It is with love and sadness we announce the very peaceful passing of Stella Laskowich (Adams) at the age of 89 at Riverview Health Centre. With friends holding her hand, she slipped away gently into the loving arms of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
Predeceased by her husband Herman in 2006; parents Mike and Josephine Adams; brothers Peter Adams, Joe Adams, and Adolph Adams; and sisters Eugenia Adams and Cassie Kluk. Left to cherish her memory are sisters Anne Hordichuk and Shirley Hordichuk; sisters and brothers-in-law; numerous nieces, nephews, neighbours and friends; and fourteen godchildren: Darrel Adams, Kim Burtney, Linda Connor, Diane Dedio (deceased), Cindy Hrabchak, Theresa Johnson, Colleen Kazakoff, Dale Kluk, Brian Pilat, Karen Schweitzer, Wendy Semegen, Gerry Skura, Peter Skura, and Syd Skura.
Born and educated in Arran, SK, Stella then moved to Winnipeg. She was employed by Kresge’s in the jewelry department, and later she and Herman owned and operated Perogies Unlimited.
Stella loved to entertain family and friends. Her home was always spotless, she was an avid gardener, and an accomplished cook. Stella was a member of Holy Eucharist Ukrainian Catholic Church for over 60 years and was an active member of the UCWLC for over 55 years. She volunteered many hours of her time and was very generous with her parish. It was a privilege to know Stella; she was kind, generous, positive, and loving to everyone she met.
Thank you to the staff at Concordia Hospital, and to Drs. A. Strange and M. Boland and all the staff at Riverview Health Centre for their kind and compassionate care.
Pallbearers are Darrel Adams, Wayne Adams, Brian Hordichuk, Dennis Kluk, Gerry Skura, and Syd Skura. Crossbearer will be Ernie Hordichuk.
Prayers will be held at Holy Eucharist Ukrainian Catholic Church, 505 Watt St. on Friday, April 20th at 7:00 p.m. Funeral Divine Liturgy will be celebrated by Fr. Michael Kwiatkowski on Saturday, April 21st at 10:30 a.m. at Holy Eucharist Ukrainian Catholic Church, followed by interment at Holy Family Cemetery.
Flowers are gratefully declined. Donations in Stella’s memory may be made to a charity of your choice.
