Phyllis is predeceased by her parents, Charles and Phyllis Standbridge, her brother Mike Standbridge, her father-in-law Alvin Morgenstern, sister-in-law Edith Werbecky and brother-in-law, Gerald Morgenstern.
Phyllis’s life would seem too short to many, but those who were touched by her understood that the quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives. She loved her family and enjoyed spending as much time with them as she could. Her grandchildren and great-grand children brought her much joy and she loved family gatherings. Camping and wood-working were two of her favorite pass times, which she enjoyed with her family and friends.
The family wishes to thank the following: the staff at
C & C Wood Products, Kenworth and the Petro Pass card lock for their financial assistance during Phyllis and Ervins extended stay at St. Pauls hospital in Vancouver; family and friends for their support during the final days at the hospital and continued support after. We would also like to thank Clayton Funeral Directors for their compassion and patience during this time.
Her smile and warmth will be dearly missed and held in our hearts forever. Rest in Peace dear, Phyllis Lovingly remembered, always cherished Ervin, Cherie, & Velvet
