It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful and sudden passing of our mother, Catherine Wozney, at the age of 100 on April 13, 2020 at the River Park Gardens Care Center in Winnipeg. She is survived by her 3 sons: Harold (Jo-Anne) of Winnipeg, Bill (Lynne) of Red Deer, AB and David (Julie) of Winnipeg; and her two daughters: Frances (Wally) of Waterdown, ON and Iris (Rick) of Courtenay, BC. She is also survived by 10 grandchildren: Glen, Barbara, Brenda, Cheryl, Brian, Laurianne, Ron, Terry, Kevin and Ryan; 17 great-grandchildren and 3 great-great grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents Jacob and Anna Skilnick, husband Harry, brothers Jack, Bill, Nick, Fred, Steve her sister Marie, and grandson Curtis. She was born in Willowbrook, SK and attended Rosemount School in Rokeby SK until Grade 8. She spent the next couple of years helping out at her parent’s farm then, as a young lady, she took to the big city of Winnipeg where she was first employed at St. Amand Centre and later as Nanny for the prominent Harris family of Winnipeg. She didn’t much care for big city life and returned to Yorkton where she met her husband Harry and married a short time later. Settling into farm life in the Kessock area they were overjoyed to start a life together which would eventually include five children. Our mom enjoyed looking after a very large flower and vegetable garden and enjoyed helping with the farming and harvest as much as she could. She loved bringing in the garden in the fall and making all the preserves and canning every last vegetable she grew. She would gather the children when the time was right and include them in the picking of Saskatoon berries, raspberries, strawberries and gooseberries which she turned into the best pies and jam preserves. She spent her winters making macramé plant hangers, crocheting many afghans for her family and quilting. After selling the homestead in 1964 Mom and Dad took up farming at Dropmore, MB and later at Roblin, MB. A few years later they left farming and moved to Yorkton. After a short duration in Yorkton they ventured off to Winnipeg where they were employed at Place Louis Riel for a number of years. Dad missed the farm life so they returned to the farm at Roblin, MB. In December 1979 when farming became too difficult they returned to Yorkton and made it their home until Dad passed away in 1995. Later that fall Mom moved to Winnipeg to be close to her family. Catherine had a lifelong love of animals, she was predeceased by her beloved pets: her Maltese Mimi, as well as her two Boston Terriers, Amber & Sasha. As Catherine's health slowly began to fail she became a resident of Golden Links Lodge Care Centre and later moved to River Park Gardens residing there until her death. A special thank you to River Park Gardens for the special and compassionate care our mother received as a resident. A graveside service and burial will take place in the family plot at the Yorkton City Cemetery on Friday, April 24, 2020, conducted by Fr. Leonid Malkov of St. Mary’s Ukrainian Catholic Church. In memory of Catherine Wozney, memorials to the Canadian Diabetes Association, 917A Albert St. Regina, SK S4R 2P6 may be made as tokens of remembrance. Condolences can be left at
