February 14, 1926 - July 26, 2018

Phyllis LeTourneau of Lynnfield passed away peacefully at the age of 92 on July 26, 2018 surrounded by her loving family.  Born and raised in Revere, MA, she was the daughter of the late Leonard and Catherine (Darone) Radway. She was the beloved wife of 69 years of the late Gerard LeTourneau, devoted and loving mother of Kathrine LeTourneau and partner Kathleen McGerigle of Wellfleet, Deborah Bastable and husband Philip of Hanover, and Jerine Martin and husband Scott of Lynnfield, proud grandmother of Cheryn Byron and husband Michael of Hingham, Lindsay Bastable of South Boston, and Brandon Lemieux of Lynnfield, adoring great grandmother of Emery, Callan, Grady and Griffin Byron, and dear sister of Vita, Arnold and Tony Radway all of Lynnfield.  She is also survived by many loving nieces and nephews. Phyllis was ahead of her time concerning women’s roles in society. In the 1950s, she opened and worked at her own hot dog stand on Revere Beach, which was one of her favorite places in the world having grown up just down the road. In addition to being a homemaker and mother, she was proud to be a policewoman in her home town of Lynnfield and working security for TSA at Logan Airport. She further served her community by volunteering in the Lynnfield Public Schools and as a Camp Fire Girls leader. She was a wonderful cook and loved to feed everyone who came to visit. People were drawn to Phyllis because of her outgoing personality and infectious smile. She made friends wherever she went, from the local grocery store to Hawaii. Many of these became lifelong friendships. Phyllis, known as “Ma” to everyone, was a kind and generous woman who, despite her diminutive stature, will be remembered by all as “larger than life.” She adored her family above all else and always put them first. Times spent surrounded by her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren were the most special to her. Her laughter, humming, and daily phone conversations will be missed by all who were blessed to experience them.
