Peacefully at Jessica’s House on June 29, 2022, Phyllis Haugh of Exeter at the age of 90. Beloved wife of the late Lorne Haugh for 68 years. Loving mother of Larry and Lorie Haugh of London. Proud grandmother of Mallory Craigmile, Lauren Craigmile and Tony Renda. Great grandmother of Oliver Renda. Dear sister and sister-in-law of Merv and Sandy Taylor, Diane Taylor and Joyce and Mike Burke. Loving daughter of the late Reta McBride and Bill Taylor. Predeceased by brothers Stuart Taylor (Junette), Bob Taylor, and brother-in-law Ross Haugh (Irene).
Phyllis grew up on the family farm on the Goshen Line, north of Zurich, where she attended Zurich Public School. During her high school years in Exeter, the family moved to a farm across from the Exeter cemetery, where she was excited to have indoor plumbing! When she and Lorne married, they bought a house on Carling Street that they called home for 68 years. Phyllis had a long career with Dashwood Industries, and she also worked at Fairbairn’s, grading eggs, as well as Tuckey Beverages. She was a great hockey and baseball mom, and an avid bowler in her own right. A proud charter and life member of Exeter Lioness, Phyllis had many dear friends and great times. She will be missed.
A private graveside service will be held at the Exeter Cemetery. Donations to Jessica’s House, or South Huron Hospital Foundation would be appreciated.
