Mary Brischuk (nee Evanik) - With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Mary Brischuk on Wednesday, July 17, 2019 after a lengthy illness, just short of her 90th birthday.
Mary will be greatly missed by her five children and their families: Sylvia (Les) Koch, Alexander (Cathryn) Brischuk, Melinda (Rolf) Salfert, Mervin (Marianne) Brischuk, Eugene (Susan) Brischuk. Mom, Baba, Superbaba will be missed and her memory cherished by ten grandchildren and five great- grandchildren. Mary had two brothers and four sisters in all. She leaves to mourn her memory sisters Rose, Sylvia, and Ann. She is lovingly remembered by numerous nieces and nephews throughout Canada.
Mary was born on August 10, 1929 in Mukachevo, Czechoslovakia. When she was two years old her family immigrated to Canada and homesteaded in the Endeavour area where she grew up and proudly attended Brookview School. In her teen years, the family moved to a farm south of Norquay where she worked very hard and learned the skills of family farm life. She also worked for a time at Cherewyk's General Store in Norquay. Still in her teens, she met and married John Brischuk from the Rhein district on November 1, 1947. After spending time in Rhein, Runnymede, and Hamilton, they returned to the Evanik farm at Norquay in 1955, where they remained, raising their family and participated in church and community life until their retirement and a move to Yorkton in 1993. After 51 years of marriage and dad's passing in 1998, mom remained in their Yorkton home until her recent illness.
Mary was a loving and kind mother who gave of herself to her children and all who visited her home. She raised her family through hard times but always managed to provide for their needs. She could never sit still. She loved her vegetable gardening and cherished her flower garden. She loved to read and was an avid Bingo player. While health allowed, she enjoyed many hours of social interaction and work at the parish center. Mom was determined, strong and independent after losing dad, the love of her life. She gladly learned to use a computer so that she could browse the internet and keep in touch daily with her children and grandchildren through Skype. She was determined to continue to drive her beloved car up until this spring when her health prevented her to continue. Mary was an intelligent, hard working woman who easily made friends and had lasting friendships throughout her life. After moving to Yorkton she developed a daily routine of walking and enjoying coffee with special friends.
Mom cherished her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She always welcomed everyone with food and dainties when they visited. Baba's perogies, cabbage rolls, and meatballs were a family visit must!
Mom's faith and strength kept her going to the end. Her family would like to thank Dr. Osime, the staff at Yorkton Regional Health Center (1st east), and the staff at Jowsey House for the kind, gentle and loving care provided to her during this difficult time.
The Brischuk family wishes to thank Fr. Bohdan Lukie and St. Mary's Church for the beautiful services held for mom. Thank You to Bailey's Funeral Care for their help and guidance during this difficult time
Mary, Mom, Baba, Superbaba, Aunt, friend and neighbour will be greatly missed, but lovingly cherished and remembered by all. She has found peace in the loving arms of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Heaven has welcomed her home. Vichnaya Pamyat!! Eternal Memories!!

God's Garden: God looked around His garden and He found an empty place. He then looked down upon this earth, and saw your tired face. He put His arms around you and lifted you to rest. God's garden must be beautiful, He always takes the best. He knew that you were suffering. He knew that you were in pain. He knew that you would never get well on earth again. He saw that your road was getting rough, and the hills are hard to climb, so He closed your weary eyelids and whispered, "Peace be thine". It breaks our hearts to lose you but you did not go alone for parts of us went with you the day God called you home...Robert Frost. In loving memory of my gentle sister Mary, Until we meet again!
