SPELAY - Mildred Spelay, beloved wife of the late Steve Spelay, passed away suddenly at home with her family at her side on Friday, August 7 at the young age of 80 years. Mildred was born in the Whitesand District on October 30, 1939, one of seven children born to Jeanne & John Shumay. She attended school at Springside School.
In October 1958, Mildred was united in marriage to Steve Spelay at St. Mary's Ukrainian Catholic Church in Yorkton. Mildred was a very hard working woman. She worked at the Toronto Dominion Bank for years and then became a full time mom as soon as their four children were born. Once the children grew up, she returned to the work force. She worked for G&J Luggage and Travel Aids where she worked until she retired in 2006. Together, Mildred and Steve and their four children (Darrell, Blaine, Brent & Jodi) enjoyed all of life's pleasures. This included camping, hockey, curling, baking, cooking and family trips together.
Mildred will always be remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother who enjoyed life to its fullest and every day with her family. Some of her favorite moments would be spent visiting with her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren in their family home. Mildred enjoyed sitting outside in summer with her children viewing her large vegetable garden and yard full of beautiful flowers. Mildred's heart of gold touched so many lives in such a short time.
Mildred is predeceased by her parents Jeanne and John; brothers Steven, George and Donald; husband Steve, son Blaine and son in law Pete. Mildred leaves to cherish her memory and celebrate her life, her daughter Jodi of Saskatoon, her sons Brent of Yorkton, and Darrell (Kim) of Yorkton; grand daughter Brandi (Curtis) McManus, great grand children Ty and Kale McManus; grand daughters Michelle and Shannon Spelay of B.C. as well as numerous relatives and good friends.
The Funeral Liturgy was held on Wednesday, August 12, 2020 at St. Mary's Ukrainian Catholic Church in Yorkton with Most Rev. Bishop Bryan Bayda, C.Ss.R. and Very Rev. Father Leonid Malkov, C.Ss.R. as the Concelebrants. The responses were led by Lorne Stechyshyn and choir members. The Interment followed in the Yorkton City Cemetery. Memorials may be made to Kinsmen Telemiracle as gifts of remembrance. Condolences can be sent to the family at

Darrell, Brent and Jody. Sorry for the loss of your mom. Find strength in each other. This has brought back memories of time spent at Grandpa and Grandma's farm when we were kids and the families would get together. We will be thinking of you on Wednesday. Sorry we could not make it for the service.
