OLER, Sylvia

Posted: September 25th, 2020



It is with overwhelming sadness that I, Ronald Oler, announce the passing of Mom, Sylvia Yvonne Oler of Lethbridge, who passed away peacefully at Chinook Regional Hospital with me by her side on Wednesday, September 9, 2020.

Sylvia is survived by her son, Ronald Oler, brother, Butch (Tracie) Baceda, granddaughter, Marisa Shigehiro and grandson, Scott Duncan.

She was predeceased by her husband, Ronald Buddy Oler, sons, Robert and Richard Oler, and daughter, Bev Shigehiro.

Sylvia was born in Barnwell and attended school there throughout her childhood. She then went to work at the Galt Hospital, where she worked for many years. Upon marrying her husband, Ronald, they moved to various air bases as he was in the Royal Canadian Air Force. They eventually moved to Lethbridge to retire. Sylvia then joined the Canadian Tire family to work for the later years of her life. She also worked for Southland Nursing Home—a place she loved working at because of the staff and clients.

Sylvia loved her family very much and would do anything for them. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

At Sylvia’s request, no formal service will be held. Cremation was entrusted to Cornerstone Funeral Home.

In memory of Sylvia, donations may be made to a charity of your choice.

Goodbye mother, I love you!
