Phyllis McLeod

Phyllis Elizabeth McLeod (nee Lucas), age 85, passed away

peacefully into the presence of her Lord and Saviour, Jesus

Christ, on April 27, 2008 in Vernon, British Columbia.

Phyllis will be dearly missed by Bruce, her loving husband

of over 60 years, and her four sons: Ian (Pauline); Kevin

(Jean); Roderick and Robert. She is also survived by 5

cherished grandchildren: Sarah Rehill (Shawn); Kathleen

Etherington (Marc); Heather Ardron (Brad); Duncan McLeod;

Jenna McLeod; 5 great grandchildren: Tristan, Gavyn,

Ava, Mersaia and Gwendolyn; sister: Doreen McMillan

(Ken); brothers: Gordon Lucas, David (Margaret) Lucas, and

numerous nieces and nephews.

Phyllis was born and raised in rural Saskatchewan and

following a brief stint working for the Australian Consulate in

Washington, D. C. during the war, she and Bruce settled in

London, Ontario where they raised their family until moving

to Vernon in the late 1980’s. Phyllis was an avid reader of

fi ne literature, but was comforted most through regular reading

and devotion of the scriptures. In her quiet moments,

Phyllis entertained herself and others by playing all time

popular music of the 40s and 50s on her piano. Phyllis had

a quick wit and was a formidable and hilarious player of

Scrabble. She was a devoted wife and mother to the very

day of her passing. We are all very thankful to have been

blessed by her sense of care and love.

The family wish to extend their heartfelt thanks and appreciation

to the caring staff of Vernon Jubilee Hospital and

to the excellent care provided by her physician, Dr. David

Naismith.

Friends and family are planning a celebration of Phyllis’ life

to be announced at a later date. In lieu of fl owers and other

tributes, people are encouraged to make a donation to the

Vernon Jubilee Hospital.

Cremation arrangements are in the care of:

Vernon Funeral Home
