Cameron; Phyllis Mary

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Phyllis Mary Cameron of Chilliwack BC. She passed away May 24, 2015 at the age of 83.

Phyllis was born in Wivenhoe, England in 1931. She was the daughter of the late Mark and Phyllis Dodd. In 1948 Phyllis immigrated to Sarnia, Ontario with her family. She met and married her sweetheart Harold Earnest Cameron (passed away 1991) in 1951. Together they had five children. Phyllis gave unconditional love to her children and their families. Elizabeth Ann Decher-(Bryan Wudrick), Thomas John (Margaret Pryde), William Edward (Anna), Michael James, Patricia Jane Hemenway (Steve).

Phyllis is survived by her brothers Mark (Joanne) Chris (Anita) and sister Sally Ann Scott and is predeceased by brothers Mike, Peter and Timothy. She will be lovingly remembered as “Nana” by her 12 grandchildren and 4 great grand children. Phyllis loved to travel and drove her car across Canada and the Southern United States many times. She enjoyed working in her garden taking care of the birds and animals in her back yard, doing New York Times crossword puzzles, and looked forward to her monthly get-together with her friends. The family would like to express their thanks and gratitude to Dr. Mark Mackenzie and the nursing staff at Chilliwack General Hospital.

A private family gathering will be at a later date. Phyllis is loved by all and will be dearly missed by her friends.
