Phoebe was an avid reader, gardener, crafter and traveler. Over the past few years, she traveled all over the country in her RV while keeping in touch with her grandsons who tracked her on the map, and she would tell them stories of her travels over facetime. From mechanical failures to bad weather, there wasn’t a thing Phoebe couldn’t handle out there on the road. She also rode motorcycles, bicycles, went on cruises with her family and more. She was adventurous to say the least. She was very proud of her time spent involved in the VFW Women’s Auxiliary where she was President at one time.
Born in Pottstown, PA, Phoebe spent her childhood living in Framingham, MA. She had a very successful career in commercial insurance before retiring to Bristol, NH for a while then moving to Ocala, FL where she was able to spend time with her parents and look after them. In all the places she lived and spent time, she made wonderful friends. She was well loved by many. She will be remembered for her kindness and generosity. She was always quick to help those in need and did it with such grace.
