SOPHIA KORYTKO 1921 - 2021 It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of Sophia Korytko on January 27, 2021. Sophia passed peacefully at Holy Family Care Home with her loving family at her side. She leaves behind her daughter Lesia, granddaughters Olia, Halyna & Andrew (great-grandchildren Kalyna and Odessa), and extended family in Canada and Ukraine.
She was born on February 21, 1921 in Selo Nitsche, Ternopil. Sophia came to Canada in 1969 after being separated from her late husband Stefan for 25 years. She was a member of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress, the Taras Shevchenko Foundation, Oseredok, and Institute Prosvita. Since coming to Canada, she had been a Parishioner of Sts. Vladimir and Olga Cathedral and active in the Church Women’s League for over 50 years. Sophia will be remembered as a person with great kindness and generosity and will be greatly missed.
Sophia and family were grateful to all the wonderful care staff at Holy Family Home for being there for her during this unprecedented time.
