It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Phyllis C. Sawyer who was born in Newport, VT on July 5, 1931 to Arthur A. Sawyer and Ruth (Hardy) Sawyer of Claremont, NH.

Phyllis resided in Stoddard, NH, for over 60 years and was an avid supporter of her community and Stoddard Congregational Church. Phyllis enjoyed going to the Maine Coast with her family, starting in her younger years, and continued throughout her adult life. She loved walking Marginal Way, a beautiful trail that wanders along the ocean in Ogunquit, ME. Phyllis was full of life. She was fun to be with, upbeat, laughing, playing, and making the best of times with friends and family. She loved spending her winters in Bonita Springs, FL, making many friends while participating in park activities such as softball, horseshoes, fishing, Mardi Gras and karaoke. She truly enjoyed life, especially her beloved Red Sox and has a brick in Fenway Park.

Phyllis was predeceased by her parents; and her brothers: John Sawyer, Hardy Sawyer, and Reginald Sawyer.

She is survived by her companion Karen Cushing and several nieces and nephews.

Phyllis requested there be no services. She will be buried with her parents in Claremont, NH, at a later date.


  • In keeping with Phyllis' wishes, there will be no services

So sad at the loss of Phyllis. I will miss our phone conversations, her laughter and our shared memories of Johnny. I am sure he was waiting to welcome her. I will hold them both in my heart with love always.

I will miss seeing your smile. You loved life and lived it to the fullest. I will miss the Friday night dinners we shared with our group in Citrus Park. You made my life richer for having met you and you will never be forgotten. Rest in peace.
