It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our dear mother, Sybil Magnusson, at the age of 90, on Sunday, November 27th, 2011. Sybil led a very active life for many years in Port Alberni. She played women’s fastball until the age of 50, and was an avid and skilled curler as well. Sybil enjoyed a long and happy retirement in Qualicum Beach, and finally in Parksville, with her wonderful husband of 67 years, Connie (deceased February 13, 2010). Sybil was a loving and generous wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.
Her courage, strength and sense of humor were legendary and her legacy is a large family who loved her deeply: children Gale (Joe), Barry (Shari), Lorne (Farrell) and Vicki (Brian), 11 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. Sybil’s family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude to the wonderful, caring staff of Coastview at Stanford Place, both for their excellent, compassionate care of Sybil and Connie, and for their extraordinarily thoughtful consideration to our family during Sybil’s final days.
Sybil’s family will host a casual get-together for family & friends on January 15th, 2012, at 1pm, at the Bayside Resort in Parksville to share fond memories.
In Lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Alzhiemer Society of BC, Suite 300, 828 West 8th Avenue, Vancouver, BC, V5Z 1E2, or to the charity of your choice.
