It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Sylvia McRae on August 24, 2017 at St. Paul's Hospital. Mourning her death are; her loving husband of 55 years, Earl; children, Brian (Brianna) and Marni (Victor); grandchildren, Courtney (Tyson), Darien, Seamus, Ailish, Emily, Aselin, and Caitlyn; her brother, Earl; along with numerous nieces, nephews and extended family. Sylvia was born and raised in Saskatoon where she met Earl and they raised their family together. She was a loving wife and mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend to those who knew her. She loved to attend any activity that involved her grandchildren of whom she will be eternally proud. She loved crocheting, reading and was an avid hockey fan and longtime supporter of the Saskatoon Blades. Sylvia will always be remembered for her generosity, beautiful spirit and unconditional love of others. She was predeceased by her parents, Naomi and Tom Elliot. At Sylvia's request there will be no formal service. A private celebration will be held at a later date. The family would like to thank Dr. M Ubhi and the nursing staff at St. Pauls Hospital. Cremation arranged in care of Cherished Memories. Thoughts and memories may be sent to cherishedmemories@sasktel.net.
