Spencer (Benedict), Phyllis Maude - 89 of Summerville, it is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our beloved family matriarch, surrounded by her loved ones. Born in Riverside on April 20th, 1932, she was the daughter of the late Raymond and Myrtle Alice (Sanford) Benedict.
Phyllis was a meticulous and hard-working woman. From her early years working as a nurse aid caring for patients, to her own children and family; she was a compassionate and kind spirit. She was always a comfort to those around her.
She is survived by her husband and best friend of 67 years, Ronald Spencer, her children Gary Spencer, Michael (Bonnie) Spencer, Jeffrey (Claire) Spencer, Darlene (Peter) Rourke, Monica (Fred) Johnson and Lynette (Brian) Wile; sisters Marguerite (Harold) Wile, Doris Lunn, Juanita (Donnie) Grimes; brother, Wayne Benedict. She was a proud grandmother of 12 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren.
Besides her parents, Phyllis is predeceased by her brothers Delbert, Wilbert, Stephen and Ronald Benedict.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to the nurses at the Hants Community Hospital Unit 200, Dr. Catherine Smith and Dr. Peggy Leighton for their care and compassion, as well as Garnet Parker, for words of comfort.
A celebration of life in memory of Phyllis will take place in April 2022 at Loyal Hill Cemetery, Summerville.
