It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our dear mom, grandma, and great-grandma, Helena Pidwirnyj. She passed away peacefully in her retirement home on Monday, September 25, 2023, at the age of 94.

Helena was predeceased by her husband Nicholas Pidwirnyj.

She will be lovingly remembered by her daughter - Teresa (Peter), her two grandchildren – Peter and Edyta (Artur); her two great-grandchildren – Luca and Olivier, as well as other family members in Poland.

Helena was the youngest of 7 siblings who emigrated from Poland in 1973 to join her brother and sister in Winnipeg. She was an intelligent, strong, funny, kind, and caring person who always spoke her mind. Helena enjoyed spending time with her family, who meant the world to her, and she enjoyed making countless pierogies and baked goods to share with everyone around her. She spent the last 22 years living with her daughter Teresa, who has been there for her every step of the way. Helena will be remembered as the matriarch of her family. She will be forever missed and always in their hearts. May she Rest in Peace.

Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Tuesday, October 3, 2023 at 11:00 a.m. with viewing prior to service at 10:30 a.m. at Holy Ghost Parish, 341 Selkirk Avenue, Winnipeg. Interment will be held in Holy Ghost Cemetery, 4387 Main Street.
