Elin Phillips, 88 years young, was born in Gimli , Manitoba in 1928, the daughter of Icelandic settlers. Elin met her husband Oliver (Sonny) Phillips, during his RCAF posting in Gimli. They moved back to Gananoque in 1946 and she immediately fell in love with the town, the Thousand Islands and its people.
Elin’s main role in life was mother to 12 children, but her son says, “Somehow she found time to pursue one of her other true loves, poetry. Over the years a number of her poems have been published, for people to enjoy.”
She currently resides in Gananoque, where family and friends visit often.
