We Remember

BRUCE, Phyllis J. (nee Smith)

— April 26, 2011

Passed away on April 26, 2011 in Kelowna, BC at the age of 93 years.  Phyllis is survived by her husband of 68 years, Charles, children Allan (Margo) of West Kelowna, Dennis of Sydney, Karen (Don) Bennison of Kelowna, and Leslee (Colin) Scott of Kelowna; seven grandchildren and nine great grandchildren.  She is also survived by two sisters: twin Kay Senay of Grand Forks and Bunny Smith of Dawson Creek, as well as many loving nieces and nephews.  Phyllis was a very active, vibrant person.  In Kelowna, Revelstoke and Kamloops, she was a leader in the artistic community, inspiring others to find their talent.  Her wonderful paintings will be a cherished legacy.  Over the years she was also a curler, skier, and golfer (until her 89th year).  In her early years in Kelowna, she was active in Kinettes and the Kinette Choir.  In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation to the Canadian Hard of Hearing Association (BC Chapter) www.chha.ca or the Canadian Red Cross www.canadianredcross.ca.
This is the day that the Lord has made
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
