VICTORIA (VICKY) FEDOROWICH
With sadness we announce the peaceful passing of our dear Mother, Victoria (Vicky) Fedorowich, on Tuesday, June 13, 2017 at the Seven Oaks Hospital at the age of 95.
Mom was born on April 22, 1922 in Polson, MB to parents John and Maria Chrapchynski (nee Oleksiw). She was the youngest of her seven siblings. Mom married our dad Jerry in 1953 in Winnipeg, sadly dad passed away suddenly in 1984. Remaining to cherish mom’s memory are loving daughters Joan (Gordon) Joyce (Ken) and her precious granddaughter Brittany (Alex). Mom is also survived by sisters-in-law Mary Federowich, Sister Mary Benilda, Vicky Prestayko, Kay Baran, Ivy Malanchuk and numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
Mom was predeceased by her parents and all her siblings and in-laws: Nick (Jean), Pete (Allie), Annie (John), Mike (Julie), Katie (Iradion, Peter), Sophie (Ignace), Nellie (Paul) and many other extended family members.
Mom was genuinely a sociable person, never turning down an invitation and always eager to take part in many events. She enjoyed her travels to Hawaii, Alaska, Nashville, Caribbean Cruise and most recently by motorhome to Sudbury and Kingston Ont.
She enjoyed many years at the cottage in Komarno and Lac du Bonnet.
Mom was born into a musical family and also acquired musical talents learning to play the violin and cymbaly. Her talent was passed onto her daughters and granddaughter. She always looked forward to attending their performances.
In earlier years mom was employed by Paulin Chambers and The Winnipeg Tribune. In retirement mom enjoyed her involvement with the Age & Opportunity Senior Centre and most recently at the Bleak House until she was admitted to the hospital in January 2017. We would like to give our heartfelt thanks to all who visited mom during her 5 month stay in the hospital, your thoughtfulness and kindness meant so much to her. Special thanks to Dr.Abbott and staff of the 4th floor Unit 11 for their outstanding and compassionate care. Mom repeatedly said she didn't know how she could ever repay them for the care they all provided.
Divine Liturgy will be celebrated by Fr. Isidore Dziadyk, OSBM at St. Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic Church, 737 Bannerman Ave. on Monday, June 19, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. Interment will follow at Holy Family Cemetery.
