Jewhurst, Sylvia

JEWHURST- Sylvia (nee Kutcher) Jewhurst of Springside, beloved wife of Dave Jewhurst, peacefully left us to join the Lord on November 13, 2017 at the Yorkton Regional Health Centre. She was 72 years of age. Sylvia was born on March 13, 1945 at the Queen Victoria Hospital in Yorkton. Sylvia was the middle daughter born to Dan and Carolyne (nee Fedun) Kutcher of the Whitesand District where her parents farmed. Sylvia grew up on the family farm helping with all the farm chores inside and outside of the house while attending the Byblow Farm School. Sylvia moved to Yorkton after her schooling and it was there that she began her career as a server at Lee's Restaurant. It was here where she met Dave Jewhurst, her beloved husband-to-be of 51 plus years. Dave was serving in the Air Force and was stationed at Whitespruce. Sylvia and Dave were united in Holy Matrimony at St. Mary's Ukrainian Catholic Church in Yorkton on July 2, 1966. This was the beginning of Sylvia's life as a "serviceman's wife". Sylvia and Dave were blessed with two sons, Stephen and Troy. Over the years, they were transferred to Holberg, BC, Rivers, MB, Edmonton, AB, Petawawa, ON, Beausejour, MB and ending back again in Whitespruce. Dave retired from the service in 1983 and that is when Sylvia purchased her own restaurant, the "J4 Café" in Torquay, SK. Sylvia is predeceased by her parents, Dan and Carolyne (nee Fedun) Kutcher and by her sisters, Natalie Derow and Virginia Kutcher. She leaves to celebrate her life her beloved husband, Dave; her two sons, Stephen (Karen) of Torquay and Troy (Shauna) of Orcadia; her 7 grandchildren, and her 10 great-grandchildren, who all miss their Baba dearly. The Requiem Divine Liturgy was celebrated on Tuesday, November 21, 2017 at 11:00 am from St. Mary's Ukrainian Catholic Church, Yorkton with Reverend Father Raymond Lukie C.Ss.R. serving as the celebrant. The responses were sung by the cantor, Mr. Edward Pindus, with the epistle lesson being read by Sylvia's daughter-in-law, Shauna. The cross bearer and pal bearers were interchanged by Sylvia's grandchildren with the interment in the St. Mary's Ukrainian Catholic Parish Cemetery (Whitesand). Sylvia was loved by all who knew her, may she rest in peace and may her memory be eternal. Funeral arrangements were entrusted to Kopan's Funeral Service, Yorkton. 306-783-0099
