1941 – 2010
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Gladys Elizabeth Kellerman (nee Sieben) on Saturday, October 30, 2010. She is survived by her loving husband Earl, her mother Nancy Sieben, her sons Robert (Diana) and Jim (Renaye), her daughter Kelly (Shahriar), her sister Lyn and her brothers Ron (Barb) and Ken (Karen). She is also survived by her stepchildren Colleen (Scott), Forrest (Tracey) and Maurice, her 13 cherished grandchildren and many friends. Gladys was a loving, gracious and creative women. She was an accomplished artist – a painter, photographer, craft person and a gardener. She was the ultimate homemaker – a gourmet cook and baker, a sewer, knitter and crocheter. Her biggest joy in life was family. She believed that if the family circle stayed strong and connected there would be enough love and strength to hold everyone in time of need and joy. To that end, she made sure there were several large family celebrations every year, where we could all step out of the busyness of life and gather together, reconnect and have fun. There will be a Celebration of Life on Saturday, November 6, 2010 at 1:00 PM at Chilliwack United Church 45835 Spadina Ave. Chilliwack B.C. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Breast Cancer Foundation of B.C.
