CHERNIPESKI - Ivon Chernipeski, devoted husband of Lillian and loving father to Twyla, Melodyi, and Darcy, was born June 20, 1925 in the district of Theodore, Saskatchewan. He was one of twelve children born to Steve and Agoffia (nee Maleschuk) Chernipeski. Ivon was raised on the family farm, and attended school in Theodore.

Ivon started out on his own at a young age, and did various jobs such as being on a threshing crew, trying his hand as a cook in a lumber camp, or really anything he could in order to make a bit of money. Ivon was never afraid of work. He soon obtained his first gravel truck, and continued to grow, starting his own business, “Chernipeski Bros.” He always said that a day on the truck or loader was a good day. For many years, he was awarded the contract to haul sand and gravel for the city of Yorkton.

Ivon also had a love for the land and farmed for many years of his life. Even as he grew older and his legs began to give him trouble, he would tell one of us to drive him up to the combine so that he could climb in. “Once I’m in, I’m good to go,” he would always say.
On October 30th, 1953 he married the love of his life, Lillian Brown. The two spent 66 years married, raising a family and going through all of life’s good times, as well as of course the bad, side by side.

He loved his grandchildren dearly, and held them very close to his heart. They were very special and very important to him. No matter how busy he was, he would always make sure to make time for them, even if it was to sit and have an ice cream. As family was very important to him, so we’re many people who came into his life. He was always so generous and willing to help someone whenever he could.

Ivon passed away August 7th, 2020 in his home, just as he wished, surrounded by his family. He will always be loved and remembered by his dear wife Lillian, daughters Twyla (Jerry) Borchowitz, Melodyi (Darrell) McKay, and son Darcy (Lorraine) Chernipeski. Grandchildren Derek (Brianne) Borchowitz, Tamara (Robert) Moss, Tarrah Borchowitz, Jessica Chernipeski, Talissa Krause (Kane), Justin Chernipeski, Jillana (Darren) Francoeur, and 6 great grandchildren, Lucas and Nahanni Chernipeski, Sawyer and Noel Borchowitz, and Blakelyn and Kenzie Moss. He is also survived by his brothers: Mike, Victor, Alex, Edward, and Steven, along with one sister, Emily, and many nieces and nephews.
The Funeral Service was held on Wednesday, August 12, 2020 from Yorkton Memorial Gardens Family Centre with Pastor Norman Manwieler officiating. Maria Cole-Gayle and Alicia Oucharek-Mantyka sang solos and were accompanied by organist Laural Tiechrob. The Eulogy was given by Twyla Borchowitz The interment followed in the Garden of St. Mark, Yorkton Memorial Gardens with Randy Chernipeski, Curtis Chernipeski, Bryan Kindiak, Brian Chernipeski, Larry Liebreich and Delwyn Liebreich serving as casket bearers.
