90 Years Young

It is with heavy hearts we announce the peaceful passing of our mother Claire Sieben.

Born in Wakaw, Saskatchewan Claire lived in Alberta and B.C. and raised four children alongside her husband John.

Claire had a unique and colorful personality, listened to anyone who needed an ear, and her door was always open. She loved her music and dancing, and if others offered to prepare meals, she gladly agreed as she let everyone know she didn’t cook.

She loved her hugs and seeing visitors, and was a devoted and dedicated soul to her family and friends. Although she could be outspoken at times, she loved each of us in her own way.

Her laugh and her smile will be remembered and missed, and her absence will be deeply felt by those whose lives she touched.

Claire was a “good old Saskatchewan girl” who was “the salt of the earth and the jingle of a bell”.

She was predeceased by her husband John Sieben, and is survived by her children Terry, Beverly, Wendy, and Russell, two grandsons, two great grandsons, and her brother Gordon.

In keeping with Claire’s wishes there will be no funeral service. She will be honored in the hearts of those who had the joy of knowing her. Her family is sincerely grateful to the staff at Vernon Jubilee Hospital for their compassion and care during Claire’s very brief time at the hospital

    I am so sorry to hear of Auntie Claire’s death. She was a very special person. Always so happy. And that laugh! I have fond memories of staying with her and Johnny at Aldersyde. A big hug to all of you.

    I first met John & Claire in 1973 at Sieben Autobody in Kelowna. I sold autobody supplies from Thompson Autobody. I followed him to his car lot on Hwy 97 then to his car lot in Sicamous where I regularly turned up the volume on his phone when he wasn’t looking just so I could watch him cringe when he answered it & say some kind words to me on my way out.

    Then when I had my own car lot on 27 St, I sold vehicles & boats to John for his car lot. Claire would step in & tell John he had just offered $2,000 more than my asking price. That’s when I got to know & enjoy Claire so much.

    I used to love her white gloves. She was always so happy to see me at MacDonalds & I‘d make a point of going over to talk to her & her friends. If she was standing she’d give me a big hug. She was always good for a laugh. I’ll miss her.
