Phyllis Catherine Sherwood (nee Cullen)

Phyllis Sherwood was born September 27, 1938 in Dublin,

Ireland and passed away at the Vernon Jubilee Hospital

December 21, 2008 at the age of 70. She will be lovingly

remembered by her sons Michael (Robyn) Sherwood and Mark

(Jen) Sherwood, grandchildren Kadence, Paige and Hayden all

of Enderby; sisters Anne Crabb and Lucy Cullen of Vancouver,

Mary Anna Middlekoop of London, Ontario and brother Tom Cullen of Dun Laoghaire,

Ireland. Also missing Phyllis are her sister-in-law Rose Cullen of London, Ontario and

several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents, and brothers Michael

and Seamus. She immigrated to London, Ontario in 1962, and met and married Dave

Sherwood, eventually moving west to Armstrong to raise her boys. Her later years were

spent in Vancouver where she worked and enjoyed city life with her dear sisters and

friends. She returned to the Okanagan to rejoice in the arrival of her grandchildren.

Part of Phyllis’ heart was always with her family and friends in Ireland, she excelled in

ballroom dancing in her younger days and loved music throughout her life. Her quick,

colourful wit was so enjoyed by family and friends and she touched many people with

her kindness and special way. A celebration of life will be held in the autumn of 2009

to honour her, for more details please contact robynsherwood@hotmail.com. Donations

may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.

An Irish Blessing

May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

May the rains fall soft upon your fi elds,

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
