Sylvia May Kitching


Sylvia left us on March 4, 2022 for further adventures. Sylvia died in Whitehorse after a 3 year battle with ovarian cancer.

She was born in Quebec City and came to the Yukon in 1974 to get rich, instead she found riches in her friendships and adventures in the Yukon.

She wants to thank all her friends for helping her have such a rich, wonderful, full and happy life. She loved you all.

Thank you to Dr. Ken Quang and Dr. Sally Macdonald for making her life easier for all these years and also the Chemo nurses and doctors for their patience, support and friendship during treatment.

“And most of all, love to my boy toy, Terry Thomas” and his son Mike.

Sylvia is survived by her brothers, Jimmy Kitching, Bill Kitching and Graham Egan.

No flowers but if you are so inclined, please donate to Mae Bachur Animal Shelter, Whitehorse General Hospital or BCCA for Cancer research. 
 No celebration of life by request

Our family has warm memories of all the support you have given us through the years. You are a superstar. We still remember the outings with the Gem and Mineral Club many years ago when the kids were small. You always had a smile and a helping hand for everyone.

Sylvia is/was the most altruistic person I ever knew; she would help anyone and everyone.

She was such a nice person. The Legion will miss you so much because of what you did as a volunteer for them for many years. I will give a donation in her name to the Mae Bacher Shelter. Obviously animals were important to her.
