Joe Stasiuk, aged 93 years, of Yorkton, SK, passed away peacefully on Monday, March 23, 2020. He leaves to mourn, his wife of 70 years, Elvina (née Sopel) and his children: Rick (Darlene), Cindy (Brad), Lavern (Holly), Dave (Mandy), Adria (Gary); his grandchildren: Scott, Shannon (Chad), Drew, Jennifer (Aaron), Travis, Justine (Dan), Parker (Amy), Nicole (Cody), and great grandchildren: Brady-Cole, Jakob, Mikayla, Portia, Dylan, Wesley, Henry, Brielle, Levi, Micah. Joe was predeceased by his loving son Merle in 2000; his parents John and Oksana; brothers Steve, Mike and William, and sisters Alice and Annie. Joe was born in Glen Elder, SK on July 4, 1926. Joe and Elvina were married on October 8, 1949, and farmed together near Danbury, SK for several years. He took a course in Edmonton, AB, and in Vernon, BC in his early years. In 1962 Joe and Elvina moved to Danbury, where they bought the Lucky Dollar store. Joe soon became a respected and hardworking member of the Danbury community. He was always volunteering to help out at the hall, as a fire volunteer and at the outdoor skating rink. The Glen Elder Ukrainian Catholic Parish had a very special place in his heart, as he would get up early to start the fire so the other parishioners would be warm when they arrived for Sunday morning mass. He was the president of the parish council and worked endless hours for his church. In winters, Joe worked at a sawmill in the early years, and even later, would go to the bush in the winter to cut wood. His special connection with nature could be seen in the beautiful woodwork projects he created, as well as the garden that he worked hard on with Elvina. Joe was also a musician in his young years, playing the fiddle, guitar and accordion. Providing for his family was always his number one priority, as he ran the Lucky Dollar Store for 30 years, including painting in the summers when he needed to, and also operating the post office out of the store. Joe would open the store at any hour, always providing service to help his customers. Joe and Elvina loved spending time playing cards with their many friends and relatives who lived nearby. Joe and Elvina loved spending time with their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. He was an incredibly gentle, kind, generous man who loved his wife and family deeply. A special thank you to the nurses, doctors, especially Dr. Shahat and Dr. Groenewald, and staff at Canora Gateway Lodge and the Country Meadow Care Home in Yorkton for all of your love and support. He will be missed by all. No service at this time. Condolences can be left at

Elvina and family: There are never enough words to express our heartful condolences or words enough to soften the hurt and sorrow that each of you are coping with during this difficult time. Please know that you are within our heart and deep within our thoughts. Our Deepest Sympathy. Many memories have returned to me when we all lived and grew up in Danbury, I can recall walking into Lucky Dollar store, pop cooler on the left and Joe or anyone of the family member greeting you at the counter. God Bless! Ron and Sandee Ochitwa
