Condolences & Memories (10 entries)

  • Our thoughts and prayers go out to (Uncle) Jake on the loss of his beloved wife and lifelong partner (Auntie) Sylvia. Many wonderful memories of Auntie Sylvia attending family gatherings with her incredible zest for life and always more than a few laughs. She will be forever in our hearts.

  • I was so very happy to finally meet Sylvia after many years of hearing the wonderful stories that my Mom, Beverley McFee (Cowie) and her shared growing up. It was a wonderful surprise we pulled off for Mom’s 75th Birthday and Sylvia was just as excited to pull off a fast one on her long time friend too. They rekindled a friendship and our correspondence over the last 3-4 years allowed me to see the kind and thoughtful woman she was. So sorry for your loss Jake and family. - Posted by: Carla Chalifoux (Friend) on: Mar 15, 2021

  • When I think back - as far as I can remember as a young adult - I have so many fond memories of Sylvia ("Sylvi" as I've always called her), as we were totally inseparable at that time. Including moving to the big city to start out our new adventures together as early as age 17! We had a ton of fun rooming together with our other buddy Ellen. We were the three Musketeers always looking out for one another. Sylvi being the bravest always of us all. As we get older and life takes us down our next paths, Sylvi and I lost track of each other for awhile. But I can say how wonderful it was to reconnect again with her these last several years. Picking up where we left off, sharing our younger day stories once again, and laughing like we never skipped a beat. Enjoying re-familiarizing ourselves with one another and I being able to meet Jake. Sylvi had so many talents! An outgoing, generous and kind soul, stylish, always well-manicured, a great cook and even better baker. But overall - she was a true friend. I looked forward to our weekly morning conversations, and there were many. I was able to witness once again her amazing bravery as she battled her health. I will miss my dear friend deeply. Love to her family and Jake at this very sad time & always. May you rest in peace Sylvi. Bev - Posted by: Bev McFee (and Gina) (Dear Friend) on: Mar 15, 2021

  • To my sister and her husband Jake. Sylvia was amazing person who lived and gave back love to people in her life. She loved to bake, outdoors (nature), socialize with her friends. Was absolutely consumed by Ford products (caused many heated debates being a GM man). Its with great sadness that her life was taken so quickly from us. We will miss you greatly sister!!! - Posted by: Steve Shasko (Brother) on: Mar 13, 2021

  • Dear Jake and Family, We are so very sorry to hear of Sylvia's passing. She was so kind, generous and funny. She loved people, animals and life. It was so heartwarming to watch her with her animals, the love she gave them. I (Lorrie) have the fondest memories of her, horseback riding over to your place a mile and a half away. She always welcomed me with open arms, admiring my horse, sharing a fresh batch of cookies, talking and laughing. She truly was an amazing person. - Posted by: Lorrie (Granger) and Bernie Kratzer (Friend) on: Mar 13, 2021
