Not sure what to say?

Phoebe and I were Tri Delta sorority sisters at the University of Kentucky. We were able to reconnect a few years ago through a mutual Vermont DAR friend, Eleanor Brodeur. Phoebe lived a life of service to her family and community, and she will be missed.

Condolences to the Bryan family. I always enjoyed seeing Phoebe at the auction house in Williston. She had beautiful taste in art and antiques. She was witty and always very kind to me. Sending you all wishes of peace from Seattle.

We are sorry to hear about Phoebe.

Dear Alden ,

We were sorry to learn the Phoebe had died.

She was an intelligent person and unique woman.

We shared many interests over the years and I can't remember where I met her in Vermont.

I shall always remember happy times at the Mallett's Bay Boat Club.

Sincerely, Kay & Richard Ryder

Phoebe,Kick back and Enjoy the Heavenly ride with Mint Julip in hand. Phoebe I was Blessed to have met You and Alden many Moons ago.My Heart is with You and your Family. See Ya Later Phoebe.

I missed Phoebe at this year's Bryan Gallery openings. I will miss the quiet and thoughtful conversations we shared over the years. My sincere condolences to her family.

So sad to hear about Phoebe's passing. I remember all the times she came to her grandchildren's performances and to school events. She would whisper something funny and spot-on in my ear, and we would laugh. Phoebe was a great reader and recommended so many wonderful books (now many of my absolute favorites). Here's to Three Pines Phoebe!

Much love to the Bryan family,
Lisa Espenshade
