GULKA - Bella Gulka of Yorkton Saskatchewan passed away peacefully on September 1, 2020 at the age of 99 with her daughter Valerie at her side.
Bella was born in Rhein Saskatchewan on January 10, 1921 to John and Tekla Romick. She was a member of a family of 10 children. Her family moved to the Ketchen district in 1925 and she attended Netchie Hills School. On November 9,1941 she married Bill Gulka at Chechow Church. Their first home was in Chelan Saskatchewan where they farmed for five years. In 1946, they purchased a Red and White store in Ketchen which they operated until 1964. Following that, they purchased the Red and White store in Invermay Saskatchewan which they sold in 1968 and then made their home in Yorkton.
They were blessed with five children- Orest, who died in infancy, Lawrence, Betty, Valerie and Janice.
She was a member of St Mary's Ukrainian Catholic Church, Golden Agers, and UCWL. In 2007, she moved to Fisher Court where she enjoyed many active years of playing cards, bingo, shuffle board and companionship. Her passions were gardening, grafting trees, picking mushrooms and cranberries, and fishing.
Above all, she enjoyed playing cards with her children and grandchildren. Her faith was also very important and she was an active member of her church.
In 1991, she was predeceased by her husband Bill, her father John in 1963, mother Tekla in 1965, as well as siblings Annie, Helen, Mary, Polly, Peter, Paul, Billie, Joe, son-in-laws Orest and Bob.
She will be lovingly cherished and missed by her son Lawrence (Ethel), daughters Betty, Valerie, Janice, 11 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren as well as her sister Joyce (Ralph) Bjerke, sister-in-laws Stella Romick, Julia Romick, Adeline Gulka and Ann Gulka.
Her family are grateful for her dear friends at Fisher Court and also the excellent, compassionate care provided by the staff of Melody Manor. She had a special bond with Recreational Director Cyndi, who got the biggest smiles from her.
Prayers were Thursday, September 3, 2020 and the Funeral Liturgy on Friday, September 4, 2020 at St. Mary's Ukrainian Catholic Church in Yorkton with Rev. Father Leonid Malkov, C.Ss.R. as the Celebrant.
The responses were led by Lorne Stechyshyn and choir members. The cross bearers were Bradley Lopaschuk and Trudy Bather. The epistle reader was Alana Patzwald and the eulogist was Shannon Cox.
Stella Hardybala, representing the Ukrainian Catholic Women's League paid tribute in an honour guard.
