Sorry to hear about the loss of your dear mother and grandmother. I loved Auntie Phyllis and remember many good times we shared together. We stayed at your place alot and often went to the Chorneys, Moschanskis and Kuzminskis. I loved going to Sprucefield store, playing "Do you know the muffin man" and eating fruit cocktail. She is in God's memory, a safe place to be. My sincere sympathy. Love, Lily

My deepest condolences to your family. Heaven truly got another angel.
I really got to know your mom well when we lived in the same apartment building on Fort Road. Her wicket sense of humor made my transition to the "big city" much easier. Over the years our families have intertwined, and it is sad to realize the passing of that generation. They really took the time to have fun and enjoy visits with each other.
My deepest sympathy.

Such sad news. What a gem Aunt Phyllis was! We loved spending time at the Waskatetaneu farm - so many fond memories that we cherish to this day. The many times she would come and visit us in Redwater with Paul. She always had something delicious to eat when we would stop in and visit her in Redwater. Wish I had visited her more in these last days. Our visit with her at Adam’s wedding was memorable and enjoyable! May the many memories ease the sting of death and lighten your days. Sincerest condolences and warmest love to all family and friends. 🤗🤗🤗❤️❤️❤️

I will always have fond memories of Auntie Phyllis during my childhood years when living around the farmstead near Waskatetaneu. She would always have time for you and talk to you. Auntie would arrange and pick-up players with her Big Chrysler New Yorker and off to the games, we all did go. After moving away to Lethbridge way back in the early 70s I would always want to come back for a few weeks in the summer months and stay at the farm and hang out with the wonderful cousins and friends and see the old billy goat and offer him a vegetable from the garden when no one was watching, lol. Auntie was very competitive and would play a great card game, I often think of those days and imagine the memory of Uncle Rudolph and Auntie Phyllis usually playing cribbage at the table in the old house on the farm after dinner. I will always remember the shock and sadness when Uncle Rudolph passed, and now I feel the same way to hear of Auntie Phyllis's passing. She was a nice Auntie and I thank her for that. May God bless her and protect her family and friends.
Best Regards, and Cheers to Auntie!

I'm so saddened to hear about the loss of my Aunty Phyllis. Sending heartfelt condolences to all the family and especially my cousins Barbara and Barry.
She was the aunt in my life with whom I shared things I couldn't even with my own mom while I was a teenager and I found such great comfort in her loving presence, kindness and shoulder at that time. I also remember visits to her home as a youth and it was a pleasure to get out of the city to the Kuzminski 'homestead' where our family was always greeted with Love, companionship and......great food! And one year.....a cat who came home to Edmonton with us!

It's the end of an era with all the Dukewich sisters now having passed on. I can feel Aunty Phyllis's warm smiling shining down on us all.

Blessings, Corinne
