Obituary for Phyllis Myrna Sutherland (Fisher)

Phyllis Myrna  Sutherland (Fisher)
Sutherland, Phyllis Myrna (Fisher) – age 96, Brookfield, passed away peacefully on April 29, 2020 in Elk Court with daughter, Myrna by her side and supported by granddaughter, Tracie, the previous day. Phyllis was born the youngest child of the late Burton and Adella (Fleck) Fisher. She was the much loved mother of Beverly (Earle) Woolaver and Myrna (Clif Kruck) Sutherland; grandmother of Tim (Raquel), Todd and Troy (Kate) Woolaver, Tracie (Kasey) Thomas, Kimberley (Paul) Tehonchuk and Julie (Shawn) Stewart; great grandmother to Tyler, Kaleb, Katie-Marie, Savanna and Bailey Woolaver, MacKenzie Boyle, Ruth and Alice Crawford-Thomas, Peter Tehonchuk (Ocean), Jillian and Benjamin Stewart; dear sister of Freda Sutherland and sister-in-law to Hugh Carter; many nieces and nephews. Besides her parents, Phyllis was predeceased by her husband, Elmer Sutherland in 2000; siblings, Clarence (Lois), Gerald (Kay), Bert (Daisy), Weldon (Frances), Rupert (Mary), Leon (Gwen) Fisher and Helen (Ira) McElhinney; brothers-in-law, Alex (Barbara), Clark (Verna), Allen, Arnold (Edna) Sutherland and sister-in-law, Audrey Carter. She was employed for many years at the Brookfield Bakery. Phyllis was a faithful adherent of Brookfield Baptist Church. She was an avid bowler well into her 80’s and active in local senior events. She loved to play cards and dominoes and enjoyed knitting dishcloths. The music of the “Fiddlers” was very special to her. Phyllis will be missed by all who knew her. Her family wishes to most sincerely thank all of her wonderful caregivers, the VON, who made it possible for her to stay in her apartment for so many years, the staff at Gables Lodge in Amherst, Vimy Court in Bible Hill and Elk Court in Brookfield. Due to COVID-19, a celebration of life service will be held at a later date. Memorial donations may be made to VON, your local Food Bank or Resident Council of Elk Court. Arrangements have been entrusted to Colchester Community Funeral Home, 512 Willow St., Truro. Expressions of sympathy may be sent to the family by visiting
