With sad hearts we regret to announce the passing of our mom Phyllis Fry. Phyllis was born in Hearts Delight in 1933. While living in Montreal she had five beautiful children. In 1978 she moved home and for twenty years she worked at Woolco/Walmart. After retiring, she started volunteering at Blood services, 50 plus club and St. John’s seniors club. Her volunteering continued until she was well into her 80s.
Phyllis can be described as an outgoing, kind, caring, loving and generous woman. As soon as you met her you were family. She was so much fun to be around and lived life to the fullest. She loved to dance and was active in aerobics at the Mews Center. Phyllis took a special interest in astrology. She appreciated a wide variety of music, even the interesting choices of her grandchildren. Her outlook on life is an inspiration for all who knew her.
Family was her foremost pride and joy. She wholeheartedly loved her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Very important to her was her parish and church family at Saint Michael and All Angels.
Predeceased by her son, Brian Fry (Colleen); brothers, Maxwell Sooley (Dorothy) and Clarence Sooley; sister, Viola “Audry” Sooley; father, Bertrum Sooley; mother, Elizabeth Ann; sister-in-law, Sheila Sooley; and brother-in-law, Harrison Fry (Annie/Madelyn).
