MITCHELL, Phyllis Glenn (BRICE) Peacefully and with wonderful care at the Glebe Centre on November 13, 2017 at the age of 96. Born in Toronto on August 16, 1921, she is survived by her son Brian (Gisele) and grandchildren Sarah and Robbie, and by the family of her late sister Carol (Richard), her nieces Christine, Mary Ann and Karen. Phyllis graduated as a dental assistant from the University of Toronto and later trained as a medical records librarian, and worked in hospitals in Toronto, London and Ottawa. Phyllis loved travel and adventure, and during World War II this led her to serve with the Red Cross Overseas in London, England from 1944-45. Later in life she enjoyed travelling to faraway places with her husband of 50 years, the late George "Duff" Mitchell. A woman of deep faith, she was an active and giving member of Anglican communities in Ste-Agathe-des-Monts, Quebec (Holy Trinity Church) and in Ottawa (St. George's).
