Farewell to Phyllis Baxter. Stalwart and loyal hard working member of Ottery’s community

Friday, 28 September 2018 0 Comments by Claire

I was really sorry to hear of the sad passing of Phyllis Baxter last week.

Phyllis was an absolute stalwart. Hard working and committed to the town, she was always cheerful and enthusiastic and did what she could to help promote the town and its causes.

I first met Phyllis when she was Tourist Information Centre manager many years ago. I was touched by her passion for Ottery, her lively sense of humour and her ability to take really wonderful photographs.

Ottery has lost one of its most valiant supporters.

May she rest in peace.
