I had the Privilege of knowing Phylis first as a caregiver, then as a friend. I adored Phylis we shopped together and did crafts and had a love of dogs! Especially Teddy! She will be missed so much,I loved her like a mother and a close friend. Happy she will be with Len but will be missed dearly 😢.

I have had the pleasure to know Phyllis Potvin and her family for over 20Years . We shared holidays together , birthday's and every other celebratory event. Phyllis dedicated everyday to her kids and husband ,they were truly town people of of our city Plymouth Ma. Len ( her husband who passed 10 Yrs ago) and her would do there errands and there nightly drives everyday , occasionally stop at Mc Donald's for an ice cream and go home. Phyllis was at her best when everyone was around her. She never cared how many people were at her and Len's home. One of her favorite times was shopping for her grandchildren for Christmas. It always took her a lot of time to wrap all her presents. I was not a member of her immediate family , but we I know I was her friend as she was mine. Phyllis , I Love You , I will miss you and I will never forget you, Your friend for ever, Ann Gordon
