Phoebe Alice (Tillinghast) Donnelly was the fourth child of William Elmer and Mary Eliza (Rankin) Tillinghast. She married Francis John "Frank" Donnelly on November 26, 1924, in Providence, Rhode Island. They had five children: Francis John Donnelly Jr., Bernard Edward Donnelly, Carolyn Mary (Donnelly) Maroney, Marion Alice (Donnelly) McGrath, and Mary Edith (Donnelly) Manera.

Phoebe was a petit woman and lived her life to the fullest. She loved to shop and going out with her daughter Carolyn on their weekly luncheons.

She once told this author that the greatest event during her life time was the addition of electricity to her childhood home.

Phoebe spent many years working for the Trifari Jewelry Company. In her senior years she worked for her daughter Marion as a "Sandwich Maker" at the daycare children's center, The Carriage House, which is located in Cranston, Rhode Island.

Phoebe, my mother Carolyn, and I enjoyed traveling throughout Rhode Island, on our many genealogical day trips, to many cities and town halls, cemeteries, genealogical societies, meeting lost relatives, and so much more. Phoebe is a direct descendent of George Soule (8th great-grandfather) who was one of the original signers of the Mayflower Compact.

We all miss you grandmother and love you dearly.
