On June 22, 2021 at age 86, Phyllis Blanche Shaughnessy (Vokes) passed away peacefully in Mount Morris, NY surrounded by her loving family. Phyllis was born to Dalton and Elizabeth Vokes (Green) on August 10, 1934 in Batavia, NY. She was raised in Caledonia where she met her husband Thomas Patrick Shaughnessy and the two were married on August 20th, 1955. Together, they raised a loving family of six children in Caledonia. Phyllis spent 15 plus years as Religious Education Coordinator of St. Columba Parish in Caledonia. She enjoyed teaching children about her faith and was loved by her students and fellow teachers. Phyllis was a creative soul who enjoyed writing poetry and keeping a journal. She authored a novel, a book of poems, many Caledonia Variety Shows and the yearly Shaughnessy Family Picture Album, enjoyed by all each Christmas. She enjoyed her gardens, crafts, and music. Phyllis lovingly supported and cared for Tom who had MS for 50 years. She would say her most precious gift was her family and she never missed an opportunity to let them know how loved they were.

She will be dearly missed by many.
