Zina was born September 11, 1926 in Ukraine.  As a young child she came to Canada in 1930 and settled with her family on a farm just outside of Winnipeg.  She later moved to Winnipeg to work in the sewing industry.  Zina and Joe were married on July 29, 1950.  Zina loved the outdoors and gardening.  We will always cherish the Sunday dinners which she loving prepared and kept the family close.  Her perogies and apple pie were second to none. 

The family would like to express sincere thanks to the staff at St. Joseph’s Residence for their kindness and compassionate care.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba. 

Mass of the Resurrection will be celebrated at St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church, corner of Mountain and Andrews on Wednesday, October 5 at 11:30 a.m.  Masks are still mandatory at St. Joseph’s.  Interment to follow at All Saints Cemetery. 

God looked around his garden and found an empty space.  He then looked down upon this earth, and saw your tired face.  He put His arms around you and lifted you to rest, God’s Garden must be beautiful, He only takes the best.  It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone, for part of us went with you, the day God called you home
