We are so grateful for Mom’s life, but it is with saddened hearts we announce the passing of Olga Cherewyk (nee Markewich). She was born September 3, 1922 to John and Anastasia Markewich and went to be with the Lord peacefully, with family by her side on February 22, 2020 at the age of 97.

Olga married Mike Cherewyk on November 12, 1949. Together they made a life on the Cherewyk farm, nine miles south of Norquay, SK. Their farm was not only a grain-growing farm, but included cattle, pigs and chickens. Mom and Dad worked hard, were devoted to one another and were blessed with five children. After successfully farming for more than 30 years, Mom and Dad retired to Yorkton, SK. They enjoyed retirement together until Dad’s passing on April 13, 1999. Mom continued to live in Yorkton, until 2007, then moved to Regina to be closer to family.

Olga was predeceased by her beloved husband Mike A Cherewyk; son Ted Cherewyk; granddaughter Erin Cherewyk; sisters: Anne (John) Roshka, Mary (Walter) Dutcheshen, Elizabeth (Walter) Starosta and Helen Yaganiski; brothers: William (Anne), Steve, Paul and Michael (Jean) and Joseph (Margaret) Markewich.
Mom is survived by her loving family: son Donald (Marg) Cherewyk and their children: Kristopher, James and Jensen; daughter Yvonne (Ron) Sloan and their children: Michael Sloan and Christa Sloan (Will) Chrapko; daughter Marianne (Vic) Penner and their children: Alissa Penner-Leugner (Derek) their son Elliot, Jason Penner (Nicole), their son Daniel, twins Julia and Paul; daughter Christine (Tim) Haynes. Also survived by her sisters: Sophie (John) Knittig, Veronica Sikorski; brothers: Nick (Jane) Markewich and Metro (Nettie) Markewich, and brother in-law Melvin Yaganiski; sisters-in-law Betty Markewich, Jean Markewich; many cousins, nieces and nephews.

The Funeral Mass will be held on Thursday, February 27, 2020 at 11:00 am at St. Gerard Roman Catholic Parish, 125 Third Avenue North, Yorkton, SK. Interment to follow in the Yorkton Memorial Gardens.
We love you Mom and will have you in our hearts forever!

Our family wishes to extend our heartfelt thank you to all the Staff at Selo Gardens Personal Care Home in Regina for being such a great “family” to our mother while she lived there and to each of the doctors, nurses and care aides who cared for our mother during her last few weeks in Hospice, you all are amazing, thank you!

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Mom’s memory may be made to Regina Wascana Grace Hospice, 50 Angus Road, Regina, SK, S4R 8P6 or to the Palliative Care Unit, c/o the Pasqua Hospital, 4101 Dewdney Avenue, Regina, SK, S4T 1A5.
