Obituary

Phyllis E. George, 76, of Norwich, passed away Monday, April 15, 2019 at her home with family and Jack Russell dogs, Sammy and Teddy, at her side after a courageous fight with pancreatic cancer. She was a beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Phyllis’s final wish was to pass in the comfort of her home, which was made possible by Hospice of Chenango County, her children, and their spouses, each of whom stayed with her in her final months.

Family was everything to Phyllis. She was a homebody who enjoyed spending time with her family, grandchildren, and working outside in her gardens. Phyllis enjoyed attending her grandchildren’s sporting and dance events. She especially loved taking drives to Oneida Lake for family picnics and hosting family dinners. Phyllis enjoyed her home, which she spent many hours working on and making her special place. She often could be found puttering around her home and garden and doing home projects. Phyllis also enjoyed watching her TV shows with her two dogs by her side. She was known for her independence, sense of humor, and devotion to family.

Phyllis was a hard worker and was employed at Simmons Precision, BF Goodrich, and Unison for 34 years until her retirement in 2011. Following her retirement, Phyllis she was a devoted grandmother to her seven grandchildren who loved to come spend time with their “Grammy.” She was known as “Grammy” to all of her grandchildren’s friends who also came to visit regularly.

Phyllis was born on March 1, 1943 in New Berlin, NY, to Harold and Josephine Barker. She attended school in New Berlin. Phyllis was one of six children including brothers Stanley, Clyde, and Stuart, and sisters Betty and Hilda Barker. She was predeceased by her parents Harold Barker and Josephine Gibson, stepfather Lowell Gibson, brothers, Stan, Stuart, and Clyde Barker, and sister, Hilda. Phyllis also was predeceased by a son, James Andrew Cassidy, who died in infancy. She is survived by her children and spouses Michael (Jodie) George, of Norwich, Patricia (Michael) Gladstone, of Norwich, and Keith (Danette) George, of New Berlin. She is also survived by grandchildren Raven Brown, Matthew (Jerevy Bernard) Gladstone, Michael George, Dylan Gladstone, Brady George, Nathaniel George, Kyleigh George,; great-granddaughter, Madison Jade Gladstone; and special sister-n-law and friend, Betty Jean
Barker of New Berlin.

To honor Phyllis’ request, there will be no services or calling hours. Burial will take place at Fairview Cemetery in New Berlin at the convenience of the family. Phyllis’s family would like to thank Dr. Joseph Riedling, Chenango Hospice nurse, Nidia, and the staff of Chenango Hospice for their compassionate care.

Mom, we love you and we will see you at the other side of the stars! We will be looking for
your signs. Rest in peace. You will be missed and never forgotten.
