DUNLOP, Phyllis Marie
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our loving mother Phyllis Marie Dunlop, age 95, formerly of Florence, who passed away peacefully at the Northside Guest Home in North Sydney on February 13, 2017.
Born on March 1, 1921, she was the daughter of the late William and Clara (Binney) Morrison of Kempt Head.
Phyllis was a loving mother, sister, grandmother and great grandmother. She enjoyed socializing, cooking, knitting mittens for children in need and doing her word search puzzles while drinking her Tim Horton’s coffee and eating her favorite treats. She will always be remembered for her positive attitude and wonderful sense of humour.
