Gordon Sheremeta

December 24, 1956 - August 18, 2014


Gordon passed away in the South Okanagan General Hospital after a short battle with cancer. Gordon a native of Whitecourt, Alberta cherished memories of his early days with family and friends from Whitecourt to Edmonton and beyond. Often reminiscing and speaking with pride of the achievements of his brothers and sisters. He expressed an enduring love for his mother who unfortunately passed away when he was young.

He is survived by his daughter Lindsay, while they never had a chance to get to know each other as much as they would have liked, they loved each other very much from the time they did get to spend with each other; his step mother, nine brothers and sisters and their respective spouses, as well as many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his mother and father.

A special thank you to Murray Soder for caring for him and to Murray and Bill Ross for visitations and care during his time in Oliver hospital. Thanks to Erin Carlin, Social worker at PRH for her caring during his stay there. A thank you to the nurses and Doctors who saw to Gordon’s needs and a Special Thanks to Social Worker Tanya Potts for her ongoing genuine care and commitment prior to and during his time at SOGH.

Cremation has taken place. Interment will be in his home town of Whitecourt, Alberta at a later date.

“Moses” or “Corky” as we called him, was a free spirit who lived by his own rules for the past 30 years summering in the Okanagan and wintering in Vancouver.

Gordon was a very forthright individual whose bluntness often caused misunderstandings. His own definition of misinterpretation as written by himself may have been his definition of himself.


-people don’t pay enough attention to the other person

* then they get their story mixed up, and they tell another person, so things get misinterpreted.”

Residents of Oliver will remember Gordon as the white haired and bearded gentleman riding his bicycle to and from the A&W or to work at various farms and vineyards in the area.

From: Doreen Sheremeta
Relation: Sister

God saw you getting tired
and a cure was not to be
so he put his arms around you
and whispered,
“Come to Me”

With tearful eyes we watched you
and saw you pass away
and although we love you dearly
we could not make you stay.

A Golden heart stopped beating
hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best
Rest in peace, dear brother
