They moved to Yorkton, SK to a house on Maple Avenue and started their family in 1964. They later moved to their next house on 4th Avenue North to raise their four children.

Phyllis was known throughout the province for her artistry and was asked to give her pysanky to the Western Premier’s who were at a conference in Yorkton. Her egg was later put on display at the Saskatchewan Legislative Building in the library.

Auntie Phyllis was such an amazing woman. I had many lovely talks over the years with her. She always had such great advise!!! I took many things from her and took them to heart.
Auntie Phyllis, I love you and I am glad I got to talk to you a month before your passing. It truly gave me peace. Thank you for always cutting or perming my hair. You were the best hairdresser I have ever had!!
Love always and forever,
