November 13, 1923 - April 4, 2017
Ethel Koszman formerly of Weyburn, SK passed away peacefully in High River, Alberta on April 4, 2017 at the age of 93. Ethel was born in Rama, SK to George and Ann Kowalyshyn on November 23, 1923. She was predeceased by husband John in 1965; partner Joe Janeczko 2011; grandson Mark in 2012; her brother Mike and her sister Mary. She is survived by her loving family – sisters Anne and Olga, brother Bill (Olive), daughter Nancy (Terry), son David (Alice), daughter Rosemary (Matt); grandchildren John (Lorna), Deanne, Natalie (Dan), Kim (Scott), Jonathon (Jenny), Jeff (Shammah); great grandchildren Derek and Eryn Michelle. Mom farmed and gardened her whole life until she moved into a care home in 2011. She was an active member in the Ukrainian Catholic Church both in Tribune and Weyburn. Mom was known for her welcoming nature to all visitors and always offered either a meal or a snack. Her culinary skills were loved by everyone (family, friends, community) – perogies, cabbage rolls, borcht, baked bread and her awesome “apple pies”. She always produced a huge garden and shared the abundance with friends and neighbours. Family enjoyed her wit and humor and the many “political” discussions. She was a real card shark, especially if she could change the rules as the game went along. Her constant companion on the farm was her dog “Rex” – she loved him dearly and missed him immensely when she left the farm. We all have many fond memories of mom and especially family gatherings at the farm, we always had a great time with lots of laughter. Mom will be greatly missed by her family, relatives, friends and all the many people she touched in her lifetime with her gentleness, kindness and compassion. Prayers took place at RD Funeral Chapel & Crematorium 1825 – 1st Avenue NE, Weyburn, SK on Sunday, April 9th, 2017 Funeral mass was held at Holy Trinity Ukrainian Catholic Church, Weyburn, SK, officiated by Father Andrei Katchur on Monday, April 10th, 2017. In lieu of flowers you may make donations to Holy Family Ukrainian Catholic Church, Box 98, Tribune, SK S0C 2M0. To send condolences and view Ethel's Tribute Page, please visit www.lylereeves.com.
