Mabel Cheveldave (nee Strelioff)

Mar 16, 1933 – Mar 3, 2018
Mabel passed away peacefully early on the morning of March 3rd after a short battle with cancer.

She was predeceased by her husband Peter and her siblings Andy, Tim and Doris. Mabel is survived by her sisters Agnes and Polly; her children Gail (John), Leonard (Carol), Bob (Colleen), Tom (Diane) and Kevin; 11 grandchildren; and 8 great-grandchildren.

Mabel was born in Pass Creek, BC, raised her five children in Slocan Park, BC, and moved to Sicamous in 1981.

Mabel will be remembered for her delicious food and her insistence on feeding everyone who came through her home. Her signature dishes were borscht and pancakes, which she cooked so often the recipes were ingrained in her memory. Mabel was known for feeding entire hockey teams on occasion, and never sitting for a meal until everyone had eaten. She prepared her famous borscht and pies at a restaurant in Salmon Arm for many years.

Mabel’s husband Peter founded a sports store in Salmon Arm called The Jock Shop in 1986, which she helped him and her son Kevin with for 30 years.

The family would like to thank Dr. Jack Beech and the Shuswap Lake Hospital staff for all their care.

A funeral service will be held on Friday, March 9 at 1 pm at Sicamous Bible Church at 326 Kappel Street.
