July 24, 1934 - September 23, 2013
Phyllis Lister, beloved wife of John (Jack), passed away after succumbing to complications associated with ALS. For the past year and a half Phyllis bravely faced each day with incredible strength and humor as the disease slowly took control of her life. Her extended family and many friends meant everything to her and she was grateful for the overflowing fountain of love and support that was showered upon her. She will be deeply missed by the love of her life and her husband of 57 years, Jack Lister; son Dean Lister (Fong); daughter Wendy Keegan (David Senyk); and her four grandchildren Jeffery, Lian, Stephen and Alan. The family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to the compassionate care Phyllis received from the ALS Society and the Palliative and Home Care teams. A Celebration of Phyllis' Life will be held in the Chapel of EDEN BROOK FUNERAL HOME on Monday, September 30, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. If so desired, a memorial donation may be made directly to the ALS Society. Condolences may be forwarded to the family by visiting www.edenbrookcemetery.ca. Arrangements entrusted to EDEN BROOK FUNERAL HOME and RECEPTION CENTRE, 24223 Township Road 242, Calgary, AB (17 Avenue S.W. and Lower Springbank Road).
