Gilmore, Phyllis M. (Ostrander)  
Phyllis M. (Ostrander) Gilmore, age 89, of Windsor Locks, passed away after a long illness on June 21, 2015. Born in Kingston, New York, Phyllis moved to Windsor Locks with her husband, Charlie, in 1952. She "adopted" and acted as a second mother to sister Barbara Carsten's sons, her godson John and Michael, navigating trips to the Bronx and to Boston to show them there were baseball teams (Boston Red Sox) other than Charlie's beloved Yankees, and hosting many family meals and holidays. She made great fudge! Phyl retired after a long career as a switchboard operator and receptionist - the face of Sweet Life Foods in Suffield, where she remembered every single solicitor, contractor and employee who she met, many who celebrated her retirement at one of the largest parties anyone in the family had been to. After spending 15 years of retirement in Florida, she returned to Windsor Locks to live with best friend and sister, Barbara Carstens, and the two lived together in Windsor Locks for many years. Phyllis was predeceased by her husband, Charlie; sisters Betty Dee and Barbara Carstens; and leaves behind three nieces and three nephews who cherished her as the "favorite aunt." A graveside service will held at 1 p.m. Friday, June 26, at Grove Cemetery in Windsor Locks. Donations in Phyllis's memory may be made to The Windsor Locks Food Shelf, c/o Town Hall, 50 Church St., Windsor Locks, CT 06096.
