Phyllis was a dedicated nurse working for many years at the Colchester Regional Hospital, Truro. She was often referred to as the comforting voice you woke up to in the recovery room. She was a natural humanitarian, opening her home and her heart to anyone in need. Her baking and cooking were legendary and consoled many families as they went through hard times. She enjoyed camping, fishing and swimming and was one to keep busy feeding and mothering her five girls and their friends. Her children and grandchildren continue to share the legend of her baking and cooking and of the unforgettable compassion she held for all. The family would like to extend their sincere gratitude to the staff of Shannex Vimy Court who cared for her during her time there as a resident. Arrangements have been entrusted to Colchester Community Funeral Home, 512 Willow St., Truro. A memorial service will be held at a later date with interment to follow in Robie St. Cemetery.
