Nancy Sivak

Sivak, Nancy Joan (nee Cree)

"Death lies on her like an untimely frost upon the sweetest flower of all the field." - Romeo and Juliet

Nancy found eternal peace on July 20, 2021. Born during WW2 to the late Cannon A.S.H. and Maude Cree, she was the youngest of the Anglican minister’s children, the oldest being the late Holt Cree (Mary Jane) and older sister Marion Clark (Bob). Nancy was raised and believed that if people were good just for the sake of goodness that this world would be a place in which everyone might thrive. Nan found true love in this world when she married Milan “Smily” and together they had 3 adored children. Mom always said that the years of having children to raise brought her more joy than she ever dreamed possible. Her first-born Holt Sivak (Christiane Sadeler) made her proud beyond words with a keen mind and heart bent on doing good in this world. Her second child, Mark Sivak (Elaine) preferred lightening the weight of the world through laughter and kindness, experiences of which Mark and mom often shared together. Mom’s last chance was a lottery win in having a baby girl - Jennifer Sivak-Griffin (Dan). All the heart Nancy wished for the world she found inside her baby girl. The cherry on top of the sundae-of-life for Nancy was when Max, Laura and David - the next generation - came along. Any and every opportunity to see and hug her Grandkids was treasured beyond words. Nancy’s love of family included her nieces and nephews and so enjoyed the family pool parties where she could hear of their adventures and accomplishments prior to joyfully being Cannonballed. Cremation has taken place. A celebration of Nancy’s life will take place at a later date.
