In memory of
PHYLLIS EILEEN COWPER
PHYLLIS EILEEN COWPER In her 92nd year, peacefully on Sunday, October 9, 2016 at the Norview Lodge in Simcoe. Beloved wife of the late Arthur Cowper. Loving mother of Richard (Mary Anne), Michael, Lee and Lynn Rini. Cherished grandmother of Brittany, Danielle, Joseph, Madison, Michael, Nicole and Robyn and great-grandmother of Cache, Landon and Kylie. She was predeceased by her sister Doris and brother Arthur. Phyllis was born in Gloucestershire, England to parents Amelia and Ernest Whiting and was married there to Arthur Cowper of the Royal Air Force. She arrived in Canada during the early 1950s. Arthur was employed by Avro Aircraft and subsequently by Wardair Canada. Phyllis made her home in Downsview for more than 50 years, a devoted wife and mother whose passion was lovingly taking care of her family over the duration of her long lifetime; she was always an enthusiastic gardener and a keen observer of local bird life. She was employed by Canada Post, both in Downsview and later in Mississauga. Phyllis's family wishes to extend most sincere thanks and appreciation to the staff of Norview Lodge for the outstanding care and kindness they extended to Phyllis during her stay there. Friends are invited to meet with the family on Friday, October 14, 2016 from 1 - 2 p.m. at THE BALDOCK FUNERAL HOME, 96 Norfolk St. N., Simcoe, where a celebration of her life will be held at 2 p.m. Cremation has taken place and interment will be held at Westside Cemetery, North York at a later date.
