Sybil Irene RImmer

RIMMER, SYBIL IRENE

1938 ~ 2015

 

Sybil Rimmer was called home to heaven on April 4, 2015, at the age of 76, after an incredibly courageous five-year battle with ovarian cancer. Born August 6, 1938, Sybil was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and  friend to so many. She was

predeceased by her loving husband, Rex W. Rimmer, whom was called home to

heaven on September 29, 2013, after a courageous battle with ALS. Sybil is survived by daughters Sandra McCracken and Constance Rimmer; son-in-law Colin McCracken; grandson Curtis (wife Sadye) McCracken, granddaughter Candace(husband Kelly) Craddock, granddaughter Madison Rimmer-Parno; great grandchildren Hannah & Brynlee McCracken and Lincoln & Lennox Craddock; and sister Dorothy Joliffe. Sybil is also survived by many great friends, cousins, nieces and nephews.

We will miss her so very much.

 

Sybil was known for her strong Christian faith, her love for her family & friends, and her youthful exuberance for life. She firmly believed that through Jesus’ resurrection, which we celebrate this week, Christ conquered death and his followers would have eternal life with him; so we celebrate this day and are comforted in knowing that Mom is in a better place, with Jesus and with Dad.

 

Memorial services will be held on Monday, April 20, 2015 at 2:00 pm at Everden Rust Funeral Services, 1910 Windsor Road, Kelowna, B.C., with reception to follow. 

 

Mom received such amazing care from the compassionate nurses and staff at Hospice House; so in lieu of flowers,

donations may be made to Central Okanagan Hospice House, 2035 Ethel Street, Kelowna, BC, V1Y 2Z6.
