Sylvia Rose Alexander

May 30, 1936 - October 26, 2011


It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of our Mother, Sylvia. She was the matriarch of our family. She held us all together in the face of adversity. Sylvia was proud of her accomplishments. She worked for Powell River Home Support for 25 years, retiring at 65 as top senior. She was president of its first union “SORWOC” and also cared for her grandmother Mrs. Wakelin. She lived at Myrtle Point for over 20 years and the beach was a good source of many good meals.

Sylvia was predeceased by her husband Ronald, father Raymond and mother Winnifren (Marianne). She has left behind seven children, 15 grandchildren: Cliff (Trish, Chris and Kevin), Keith (Pierrette, Robert, Richard and Ryan), Aurelle (Maggie and Byng), Jeannine (Jerry, Bonnie and Anthony), Vivianne (Chris, Amanda and Zach), Suzanne (Don, Michael and Megan), Michelle (Cam, Brook, Brody and Courtney) and four great-grandchildren Taaylor and Jacob Schreurs, Braden and Brendan Dewitt.

We would like to thank Dr. Hoffert and our dear Dr. Lafferty, as well as all the other hospital staff and the home support staff who helped our Mother in her three-year battle with cancer. There will be no service upon request and in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society’s Jean C Barber Lodge, 575 West 10th Avenue, Vancouver BC, V5Z 4C3.
