Evelyn Anna (Ev) SILZER

SILZER – Evelyn Anna (Ev) died in hospital with her loving daughters at her side on December 11, 2010 at the age of 77. Born February 25, 1933 in Herbert, SK, she was predeceased by her loving husband of 38 years, Herb, January 17, 1989. Ev is survived by daughters Nora and Nola, son-in-law Allan Collier, granddaughter Amy Collier and the many more she “adopted” along the way. Ev worked as a real estate agent in Kelowna, Nelson and Revelstoke, and earlier in retail sales and management. She followed Herb on construction jobs that took them to the Peace River and West Kootenay regions, Revelstoke and Venezuela. No matter where she travelled or how long she stayed, the richness of the lasting friendships she made is a testament to her extraordinary capacity to listen and nurture. Ev (Mom) would want us to be lifted from the depths of our sadness by happy remembrance that her always loving and ever present wise counsel will continue to be offered whenever we listen for it. Many thanks to attending doctors and nurses. In lieu of flowers, donations to a charity of your choosing would be greatly appreciated. A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, December 21, 2010 at 1:00 pm at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road.
