Phyllis Phillips (Rasmussen)

August 10, 1934 - October 5, 2014


Phyllis Phillips passed away peacefully at home on Sunday October 5th, 2014 at the age of 80.

Phyllis or Foo or Grandma are the names she was called by her family. Phyllis had an opinion on everything and was never lost for a word. She was the rock of our family. She first got cancer in 1996 and her life would forever change as the doctors gave her three months to live. She didn’t t think much of their timeline and let them know it. She lasted another 18 years and spent her time with her grandchildren Bella, Ryan, Brandon and Nathaniel. She loved golf, skiing, playing bridge with her dear friends and Casinos plus she loved to cook. She enjoyed parts of Buddhism and wouldn’t t let us kill a fly or spider in the house she would just have them removed. She had a live and let live philosophy. Her sense of humor never left her ,in June the Doctors called the family together to say good bye to her in the hospital and  in August she said she was so embarrassed because everyone one is coming to see her and she was supposed to be dead . Martin, her husband of 57 years never left her side since she was first diagnosed with cancer, many of those years was spent sitting in a chair at the hospital by her bed until someone told him it was time to leave. Till the end he was the first thing she saw in the morning and the last thing she saw before heading to heaven. We all know Grandma is going to heaven but I think someone should have called ahead and warned them. At least the angels won t be lost because Foo will be telling them where to go.

Phyllis is survived by her loving husband Martin, son Mark and daughter Carla and grandchildren Bella, Brandon, Nathaniel and Ryan and her sisters Louise and Joanne.
