Phebe dedicated her life and love to her family. While raising four children, she also cared for 5 foster children. She cared for and loved these babies as if they were her own. Phebe then decided to have another child and Phebe A. was born, and that completed her life.

From the day I was born to the day she left , Gram was the soul of our family. She was warm, loving, forgiving and sassy. I will miss her smile and laugh. And I will be reminded of her during every holiday but also when having a social cup of coffee, when twirling my own hair, baking, seeing sunflowers and anything Irish. Her love is in all of us, and she will be in my heart forever.

Kevin, Jack, Maureen, Phebe,
Whenever I would run into your mom and dad while out and about, we always had such a nice conversation. Your mom was a very warm, easy person to be around and I enjoyed our encounters very much. She is reunited with her husband and son, Henry, now. My sympathies to you and your families.
