BYBLOW - Helen Byblow (nee Pawliw) beloved widow of Paul Byblow of Springside peacefully passed away at Yorkton & District Nursing Home on December 23, 2019 with her family by her side. Helen was born March 8, 1932 in the Buchanan area to Dan & Dora Pawliw. The family then moved to the Springside district where Helen attended Whitesand School.
On October 29, 1949 Paul & Helen exchanged vows at St. Mary's Ukrainian Catholic Church in Yorkton and were blessed with 65 wonderful years of marriage.
Upon getting married they farmed and had five children, Gloria, Terrance, Yvonne, Stephen and Carla. With great sadness they lost Terrance as an infant leaving Helen with a deep sadness in her heart.
Working side by side on the farm with Paul, she always had time to welcome friends, family and neighbours with her compassion and kindness. Being somewhat of a private person, in what spare time she had, she loved to crochet, knit, garden, bake and sew.
Helen was also involved for many years in the Whitesand Parish Catholic Women's League.
She leaves to mourn her passing, her children Gloria Byblow, Yvonne (Tom) Cole, Stephen (Jacqui) Byblow and Carla (Steve) Chabaylo. Six precious grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren, also 2 brothers Paul (Nettie) and Allan Pawliw, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
