Obituary

Joyce Martyniuk of Yorkton, formerly of the Norquay district, widow of Paul Martynuik entered eternal rest on June 9, 2019 at the age of 71 years. Margaret Joyce Martynuik (Woloshyn) of Yorkton SK passed away peacefully on Sunday, June 9th at the age of 71. Margaret (or 'Joyce' as everyone knew her) was born May 1st, 1948 in Yorkton, SK to John and Adella (Maduck) Woloshyn. She grew up on the family farm in Jedburgh SK, with her younger brother Ronnie. She attended Forest Nook school for grades 1 - 8, and then continued onto Ituna and Theodore schools to complete her high school diploma. Joyce always told the stories of her walking 1.5 miles every day to and from Forest Nook School, in 40 below weather, chasing cows on the road both ways. She loved to learn new things, and therefore continued her learning by attending various courses and training programs including office administration, hair cutting, cooking, bookkeeping, horticulture, sewing, quilting, cake decorating, and various other courses offered through the Parkland Community College.
Joyce was married to Paul Martynuik on October 5, 1968 at St. Mary's Church in Yorkton. Joyce worked in the office at the creameries in Yorkton and Norquay, and the couple settled on the family farm at Norquay in 1970. They spent many years raising their 4 children Dwayne, Randy, Lana and Jarret, and operated a dairy and grain farm. In Norquay, Joyce was active with the Sacred Heart Ukrainian Catholic Church, 4-H, driving kids to sports, gardening, and sewing. She started the Norquay Ukrainian Dance Club with her long-time friend Margie Pawliw. Joyce and Paul sold the dairy and moved to Yorkton in 1996. Joyce cooked at the Cultural Centre for a short time, and when Walmart opened in 1999, she was one of the first employees to be hired to open and work at the store. Joyce enjoyed her 15 years at Walmart, and worked in various departments like fabrics, paint, hardware, and the bakery until her retirement. After her time at Walmart, she immediately went to cook for the priests at St. Mary's Ukrainian Catholic Parish until May 2019, and loved to spoil them with her cooking, especially Fr. Kushko. Joyce belonged to the Golden Agers and enjoyed playing bingo and socializing. She loved to crochet, quilt, read, complete Sudoku puzzles, play cards and board games, cooking and baking. Joyce loved to travel, and vacationed across Canada and the USA, Cuba and Mexico with Paul and many dear friends. Joyce was also an avid sports and Saskatchewan Roughriders fan, and enjoyed watching and cheering sports games and events on TV. She was honoured as a member of St. Mary's Ukrainian Catholic Women's League for 20 years holding positions including treasurer of the Eparchial and branch level, and audit chair.
Joyce was predeceased by her parents in 2007, and her husband Paul in 1999. Joyce will be missed by her children Dwayne Martynuik (and Debbie Ward) of Yorkton, Randy Martynuik (and Nichole Posehn) of Emerald Park, SK, Lana and Lawrence Klemetski of Yorkton, Jarret and Elisha Martynuik of Wembley, AB; her grandchildren, Sarah, Emily, Kaitlyn, James, Bree, Ryker, Marshall; her brother Ronnie and Marie Woloshyn of Yorkton; and many other friends and relatives.
Prayers were held on Wednesday, June 19, 2019 with the Yorkton Redemptorist Fathers officiating. The Holy Rosary led by UCWLC preceded. The Funeral Liturgy was held on Thursday, June 20, 2019, both services at St. Mary's Ukrainian Catholic Church in Yorkton with Rev. Father Ray Lukie, C.Ss.R. , Rev. Father Joakim Rac and Rev. Father Methodius Kushko as the Concelebrants. The crossbearer was Carol Serna and the epistle reader was Deb Grywacheski. Members of UCWLC held an honour guard. The interment followed in the Yorkton City Cemetery with Richard Serna, Rick Pawliw, James Klemetski, Emily Martynuik, Marcel Massey and Martin Prive serving as the casket bearers. Memorials honouring Joyce may be made to St. Michael's Camp, Box 128, Kamsack, SK S0A 1S0 Condolences to the family can be posted at www.baileysfuneralhome.com

I will miss Joyce and her loving smile and wonderful stories. Many a time while working together at Walmart she would make the day go faster with a cheerful story about growing up in Saskatchewan. The love for her family grew each day and you are all so lucky to have had her as your Mom, Grandma,and family. Sending hugs and prayers to you all, Diane Oliva and family.
