Sophie Ruptash (Banash)

December 17, 1931 – September 1, 2022

It is with loving hearts we say goodbye to Sophie Ruptash on September 1, 2022 at the age of 90.  She will be reunited with her loving husband Tony, her son Bradley Ruptash, her son-in-law James Kuzminski and grand-daughter Cheryl Haughton (Kuzminski).  She will also be reunited with her family, Jean (John) Stepanzak, Bernard (Eva) Banash, Carrie (Rudy) Novalski, John Banash, Frances (Nick) Kuprowski, Anne (John) Kotack and Mary (Harvey) Chernetski.

Her spirit and love for family lives on through her daughters Sharon Kuzminski and Linda Jasper and son-in-law Wayne, daughter-in-law Nadine (Bob).  She will be greatly missed by grandchildren, Cheryl’s husband Tom their children Sophie, Kaylee and Thomas; Jason Kuzminski (Nicole) their children Rylan and Thea; Jamie Price (Chris) their children Aliyah, Lauren and Isla; Justin Jasper (Marlee) their son Bennett; Alicia Ruptash and Kyle Ruptash. Also cherishing her memory are sisters-in-law Irene Banash and Anne Ruptash. Sophie’s nieces and nephews were an important part of her family and she always appreciated their visits and phone calls.

Sophie was very talented when it came to sewing and various crafts.  Her talent for painting Ukrainian Easter Eggs are displayed in many homes of family and friends and will always be a treasured keepsake. Sophie loved to cook and bake. She was always eager to make perogies, cabbage rolls and cabbage buns and was willing to teach us how to make them so the tradition could be carried on.

The family will be forever grateful to the excellent staff of Middle Church Home and Residence Despins whose care and compassion means more to us than can ever be expressed.

A celebration of her life will be held on Saturday, September 10, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. in the Gilbart Funeral Chapel, 309 Eveline Street in Selkirk , MB.
