Phyllis Aileen HENDERSON (nee Abraham)

Phyllis Aileen Henderson

(nee Abraham)

Jan 12, 1912 – Apr. 21, 2015

Phyllis passed away peacefully in her sleep at Greenwoods Eldercare Facility, after a brief illness. She was 103 years young. Her family is very thankful for the excellent care Phyllis received while a resident at Greenwoods. She was predeceased by her husband of more than 50 years, Gerald Wilberforce Lundy Henderson (Bill).

Phyllis is lovingly remembered by her daughters Judy Henderson and Dr. Pamela Chart, and by her grandchildren Robert Eberhard, Kelly Rahiri (Eberhard), Edward Chart, and Meredith Guest (Chart). Phyllis is also survived by seven great grandchildren.

Phyllis led a full and productive life dedicated to her family. She was a fine golfer and was ladies captain at the Hamilton Golf and Country Club and a lifetime member of the Salt Spring Golf and Country Club. She loved Salt Spring Island from the time she and Bill retired there in 1972. She was well respected for her bridge playing and her crafts.

A private family internment is planned. Those wishing to make a charitable donation in her memory should do so to the Greenwoods Eldercare Foundation.
