Gladys Marion Sivorot

April 9, 1933 - June 8, 2012


Former Kimberley resident, Gladys Sivorot, passed away peacefully on Friday, June 8, 2012 at 8:50 pm at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital. Her final days were spent surrounded by her family and friends.

At her request, no funeral service will be held. A memorial gathering will be held at a later date.

Gladys Sivorot was born on April 9, 1933 in Invermere and raised in Wilmer, BC. Gladys”s parents were Charles and Evelyn Franson and she had five siblings, Hilda, Norman, Shirley, Albert and Ronnie.

After moving to Kimberley, Gladys met Clair John Sivorot. They were married in Kimberley at the United Church in December 1957. Together they raised three children, Colleen, Danny and Michael.

Gladys was very artistic, crafty and inventive. Her determined nature kept her active and busy. Her interests in life included watercolour paintings, gardening, sewing, crocheting and baking. She had a passion for a thrift store find, garage sales and antiques. She enjoyed and looked forward to visits from her family and friends. In 2007, Gladys sold the family homestead in Kimberley and moved to Cranbrook to be closer to her family.

She was predeceased by her husband Clair on September 29, 1987 (52) and her dear grandson, David Michael Sivorot on March 21, 1989 (6).

Gladys is survived by her first-born daughter Colleen Reif (nee Sivorot) of Cranbrook, her eldest son Danny Sivorot (wife Linda) of Cranbrook and her youngest son Michael Sivorot (wife Emily) of Malott, Washington, USA. Her grandchildren, Christie (Evan) of Wainwright, Alberta, Sara of Cranbrook, Tyson of Calgary, Alberta, Nicholas, Sarina, Antoniette and Jenelle – all of Washington, USA and her many nieces and nephews.

Deep in our hearts your memory is kept to love, cherish and never forget. Until we meet again . . . .

The family would like to thank all the nurses in palliative care at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital for their kind help and support.
