Phyllis McNamee September 16, 1918 - February 8, 2013
Violet Phyllis McNamee of Lethbridge, AB passed away on Friday, February 8, 2013 at the age of 94 Years.
Phyllis was born near Burton-on-Trent in England to Joseph and Katherine Cooper. The family immigrated in 1928 to a beautiful farm on the Tobique River near Plaster Rock, New Brunswick.
Phyllis was one of the first women to join the Canadian Navy during World War II. There she met her husband, Lorne McNamee. They established their home in BC, spending fifty-two years in North Vancouver.
Phyllis is lovingly remembered by her daughter, Gaynel Day (Jim), her son, Graham McNamee (Debra Sneddon), her grandchildren Morgan Day (Aaron Stout), Brooke Day (Antonia Rudgard), and Connor McNamee. Bringing her great joy in the past ten months were her great-grandsons Cooper and Dixon Stout.
Phyllis's family is grateful to the doctors and staff at St. Therese Villa for caring for our mother and grandma.
