It is with great sadness, the family announces the peaceful passing of Sylvia Glowienka on Monday, July 23rd with her beloved husband, Bernie and sister-in-law Helen at her side, at the Charleswood Personal Care Centre of Diabetic complications.

Left to cherish her memory is husband, Bernie the love of her life for 65 years; sons, Bruce (Johanne), Robert (Jacqueline); grandchildren, Vanessa, Brandon, Garrett and Kody; Great -grandchildren, Sylvya Sunshine and Malakai; Sister-in-law Helen; nephews Blaine (Patricia) and Kris; cousins and extended families. Sylvia was predeceased by her parents, Anne and Fred Zorniak, parents-in-law Victoria and John Glowienka and infant son.

Sylvia was born, raised in the North-end of Winnipeg.  She was a very loving, devoted wife to Bernie and their (2) sons who were her life.  She cherished and doted on their (4) grand children and (2) great-grandchildren.  Sylvia was proud of her Ukrainian Heritage and was president of the Ukrainian Women’s Auxiliary and sang in the choir.  Sylvia was a very personable, outgoing people-person, loved get-togethers large or small and made sure there was enough food for everyone.  They travelled extensively throughout Mexico, US & Canada.  She especially enjoyed Granite Lake where everyone congregated on their deck for happy hour and snacks.  All the kids at the lake called her Baba and she always had toys, games and treats for them.  Her passion for shopping was phenomenal – but it had to be “on Sale”.

Cremation has taken place and internment will be on Saturday, July 28th at 11 a.m. at Glen Eden Cemetery “Devotion Annex”

Special thank you to her Home Care workers, especially Terresalina (Lina) and the Charleswood Personal Care Centre.

Donations can be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association.
