Barbara Ann Phlip (nee Miller)
October 5, 1927 – April 18, 2022
A Life Well Lived –
Peacefully, on Tuesday, April 18, 2022 in Picton, Prince Edward County, Ontario in her 95th year surrounded by her children, Douglas (Julie), Ann (Dick Pease), and Nancy, passing a year after Don, her life partner of 73 years. She loved holding court as “GG” at annual family gatherings in her beloved “Inwego” at Lac Superieur, Quebec with her six grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren. Barbara grew up in Montreal as an only child where she led a spirited youth, served in the Red Cross Volunteers, worked at Bell Canada, and then started her family. She raised her children in five cities before again returning to Toronto where she volunteered with the Grenfell Mission, later retiring to Lac Superieur and then to Picton. Barb continued to live in her home, along with her cat “Princess”, maintaining active engagement with her family and friends through the committed help of her daughter Nancy, extraordinary neighbours, Mame & Bill Franklin, and the aid of her wonderful PEC caregivers. Our mother will be remembered as a unique character, engaging, sometimes intellectually contrarian, but most memorable for the love of her family.
A private family gathering will be held later in Quebec. Arrangements entrusted to the Rushnell Funeral Home – Picton Chapel, 33 Main Street West, Picton (613-476-2450)
