Wexford People - - NEWS OBITUARIES -

THERE was wide­spread sad­ness in Wex­ford at the re­cent pass­ing of Phyl­lis Wilde (nee Cre­ane) of 14 Cor­ish Park, Wex­ford.

Phyl­lis died peace­fully, sur­rounded by her fam­ily, in the won­der­ful care of Knoc­k­een Nurs­ing Home on Thurs­day 26th April 2018 where she had been re­sid­ing for the pre­vi­ous 11 months.

Phyl­lis was born in 1932, one of nine chil­dren of Tom and Bri­die Cre­ane.

As a young woman she worked in English’s, a publishing com­pany based in Wex­ford. Phyl­lis and her sis­ter Betty also spent some time work­ing in a board­ing school in Eng­land.

On her re­turn to Wex­ford Phyl­lis met her fu­ture hus­band Tony and they were mar­ried in 1952. The cou­ple en­joyed 58 years to­gether un­til Tony passed away in 2010.

The cou­ple set­tled in Cor­ish Park where Phyl­lis de­voted her life to rear­ing her fam­ily. They were very proud of their fam­ily and left a no­table legacy of seven daugh­ters, one son, eigh­teen grand­chil­dren and five great-grand­chil­dren.

Phyl­lis was a tal­ented seam­stress and she en­joyed cook­ing and bak­ing, much to the de­light of her chil­dren and grand­chil­dren.

She was a very pri­vate per­son and de­voted her life to her fam­ily. She es­pe­cially en­joyed the daily vis­its of friends and rel­a­tives who shared a chat with her over a cup of tea.

Phyl­lis is sur­vived and sadly missed by her daugh­ters; Theresa, Betty, An­nette, Geral­dine, Dolores, Eileen and Jennifer, her son An­thony, her son­sin-law, daugh­ter-in-law, her beloved grand­chil­dren and great-grand­chil­dren, and by her broth­ers Ger­ald, Tommy, Colm and Michael and her sis­ter Betty Donovan.

She was pre­de­ceased by her hus­band Tony and by her sis­ters; Terry, Molly and Brenda.

Phyl­lis was laid to rest in St Ibar’s Ceme­tery, Crosstown af­ter funeral mass in Clonard Church. The Month’s Mind Mass will take place in Clonard Church on Satur­day, May 26 at 6 pm.

Ar dheis lámh Dé go raibh a h-anam dílis.
