With heavy hearts, we announce that Laverna passed away at Jocelyn House Hospice after a long and valiant battle with cancer, and thyroid disease.


Laverna is survived by her husband of 7 years, Don Stewart; daughters Michelle (Larry) Ollinger, Sherry Hamilton of Regina, and Pamella Hamilton of Winnipeg; sisters Marcia (Bob) Nestor of Vancouver, Beverley (Milton) Biever of Edmonton; brother, Len Siedlikoski of Regina; and granddaughter, Ashley Vieira (Adam Hogg) of Red Deer.


Laverna grew up in the Foam Lake area of Saskatchewan under the care of her grandparents Edward and Marietta Olsen.


In keeping with Laverna’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A private celebration of her life will be held in the summer of 2021 at her grandparent’s gravesite in Bankend, Saskatchewan. In the meantime, Laverna’s family kindly requests that her friends and relatives take a few minutes to honour her memory by sharing photos and/or memories and stories using the comment section on this page.
