Arvilla Edith SILVER


August 22, 1944 ~ November 23, 2015


Passed away at the age of 71 years in Kelowna, BC. 

She is survived by her husband, Jerry Silver; son, Barry (Charitini) Silver; daughter, Shari (Jamie) Uhrich and

grandsons Jared and Dustin Uhrich.  She was predeceased by her parents, Bud and Lucille Lewis; brothers, Don Lewis and Gerald Huffman and sister Marion Bogard.  Born in Prince George, BC, Arvilla was raised in Vanderhoof, BC, and in 1968, she, Jerry and their young family moved to

Fort St. James, BC.  This remained their home for

the next 46 years.  Arvilla possessed excellent accounting skills which she put to use while working for the local bus depot.  She was also a very skilled seamstress and knitter.  She and Jerry cultivated many close friendships in their community over the years, and spent many summers at

the family cabin on Stuart Lake.  In more recent years,

they made frequent trips with their trailer to Kelowna,

resulting in their move here in 2014. Arvilla cherished her family and adored her grandsons.  Despite various health challenges, she faced these with resolution, and with

a great appreciation for life. The family would like to thank Dr. Rodney Joshua for his excellent medical care; and the kind and compassionate staff on 2E and 5B wards at

Kelowna General Hospital. There will be no service. 

Memorial donations may be made to the Kelowna General Hospital Foundation or the Fort St. James Seniors’ Centre.  Cremation arrangements in care of Everden Rust Funeral Services, (250) 860-6440
