Obituary for Phyllis Arlene Timmins

Phyllis Arlene Timmins Age 84 of Halifax, passed away on October 29, 2020, after a brief illness in QEII Infirmary Hospital, Halifax.
She was born in Green Harbour, Shelburne Co. on June 17, 1936, she was a daughter of the late Robert and Minnie (Veniot) Stewart.

Phyllis was baptized as a Jehovah's Witness and looked forward to God's promise of life on a paradise earth (Revelations 21:3,4). She enjoyed movies, music and going for drives. Her favourite movies were old classics and John Wayne westerns. John Wayne was one of her favourite actors. Phyllis loved country music especially the oldies like Kitty Wells and would sing her heart out. She loved spending time with her family and friends. One of her favourite things to do was going for a drive with Marilyn. They would stop at Tim Hortons to get a tea and sit and people watch. Phyllis was a bit of a back seat driver even though she never held a license. Phyllis had a bit of a sweet tooth that would put the cookie monster to shame. She had so much character, with her sass and mischievous nature that stayed with her until the very end.

She will always be loved and missed by children Edward (Salvina) Timmins Ontario, Elizabeth Clark Halifax, David (Cathy) Ontario, John (Frances) Timmins Ontario, Jim (Merja) Timmins Ontario, Frances Jean Timmins Ontario, Steve (Lynne) Timmins Ontario, her 22 grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren, 2 great-great-grandchildren, and her life long friend Marilyn Callahan. She was predeceased by her husband, Perry; siblings Jennie Jones, Edward Stewart, Uriah Stewart, Leafy Davis, Goldie Davis, Robert Stewart, St Clair Stewart, Gerald Stewart, Harvey Stewart, Perry Stewart.

Phyllis' family would like to thank the doctors and staff at the Halifax Infirmary Site of the QE11, for all of the care Phyllis was provided during her illness. We would also like to thank VON and Northwood HomeCare for all the care they provided.
