ONSLOW - Katie Onslow passed away peacefully August 1, 2020 at the Yorkton District Nursing Home at 90 years of age. Katie was born on November 30, 1929 to Thomas and Kateryna (Kitsan) Yarimchuk. She was the youngest of six children. She attended Czernowitz school. Following school, she helped her siblings with childcare. She married Alfred Onslow on May 3, 1947. They farmed together north of Theodore. They were blessed with four children; Darlene, Robert, Debra and Richard. She worked hard on the farm and grew big gardens and raised chickens to feed her family and to sell. She was a homemaker and caregiver all her life with her own children, grandchildren and then her husband when he got sick and required more care at home. She didn't really have time for hobbies but enjoyed cooking for family celebrations. Her spongecake and poppyseed chiffon cakes were her speciality. Christmas was her favourite holiday, and she loved decorating and planning her menu for Christmas Eve. She enjoyed Christmas carols and country music. She was an avid fan of the Theodore Buffalos hockey team and enjoyed watching the Toronto Blue Jays. She was an animal lover and had two particular special pets, a dog named Deedee and a cat named Grubby. In earlier years, she looked forward to the annual Kram church service at Mamornitz where her parents were buried. Family was the most important thing to her and she cherished family visits and get togethers and expected us all to be together at holidays and birthdays. She was predeceased by her husband Alfred, sisters Elsie Surkan, Mary Nelson, Doris Magas, Vicky Snitinsky, and brother Tom Yarmichuk. She is survived by her daughters Darlene Onslow of Yorkton, Debbie (Dwayne) Kitzan of Theodore and sons Bob (Ethel) Onslow of Theodore and Dick (Carla) Onslow of Tiechko Beach. She is survived by eight grandchildren, Kirsty (Des) Laevens of Regina, Stacey Serby (Jan Hiebert) of Regina, Todd Thorsness of Saskatoon, Dryw (Deidre) Onslow of Theodore, Colby (Sarah) Onslow from Theodore, Kimberley (Tyson) Kentz of Ebenezer, Colton Kitzan of Regina and Kaitlyn Kitzan of Saskatoon. She is also survived by six great grandchildren, Rhette and Hazel Laevens, Elly, Emma, and Nash Onslow, and Sawyer Kentz. George and Sandy Anderson, Shelley and Jack Kramer, Clay Serby and Trish Batten, and Rob Thorsness were also significant people in her life. Mom lived a very good long life and always cherished family and friends. The last few years has been a struggle for her, and we were blessed to have her with us for these many years. We will miss her but we are reassured she is at peace now and together with Dad. The funeral service was held on Friday, August 7, 2020 from the Theodore Recreation Complex with Doreen Day officiating. Family tributes were given by daughter Darlene and son Dick, and daughter Debbie sang 'In the Garden'. Musical selections were 'Amazing Grace' and 'Remember When'. Granddaughter Stacey Serby sang 'Follow the Sun'. The interment took place in the Theodore Cemetery with Katies eight grandchildren serving as the casketbearers. Memorials were to the Theodore Rec Centre. Condolences can be left at

Katie was such a wonderful lady. While it’s been years since I’ve seen her, I recall sharing so many laughs while in her presence. There were many good times at the rink, ball diamond and the farm. I know that Darlene, Bob, Debbie, Dick and their families were so precious to her. My condolences to you all. While she will be missed, you have the comfort of knowing she is in the company of your dad, Alfred again. I can almost see them smiling at each other.
