It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Auntie and friend. Sophie Kostycz passed peacefully on January 9, 2021.
Sophie was born September 27, 1929 in Posada Jasliska, Poland. She immigrated to Canada in the spring of 1958. With her husband by her side and three small children she left her entire family behind.
Sophie’s huge devotion for her faith and her family was never ending. She was a proud worker building baggage doors at Motor Coach Industries for 25 years.

She leaves behind to mourn her loss; son Walter Kostycz and wife Katherine. Her daughter Romalda Wildeman and husband Arnie and her son Richard Kostycz.
