Phyllis LUTZ

In Loving Memory of Phyllis Eleanor

LUTZ. Nov 20, 1928 ~ Aug 24, 2011. It is with great sorrow we regret to announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend who went to be with other loved ones that have also left us. Phyllis was born and raised in Dauphin, Manitoba to Emerson and Ruby Brook. She moved to British Columbia to work and later met and married the love of her life Alfred Lutz. The couple settled in Port Coquitlam and raised their family. Phyllis had a special gift for entertaining guests. Everyone knew that Phyllis’ home was the place to find friends, conversation, and great food. In her life she enjoyed many things, including camping, visiting friends and family, and gardening. Phyllis also loved to crochet and spent many years working as an unofficial seamstress for a variety of people. In the second half of her life, Phyllis relocated to Armstrong to be closer to her children and extended family. Phyllis Lutz was predeceased by her father Emerson, her mother Ruby, brothers; Ron, Cliff, and Alvin, her sisters-in-law Verna and Eileen, and her beloved partner and friend Alfred. She will be greatly missed, but never forgotten by her son Randy (Cheryl) and their two sons; Kevin and Jerad, her daughter Cheryl (Gerry) Mathieson and their two daughters; Dayna Mathieson and Laura Hamilton, extended family daughter Ellen (Norm) Mathieson and their sons; Bill, Michael and Steven. Phyllis will also be remembered by her sisters; Gwen (Gib) Volk, Minnetta Brook, her brother Mervin Brook as well as countless nieces and nephews. The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff of Pleasant Valley Manor for their caring, compassion and special attention over the year. There will be a graveside service in Port Coquitlam, BC on Sept 3, 2011 at 12:30 pm.
