MONSON, Olive: It is with great sadness that we inform you of our dear mothers passing, Olive Camilla Monson of Kyle, Sask, after a short but brave battle with cancer. She passed away peacefully May 4th 2012 at the Kyle Health Center at the age of 68. The service was held May 10th 2012 at Horse Butte Luthern Church, a small community church 5 miles south of Kyle, at 11:00 am, with interment services at Memorial Gardens Cemetery in Swift Current. Student Pastor Jay Lutz officiated, with Keith Sveum and Gordon Gustavson being ushers, Daryl Denning giving the eulogy, and her beloved grandchildren, Kendall Day, Mitchell Day, Style Stenberg, and Tyvan Stenberg, being the pallbearers. Olive was survived by her sisters Nancy (Alvin) Hughes of Surrey, B. C., Mildred Denning (Granville Moreside) of Kyle, Sask, Emma "Florence" Sveum of Saskatoon, May Dam of Kyle, and Elsie Monson of Kyle, her children, Connie (Keith) Day of Lacadena, Sk, Penny (Boyd) Stenberg of Assiniboia, SK. Blaine Monson of Saskatoon, her grand children Kendall Day and Mitchell Day of Lacadena, Style Stenberg of Vancouver B. C., and Tyvan Stenberg of Assiniboia SK., and many, many beloved nieces and nephews. Olive was predeceased by her father Oliver Sveum, stepfather Robert Thomson, beloved husband Bernard Monson, brothers Kenneth Sveum, Lloyd Sveum, and Donald Sveum, her mother Camilla Thomson, nephew Randy Sveum and her grandson Dallas Day. Olive was born May 10th 1943 in Tuberose Saskatchewan, just north of Kyle to Oliver and Camilla Sveum. She attended school at WeetSlade and White Bear schools in her youth, and SIAST in Moose Jaw later in her life where she received her cooking diploma, which lead to her getting her red seal journeyman cook papers. Olive retired in 2006 after many jobs in nursing homes as a cook, including Luther Sunset Home, St. Anns Home, and lastly Stensrude Lodge. Olive loved to cook throughout her life even as she was helping her mother on the cook car in her early life. She also enjoyed baking, handicrafts, and occasionally singing old favourites off the radio. Olive will be sadly missed but we all know she is in a better place now. In her memory, donations to the Kyle Health Center will be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Warren's Funeral Home in care of arrangements.
