CALAIS ? Phyllis Elizabeth Fielder, 89, passed away peacefully on September 28, 2013 in Robbinston. Phyllis was born to Thomas and Reva (Beek) McGraw on September 2, 1924 in Calais where she spent her childhood.
She stayed in the Calais area and worked at local stores after graduating from Calais Academy until she married Floyd Coons. Together they moved to Wisconsin where they raised their three children until Floyd?s untimely death in April of 1962.
Phyllis returned to Calais where she eventually met Allen Fielder, with whom she married in 1969.

Phyllis was an avid Red Sox Fan and loved the Greenbay Packers. She enjoyed playing cards, cribbage and pitch and was very active with senior groups while in New Hampshire. After Allen death in 2012 Phyllis moved back to Calais to be closer to her family.
In addition to her parents and her first and second husband, Phyllis was predeceased by her son, Philip Coons; stepson, Dan Fielder; two sisters, Marjorie and Dorothy and her brother, Blair McGraw.
