Phyllis May GARWOOD

August 1, 1940September 4, 2019

Love of my life and best friend, Phyllis passed away in my arms as we enjoyed her discharge from almost two weeks of challenge against the range of assaults stemming from her Scleroderma. We kissed goodbye with a commitment to meet in the heavens. She is survived by her beloved husband Norman, of more than 60 years, with whom she shared some wonderful travels, including a Buckingham Palace garden party, where they were privileged to chat with her Majesty. Loving mother of Karen (Jim) and her late daughter Sharon (Anthony). Cherished grandmother of Andrew, Caroline and Victoria. A gathering will be held on Thursday, September 12, 2019 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Kane-Jerrett Funeral Home, 8088 Yonge St., Thornhill (south of Hwy 7). In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada.

Dear Norm, Karen and family

Very sorry to hear Phyllis has passed away. She was a good friend for many years. I will miss our chats on the phone. Lots of memories, I remember the times we actually went out bike riding in Chateauguay.

Dearest Mr G, Karen and family

There are many wonderful memories of Mrs G. One thought that always brings a smile and a chuckle is from my visit to the family in Dartmouth. I can still recall sitting at the kitchen table and Mrs G just slightly shaking her empty glass. Time for a refill.

The fondest of memories for me of Phyllis growing up. She was a terrific lady who I greatly admired. Thoughts to you all.

I have such great memories of Mrs. G and our time in Chateauguay (sitting around the BBQ in the backyard or at the kitchen table having a few drinks with my mom)! She was a wonderful friend to our family as was the whole Garwood family.

She will always be an important and fond memory from my childhood.
