Phyllis had a great love for nature and the outdoors. In particular, she had a passion for birds, trees, and flowers. Phyllis immensely enjoyed traveling and had a strong connection with the Pacific Rim area, especially Cox Bay. Phyllis was an avid Bridge player and was also a regular volunteer at the Community Thrift Store in Surrey. Most of all Phyllis thoroughly enjoyed a sense of humor, laughter, and
time with her friends and family – She will be missed.
