Phyllis Roberta Faith Marlow
January 30th, 1944 – November 18th, 2022
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, Phyllis Roberta Faith Marlow (née: Clark) on Friday, November 18th, 2022 at the age of 78 years. She was a loving mother, stepmother, mother-in-law, proud grandmother, great-grandmother, devoted sister, aunt, cousin and caring friend. Phyllis’ outgoing and spunky personality, as well as her sarcastic sense of humour, brought smiles to all who were fortunate to know her. Her heart of gold extended to the animal kingdom as well, being known to rescue and care for abandoned birds, stray cats and the neighbourhood squirrels.
Phyllis was born in Halifax, NS and lived in various locations throughout her life, finally settling in Moose Jaw, SK in 1987. She was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion, enjoyed teaching paper tole, was proud of her various fundraising efforts with local community groups, and maintained a strong social circle of friends.
She was predeceased by her parents, Philip and Laura Clark; brother, Robert; daughter, Velvet; step-daughter-in-law, Ava; and her devoted and loving husband, Richard. Phyllis will be lovingly remembered by her sons: Walter (Gillian) Coxe, Phillip (Joanne) Coxe, Richard (Melissa) Coxe, and Kevin (Crystal) Coxe; stepchildren, Bill Marlow and Patricia (Ken) Shields; sister, Maureen White; grandchildren: Brittany, Denis, Tina, Rebekah, Shaylah, Aidan, Alexandria, Kierra, Kaden, Trevor, Amy, Logan, Layne and Tennessee; as well as numerous great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and friends.
At Phyllis’s request there will be no formal funeral service. A come and go gathering to celebrate Phyllis’ life will be held on Saturday, December 3rd, 2022 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. in the Social Hall at Zion United Church, 423 Main St N, Moose Jaw, SK. A private interment will take place for the family at a later date. Flowers are gratefully declined. As an expression of sympathy, memorial contributions may be made in Phyllis’ name to the Royal Canadian Legion Poppy Fund, 268 High St W, Moose Jaw, SK S6H 1S8.
