Sept. 15, 1940- June 28, 2013
It is with profound sadness we announce the passing of Phyllis Elizabeth Erickson, a devoted wife of nearly fifty-four years, wonderful mother, sister, grandmother, aunt and friend.
Phyllis will be lovingly remembered and greatly missed by her husband Dan, daughter Deborah Seykora (Edward), sons: Keith (Barb), Norman (Bonnie) and James; granddaughters: Trisha, Haleigh, Cassidy, Montana, Emily and Sarah; great-granddaughter Sabrina and grandson Brendan. She is also survived by her three brothers: Gary, Dale (Susan) and Glen (Ida); sister Julie Isendoorn, and many nieces and nephews. Phyllis is predeceased by infant daughter Karin Lorraine, father Frederick, mother Violet, brother Bert and sisters Eileen and Lorraine.
Born in Park Valley, Saskatchewan, her family moved to Duncan in 1956. Marrying in 1959, Phyllis eventually settled with her family in 100 Mile House in 1979. A successful businesswoman and accomplished Chinese chef, she was well-known among family and friends for her many on-the-go projects and hobbies. A proud member and active volunteer for the Hospice Palliative Care Society, she also enjoyed the lapidary and genealogy clubs. Phyllis even found time to teach basic computer skills to interested seniors. She loved photography, painting flower pictures, crocheting, sewing and receiving frequent visits from her wild (pet) crow “Castro” and his little family.
We would like to thank the staff of 100 Mile House District Hospital and Hospice Palliative Care Society for the compassionate care she received, and the support given to our family.
A Memorial Service will take place at 11:00 a.m. at the Anglican Church Saturday, September 21, 2013. There will be a Luncheon to follow for family and friends to gather in Celebration of her Life.In lieu of flowers, please send a donation to the 100 Mile District Hospice Palliative Care Society, Bag 399, 100 Mile House, BC V0K 2E0.
