In Loving Memory (1938-2022) ~
It is with deep heartfelt sorrow that we announce the passing of our beloved Mother, Grandmother, Baba and Baba Baba, Paula Sherbinin (nee Veregin) on March 19, 2022, at the age of 84. The service was held at Castlegar Funeral Chapel and the Glade Cemetery on March 26, 2022, where she was laid to rest with her lifelong sweetheart, Peter Sherbinin.
Throughout her life, Paula was a determined and hardworking woman. From gardening, farming, to chopping wood, Paula was always there to count on. Paula was an active member in the Crescent Valley Hall women’s cooking group and took immense pride in her traditional Russian cooking. Her talent for baking and cooking was immeasurable.
Paula made friends wherever she would go. Her big smile lit up a room and she always knew what to say to make you laugh with her undeniable humour. To know Paula was a gift.
Paula absolutely adored and deeply loved her family, especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren. L
eft to cherish Paula’s memories are her children, Jack (Angie), Janet, and Ken (Deb); her five grandchildren; her seven great grandchildren; and nieces, nephews and cousins.
Sadly, Paula was predeceased by her parents, sisters, her husband Peter, and son-in-law David.
Paula, you have not only been a wonderful mother and grandmother to us, but you’ve shown us what it means to be a strong woman. We have endless love and respect for you, and we are forever grateful that we were lucky enough to be your family. We will deeply miss you.
We would like to kindly acknowledge all the people who graciously and respectfully helped Paula along her journey: Isabel and the loving team of care aids and nurses at Mission Creek Landing; Dr. Van der Ross, Dr. De Wet and the staff at KGH; all of the staff at Castle Wood Village; First Memorial Funeral Services and Valleyview Funeral Homes along with the Castlegar Funeral Chapel; the Doukhobor and Glade Community Members; and all of her friends, family and neighbours who visited and enjoyed a laugh with her over the years…we thank you all!
