Sylvia Grace Smith

December 15, 1934 - December 18, 2023


Sylvia passed away peacefully at Cowichan District hospital.

Sylvia was born in Sheffield England and came to Canada with her new husband to start a new life. Canada quickly became her home.  Sylvia was a hospital support worker at Richmond General Hospital until her retirement. Anyone who knew Sylvia knew how much she loved singing, music and telling jokes.

Sylvia is survived by her five (5) children. She gave them the love of reading while raising them on her own. Dave (Heather South-Smith), Del (Holly Pringle), Duane, Jane Gibbons (Rob Gibbons), Johnathon (Anh Smith), along with her Grandchildren, Adam, Anne (Kelly), Michael (Brittany), Sean (Kirstin), Sam (Taylor), Kayla and Parker and Great Grandchildren, Caden, Everly, Addison, Sebastian, Westley and Hannah.

With great sadness, predeceased by her granddaughter Megan H. South.

We would like to Thank all the Dr.’s, nurses and the support staff at Cowichan District Hospital. The care, respect and dignity you gave our mother in her final days was exceptional. Words cannot express the amount of thanks that you all deserve for being so compassionate.

Sylvia loved flowers of all kinds, please think of sending flowers to someone you love.

Mom you will be missed so much by all of us. WE LOVE YOU.
