Phyllis was born on December 12, 1931 in Lynn, MA, the daughter of Lillian (Lavin) and Everett Watson. She attended English High School in Lynn and married Frederick W. Yeaton on March 31, 1952. They and their four children subsequently relocated to New Hampshire and ultimately settled in the Nashua area. In 1988 they moved to Palm Bay, FL area where they enjoyed making new friends and the warm weather. They celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with family and friends in March, 2002.

Shortly after Fred died in November 2003, Phyllis moved to the D'Youville Senior Care Center in Lowell, MA. When not reading true crime novels or playing bingo, Phyllis was active in and President of the Red Hat Society at D'Youville and a representative of the nursing home residents on the D'Youville President's Council. Many of the staff fondly remember how she entertained everyone with her witty remarks, and they will miss her. The family would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to D'Youville and more recently, New England Hospice, for the loving care they provided to her over the past 11 years.

Phyllis is survived by her daughter, Pam Morin and her husband, Mike, of Londonderry, NH; her son Paul Yeaton and his wife, Denise, of North Hampton, NH; her son Peter Yeaton and his wife, Rev, of North, SC; her daughter, Holly Courtemanche and her husband, Brian, of Dracut, MA; six grandchildren and many great grandchildren.

In addition to her husband, mother and father, Phyllis was predeceased by her brother, Chester Watson and his wife, Rose, of Falmouth, MA. Although our family is heartbroken by our loss, Phyllis endured many serious illnesses throughout her life, and we take comfort in knowing that she is in a better place and reunited with those who have gone before her.

There will be no calling hours, however, a Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Wednesday, April 1 at Saint John XXIII Church in Nashua, NH at 10 am. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in Phyllis' name to D'Youville Senior Care Center, 981 Varnum Avenue, Lowell, MA 01854
