Phelanda (Phil) Hall
It is with sad hearts we announce the death of Phelanda (Phil) Hall (nee Serran) on May 3,2021.
Phil died at home, surrounded by family. She was predeceased by her parents Charles and Annie Serran (nee Shushack) and her brother William.
She is survived by her sons Richard (Fran) and Glen (Stephen Westfall), her grandchildren Alexandra (Ross), Elana (Stephan) and Anthony and great grandson Miles. She will be deeply missed by her sisters Margaret Peplinskie, Gertrude Pecarskie and Viola Cybulski and her many nieces and nephews.
Phelanda lived in Bowmanville and more recently Courtice for the past 51 years. She attended St. Therese Catholic Church and was a 25-year member of the Catholic Women’s League at St. Joseph the Worker in Oshawa.
After working for more than 20 years she retired from Hillsdale Retirement Homes in 1995. Phil was a welcoming host, a pet lover and an avid gardener who spent many hours perfecting her lovely backyard garden. She enjoyed the company of her friends and family and enjoyed sharing a wonderful meal followed by a game of cards.
As an expression of sympathy masses can be offered at St. Therese Catholic Church in Courtice, St. Joseph the Worker in Oshawa and St. Lawrence O’Toole in Barry’s Bay.
A heartfelt thank you to Mom’s neighbours especially Marg, Tom and Maureen, Sue, Shane and John & Family, to the Saint Elizabeth staff and in particular Jennifer whom Mom loved dearly, to her first palliative nurse Elisha – hope your back is on the mend, to nurse Damian for all of her kindness, to Tracy, Mom’s palliative nurse to the end - you will always be part of our family, to the Para-Med staff, to her medical team, Doctors Missiha, Lowenthal, Niglas and Osborne and all of the other medical practitioners for their compassionate care, to Father Daniel for his prayers and home visits, to Aunt Viola, Cousin Susan and all of our family members whose loving support was so appreciated.
Last but not least, to Stephen Westfall. Without him we would have been lost. He gave us the courage and strength to have Mom at home which was her wish. For this we will be forever grateful.
