Nettie Jemieff (nee Skutnitsky) of Yorkton and formerly of Kamsack District passed away peacefully
on August 7, 2019 at Yorkton Hospital. She was 85 years of age. Nettie was born in the Stornoway
District on the family farm March 14, 1934, the youngest of five children born to Walter and Kate (nee
Solonenko)Skutnitsky. Nettie received her education at Stornoway School. Upon graduation she took a
secretarial course in Regina, and then worked at the Medical Arts Building in Regina. When she met
Fred Jemieff of Kamsack, she fell in love and they subsequently married on July 23, 1955. Fred and
Nettie lived and worked in Toronto briefly before they moved back to take over the Jemieff family
farm. Fred and Nettie farmed and raised their two sons Jerry and Russell. Nettie also was employed as
a medical secretary in Kamsack for many years. In 2005, Fred and Nettie retired and later moved from
the family farm to Yorkton in 2013. Nettie enjoyed entertaining and often hosted huge family
gatherings. She was an excellent cook and grew a huge garden from which she preserved jams, jellies,
pickles and relish, and of course shared the abundance of produce with the rest of the family. Nettie
was always known for her quick wit, and she loved visiting and playing cards with friends on many
occasions. Fred and Nettie travelled and visited family in Toronto and BC as well as taking winter
vacations to Florida, California and Arizona. Above all, Nettie adored her family, and would help out
as much as she could, whether it be babysitting, driving grandchildren to music festival performances,
and in later years attending musicals, recitals, horse shows, baton twirling competitions and hockey
games. Nettie loved her pets especially her beautiful black lab Holly who was her faithful companion
after Fred’s passing.
Nettie was predeceased by Fred, her husband of 63 years, her parents Walter and Kate, her brothers
Anton and Carl, her sister Emily Strutynski, brothers in law Walter Strutynski, William Minchuk, Paul
Goddard, and sisters in law Janet Skutnitsky and Mildred Goddard. She leaves to mourn and celebrate
her life her son Gerald (Laurene) of Saskatoon; son Russell (April) of Olds, Alberta, four grandchildren
Reid Jemieff, Diana Jemieff-Hayes (Ian), Jenna Jemieff (Braden), Ethan Jemieff, and two great
granddaughters, Hannah and Charlotte Hayes. She also leaves to mourn her sister Mary Minchuk of
Kelowna and sister in law Paulette Skotnicki of Yorkton, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, great
nieces and nephews, cousins and dear friends.
