We Remember

Rampone, Phyllis

It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Phyllis Ellen Rampone on February 15th, 2014.  Phyllis was born June 17, 1927 in Victoria BC to Eric and Martha (Binnie) Holland. She was predeceased by her beloved brother Ronald Holland.  With a traveler’s heart, she embraced what life had to offer and never shied away from new experiences.  Phyllis will be greatly missed by her husband, Louis, with whom she enjoyed 66 years of marriage.  Her memory will live on in the hearts of her children Carol Black (and husband Gordon), Donna McCardell (and husband Gary), and Ron Rampone (and wife Sue); her grandchildren Ryan McCardell (and wife Shawna), Courtney Ford, Eric Rampone (Alisa), and Josh Rampone, step grandsons, Nathan  Black (and wife Shannon) Jonathan Black (and wife Jenn); two great grandchildren Elijah and Tristan Ford; six step great grandchildren Amy; Gibson; Erin; Cassidy; Nicole and Garrett Black and her many lifelong friends.  During her years in Kelowna, Phyllis served on the Kelowna General Hospital Board and was president of the hospital auxiliary. She loved gardening and her weekly bridge games.  Phyllis lived for her family and friends and truly enjoyed spending time with them.  From days spent at her cottage to nights of entertaining, Phyllis never stopped doing the things she loved.

A Memorial Mass will be held on Friday, February 21st at 2:00 PM at   Immaculate Conception Church, 839 Sutherland Ave, Kelowna BC.  Reception to follow. If desired, donations can be made in Phyllis’ name to the Kelowna General Hospital Foundation, 2268 Pandosy Street, Kelowna, BC, V1Y 1T2.

    Phyllis and I were the last direct Holland descendants of our branch of the Holland family. Her death leaves a huge hole in all our families. She was like a sister to me in spirit and the wonderful memories of our times together help to ease the pain of her passing. To Carol, Donna, Ron and families our sincere condolences. Our lives have all been made richer by her presence in them. I am so sorry that I cannot be there to say good bye in person but am there in spirit.

  • Declan O'Sullivan says:

    Louis and the Rampone Family,
    I was greatly saddened to hear that Phyllis had passed away so suddenly. We spoke a few weeks ago and she mentioned how much she missed Kaye’s presence in her life. We promised to get together when I returned to Kelowna at the end of March.
    I have very fond memories of many salmon fests, flavoured by Rampone applewood, in McKinley, Winfield and Kelowna over the years. They were great times.
    Knowing Phyllis,I’m sure she is resting in peace in the presence of the Lord and praying for us.
    Declan O’Sullivan,
