Obituary for Pauline Boychuk (Danyluk)

BOYCHUK - Pauline Boychuk of Yorkton entered eternal rest on April 8, 2022 at Jowsey House after a short battle with cancer and many more health issues. Pauline was born on December 10, 1930 on her parent's homestead in the Stornoway district, a daughter of Bill and Mary Danyluk. She received her education at Doyle School and as a young girl worked on the family farm until her marriage to Fred Boychuk on July 11, 1948. They enjoyed almost 68 years together until Fred's passing on May 11, 2016, exactly 2 months short of their 68th anniversary. They were blessed with four children, David, Gerald, Herbert and Doreen. Mom and Dad spent many weekends with family, friends and neighbours playing cards, visiting and attending many community dances. They worked together on their mixed farm for almost 40 years. Mom loved the farm where she grew a big flower garden and even bigger vegetable garden, where family and relatives enjoyed the produce each year. In October, 1987 they moved to their new home in Yorkton. Here, Mom continued her large flower and vegetable garden. Her family always were treated with her canning, borscht, cabbage rolls and beet rolls. When her two grandsons were growing up they came to like certain Ukrainian dishes which Baba made sure she prepared for them when they visited. Mom was a devoted caregiver for Dad until his passing. She was determined to care for him at home until a month before his passing. After Fred's passing, Mom continued to take care of her home, her flower and her garden.
Her favourite pastime was reading the local Yorkton This Week and the Western Producer, something her family always found her doing at the kitchen table.
She leaves to mourn her passing and celebrate her life her sons, David (Charlene) of Regina, SK; Gerald (Margaret) of Yorkton, SK and Herbert of Sherwood Park, AB; her daughter Doreen (Randy) Prokopchuk of Yorkton, SK; two grandsons Colin and Justin (Jamie) of Regina, SK; two great granddaughters Ja'lynn Boychuk Donald of Regina, SK and Jane Boychuk, whom Baba got to meet six months ago. Jane thoroughly lit up mom's life who was passionately referred to her as "My Little Girl".  Many pictures of Jane sent on the phone were shared with mom and made her so happy all the time. Her expressions were priceless. As well as very special neighbours, Gordon & Geraldine Krett who became extended family. Pauline was predeceased by her parents Bill and Mary, her husband Fred and brother Eddie Danyluk.  A Graveside Service was held on April 14, 2022 at Yorkton Memorial Gardens with Rev. Father Michael Faryna of Holy Transfiguration Ukrainian Orthodox Church officiating. David Boychuk, Gerald Boychuk. Herbert Boychuk, Randy Prokopchuk, Colin Boychuk, Justin Boychuk and Gordon Krett served as the casket bearers. Condolences to the family can be posted at baileysfuneralhome.com
