  2. I wish to express my sympathy to Phyllis’s family. Phyllis and George were good friends of my parents Ken and Mary Ross and enjoyed many happy times together including some memorable trips to Maui. Phyllis was a warm and kind person and I always enjoyed chatting with her when we met.

    Phyllis was my favourite person to visit at the Mckenzie Towne Residence. I’ve been volunteering there for the last 3-4 years and got to spend a lot of time with her. I knew she wouldn’t be around forever and I was always happy to see her “one more time” overtime I got to go in. She really loved the picture on the wall that her father had given to her and I also enjoyed just sitting with her in silence enjoying the picture as well. I consider my life to have been enriched by sitting with her and just sharing stories. I’m going to miss her.
