Phyllis A. Manville Depin 85, of Tiverton, daughter of the late Phillip R. Manville and Catherine (O’Neil) Manville, passed away peacefully on Sunday, September 13, 2020, at John Clarke Nursing Center, Middletown.

Phyllis was a graduate of Mt. Saint Mary’s Academy, Fall River, where she made many lifelong friends. Phyllis then went into the insurance field starting with the Travelers Insurance Co. She continued in the industry and eventually became the owner and operator of the former B. McDermott Insurance Agency in Fall River for over 35 years before her retirement. 

Phyllis will be sadly missed by her daughter and best friend, Patrice A. Depin of Tiverton. She also leaves behind her son, Robert P. Depin (wife Lynne), and grandson Bradley Depin of Portsmouth; grandson Ryan A. Reynolds, who had a very special place in her heart, and his wife (Kathryn Wicus-Reynolds), and great-grandson Talon E. Reynolds, all of Burnaby, B.C., Canada.

Phyllis leaves a sister, Judith (Manville)Theroux of Southborough Mass., and a niece, Katelyn B. Mello of Providence, along with several other nieces, nephews and cousins.

She was the sister of the late Arlene (Manville) Mello.

The family would like to thank the administration and dedicated staff of The John Clarke Retirement Center in Middletown for the outstanding care and professional services throughout her stay there.

In lieu of flowers, kindly send donations to The John Clarke Retirement Center Attention: Activities Residents Fund, 600 Valley Rd. Middletown, R.I. 02842.
