With heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of our beautiful mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, and friend. Sybil Ann Lavender (Hollingsworth) departed to the spirit world on January 5, 2021. She was predeceased by her loving parents, Frank Hollingsworth and Cora Hollingsworth (Redsky). She will be greatly missed by her brother Michael; sister Patricia; children Royce, Chris and Chantille (Hersh); granddaughter Evelyn; and many extended family and friends.
Sybil was an independent, loving and truly caring woman. She was adventurous and enjoyed new experiences. Through all the hardships endured, she always stayed positive and strong, teaching us life skills that made her into a valued role model. Sybil was a deeply spiritual woman, always connected with traditions and responsive to her inner self. Her warmth and compassion showed in the way she laughed, cared and loved unconditionally to everyone close to her.
Our cherished mom has joined her parents, our ancestors, and the Creator in the spirit world.
Celebration of life and a traditional Aboriginal ceremony with elder Melvin Moar and Ward Richard was held privately at Brookside Cemetery January 15, 2021 at 12 p.m. as per Covid-19 restrictions.
A special thank you to Eternal Grace Funerals for the support and guidance during this difficult and challenging time.
