BUGDEN, Phyllis
Born In: Corner Brook, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada
Born: October 5th, 1935
Passed in: Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, United States
Passed on: May 14th, 2014

The family of the late Phyllis Bugden regret to announce her death in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on May 14, 2014.
Phyllis was born in Corner Brook in 1935, the youngest of three. She survived her two sisters, Betty Johnson and Ethel Gillard. She went to school in the public school system in Corner Brook, and later to the Grace Nursing School in St. John's where she did not finish her program, but instead met an American serviceman, Gerard Roy, whom she married, and moved with him to Springfield, Massachusetts, where they raised two daughters, Karen and Kimberly. Gerard died in 1975.
Phyllis attended Holyoke College in Massachusetts. She worked for many years for the Hamden County Sheriff's Department, where she dealt daily with hardened criminals. She retired in 1989.
Phyllis never forgot her Newfoundland home and family. She loved animals, and raised many a Newfoundland puppy. Her dog and cats were as human and important to her as her daughters and their families and her Newfoundland sisters and their families.
Phyllis returned to Newfoundland to live in 1996. She married Lloyd Bugden, a childhood friend from Corner Brook, in 1998. When Lloyd died, Phyllis moved to Kelligrews to be closer to her sister, Ethel. Phyllis loved to shop, to garden, and to bake. In 2012, after Ethel died, she moved her Newfoundland dog and her three cats back to the U.S. to be closer to her daughters, but she never gave up the thought of returning to Newfoundland.
Phyllis is mourned by her Newfoundland family, her sister-in-law and good friend, Shirley Bugden, her brother-in-law, Rexworth Gillard, her nieces and nephews and their spouses, Glenda and Keith Bartlett, Paula and Roger Barnsley, Glenn Gillard and Gaynor Rowe, and Paul Gillard and Gayle Garber. Phyllis' beloved pets will be cared for by her daughter, Kim. Her ashes will be scattered at the home of her daughter Kim, which she loved and where she will forever be at peace.
