After a long struggle with cancer, May Nadie Siver passed away peacefully on September 4, 2012 in the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice Home, in Kamloops, at the age of 78 years.
May is survived by her husband of 56 years Lloyd and their 3 children Sheryl (Ed) Lindquist, Carmen (Brad) Hiebert and Brooke; five grandchildren Jon, Laura, Kyle, Garrett and Jordan; her brother Don Nazarkiw of Thunder Bay; many cousins and other relatives; and her best friend of 65 years Joan Murray of Comox, B.C.
May was born on September 16, 1933 in Fort William, Ontario where she lived with her parents Stella and Peter Yewchyn. When she was 13 her mother moved to the small town of Geraldton, Ontario. She moved to Fort William after graduation to enter business college and later worked for Kimberly Clark in Longlac, Ontario. In 1956, May was married to Lloyd Siver, flight instructor with the Royal Canadian Air Force and moved to Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan where their first daughter was born. After leaving the air force, the young family moved to Rimouski, Quebec where their second daughter was born, and then to Brampton where their son was born. In 1964, May and Lloyd moved to Kamloops and have been here ever since.
May was a wonderful mother who loved to be at home with her family. Once the children were in high school she decided to return to the work force and worked for The Ministries of Water Rights, Lands, and Parks ending her Career at the Ministry of Environment. She enjoyed her time working and after she retired she especially enjoyed the company of her co-workers.
Special thank you to Dr. DuPreez as well as the staff at the Hospice House. The excellent care given to May by all of the staff certainly helped during this difficult time. Our family cannot say enough good things about this amazing place.
