Phoebe was an amazing cook and chef, working for many years for the Seaman’s Inn Mystic. She enjoyed cooking for her family, especially desserts like apple pie and blueberry cupcakes along with other tasty treats. Gardening was a passion of hers focusing on growing African Violets and numerous other flowers. She loved all animals from pets to wildlife. And in her later years, she never passed up the opportunity to play Bingo at The Westerly Senior Center. Phoebe had a wonderful sense of humor and enjoyed joking around with her coworkers and friends. Most importantly, she was so grateful for the help she received from her family and friends. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
