June 2, 2013 – Calgary, AB.
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved mom, grandma, and great-grandma Sylvia Blow on Sunday, June 2, 2013 at the Agape Hospice at the age of 77 years. Mom gave a courageous battle against cancer for the past year and a half.
Sylvia enjoyed gardening, baking, camping, fishing, walking her dog (Max), the occasional trip to the casino; and most of all treasured time with family and friends. We shared mom with the world. She loved life; her vibrant positive personality was contagious. For over forty years she was an active member of the Montgomery Ladies Club; and with this wonderful group of women raised thousands of dollars for local charities.
Sylvia will be lovingly remembered by her children, Brenda ( Vic) Hodges and Ron (Tracy) Blow; four grandchildren, Ronnie (Amanda) Blow, Tony ( Elysse) Stiles, Brittany ( Jordan) Hebbes, and Amanda (Jeffrey) Clovis; two great-grandchildren Teesa and Nevaeh; her sister, Bea Marshall; brother-in-law Gordon Blow; and numerous nieces and nephews.
A celebration of Sylvia’s life will be held at the Montgomery Community Association (5003 16 Ave N.W) on Monday, June 10, 2013 from 1:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m..
