits and will cherish the memories of our time spent together.

From: Mrs. Sheila Bachynski
Relation: Sister-in-law.

Bob, Tom, Mark and families I am so very sorry for the loss of your Mom and Grandma. She was a wonderful person whom I wish I had known better but always admired her for her determination and positive thoughts. Thankfully she went peacefully and without a long illness. Doubtful that I’ll be able to be with you for the memorial service but my deepest thoughts and prayers certainly will be. Love to you all, Auntie Sheila.

From: Linda Craig
Relation: Family

Dear Bob, Tom, Mark and families,
Mom phoned me last night to tell me of Auntie Phylis’s passing. I am so very sorry to hear and we all send our heartfelt sympathy to all of you. I have such good memories of our happy summers spent in Nelson with all of you and I will always cherish them – huckleberry picking, fishing, barbeques, picnics, late nights and very good times. Love to all from Bill, Linda, Reagan, Robyn, Auntie Jan and Laura xxxooo
