She was the loving and devoted wife of the late George Michael O'Donnell for over 50 years. Phyl is survived by her loving sister Audrey Bertrand and her many nieces and nephews including, Susan Fisher, Nancy Brulé, Brenda Lawton, Suzanne Villeneuve, David and Steven McConnery, Michele Villeneuve and Kelly Harley; and many grandnieces and nephews who were a large part of Phyl's life. She is the beloved daughter of the late Winnifred Lowden and the late Andrew Villeneuve and is predeceased by her brothers Andrew and Harry and sister Dorothy McConnery. Phyl and her husband George spent over 40 happy years at their cottage at Danford Lake, Quebec. Phyl's wonderful outlook on life and sense of humour has helped her through the last few years. A very special thank you to Anne-Marie Hillier for providing such warm companionship to Phyl and to St. Vincent's hospital for their compassionate care.
