Greatly Loved,

Greatly Missed

It is with profound sadness we announce the passing of Twyla; mother, partner, sister, healer, and friend.

Born in NB, she trained as a RN at Saint John’s Hospital. She continued practicing on Vancouver Island and in the Okanagan.

She held a passion for life, a great humour, a desire to help others and was always ready to stop and have a chat with friends and strangers.

She is survived by her spouse, Marney McNiven; her daughters: Samantha Fairweather (Aaron) and Sabrina Baergen; her grandchildren: Spencer (Aiden and Eleanor) Sawyer, Mason and Wyatt; sister Lexi; brothers: Warren, Kim, Rodney; and other members of her large family and many friends.

She will be remembered in our hearts forever.

We would like to thank the staff at the V.J.H. Cancer Clinic for their wonderful care and expertise. We were also blessed with the experience of Hospice House, an incredible oasis of loving care and acceptance for us all.

A celebration of life will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 25th at Alternatives Chapel (2980 Smith Drive, Armstrong, B.C.). Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family at
