Carlisle, Phyllis Marion

It is with sadness we announce the passing of our beloved mother Phyllis Marion Carlisle on May 27, 2021, at the Souris Personal Care Home.

Phyllis was born Feb 23, 1939 to John and Jennet Sheane, in the farmhouse located in the RM of Archie, Willen MB. She was one of six siblings, three brothers and two sisters.

After attending Roselea School she moved to Souris as a teenager in 1955 to gain employment. There she met and married former husband Gerald Carlisle in 1957. They raised 4 children together.

After a brief move to Nipigon ON then spending some years in Thompson MB, they returned to Souris in 1977, where they opened and operated “Jerry’s Foodmart”.

Mom took great pride in always having a beautiful yard, always having it full of flowers. She enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and playing a game of cards with family. In her retirement years she enjoyed attending church and having coffee with her friends.

She is survived by her 4 children & 7 grandchildren: sons Delwin, Randy (Shannon, granddaughter Crystal), Robert (Tess, grandchildren Rebecca, Richelle & Zak) & daughter Lori (grandchildren Shane, Savanna & Paul) plus 6 great grandchildren.

She is survived by her sisters Evelyn Mitchell and Alice Inkster and numerous relatives.

Due to the Covid 19 restrictions a private graveside funeral service will be held at the Souris & Glenwood Cemetery. In memory of Phyllis, donations may be made to the Souris Personal Care Home.

  5. I am so sorry for your loss. To lose someone so dear to us at any time is difficult, but more so during this time. May the love and care of God and others and the precious memories of your Mom carry you through this time. Although we did not see each other a lot, I so appreciated your Mom’s kindness, sense of humour and laugh. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  6. My heartfelt condolences to your family at this sad time. You will all miss her dearly. Hold the memories of her in your hearts forever.

  7. My Grams-Bear was a special lady.

    I have her to thank for my love of singing. We’d spend a lot of time at her organ singing hymns and songs from her book of golden oldies. Her voice was really beautiful, like the singers from the old classic musicals.

    Her home was always open to me. She’d feed me her staple foods: pizza buns and ants-on-a-log, and we’d play cards, or board games.

    Grams-Bear loved telling me stories, and I loved hearing them. She talked about her life growing up on a farm, her siblings, her parents. She’d get out the photo album and show me photos of my dad, my aunt and uncles, my cousins, and me. You could tell she was proud of us. She saved any newspaper clippings that even breathed a word of any of us.

    Grams-Bear really loved the church she went to, and she was a devoted Christian. I am incredibly grateful for her church and friends for giving her solace every Sunday. I’m sorry that you couldn’t say your goodbyes in person, but Dad (Randy) made sure to give her your messages of support and love.

    I also just want to give my endless gratitude to everyone at the personal care home where she spent her final days. You took excellent care of someone who was incredibly special to her family. You also offered incredible support to my dad and aunt during this time. The elderly deserve dignity and compassion, which your staff offered her in spades.

    Even though she is not here anymore, the memories she created in me will never leave.

  8. Condolences to the family of Phyllis on the loss of your Mom.
    Sincerely Doug & Helen
