It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Rose Slogotski on March 23, 2020 at the age of 94. She is lovingly remembered by her children Leonard (Shelly) Slogotski of Buchanan, Elaine (Denis) Chatelain of Winnipeg, Theresa (Bruce) MacDougall of Edmonton, Mark Slogotski of Winnipeg; six grandchildren; David (Amanda) Slogotski of Saskatoon, Erin Slogotski (Dustin Iverson) of Saskatoon, Janine (Jarred) Nogier of Martinsville, Allison (Santino) Beninato of Toronto, Laura (Ian) Jeffrey of Winnipeg, Adam MacDougall (Kalyna Reid) of Edmonton; six great grandchildren; Jack and Ben Slogotski, Isla and Karis Jeffrey, Brielle Beninato and Otto Iverson, also her sister Evelyn (Henry) Kuruliak of Canora, brothers Lorin (Lillian) Martinuik of Buchanan and Larry Martinson of Calgary as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. She was predeceased by her husband Eddie (2013) and brother Joe Martinuik.
Mom was born on her family homestead near Buchanan on June 9, 1925, the eldest child of Mary and Nick Martinuik. On October 20,1946 she was united in marriage to Eddie Slogotski at St. Ann's Roman Catholic Church, Buchanan and was blessed with 67 wonderful years of marriage. They farmed on the Slogotski homestead until 1984, when they moved to Yorkton and at that time became very active members of St. Gerard's Roman Catholic Church. During her life, Mom enriched the lives of many including foster children, teacher interns and children she babysat. She was a compassionate person with a sunny disposition who loved to socialize. Mom loved gardening, quilting. cooking/baking and entertaining. If you knew her, you loved her, she was just that kind of person. Most of all, Mom loved her family and as a good farmer's wife, together with Dad, we, her children, were their best crop.
In 2010 Mom moved to the Bentley with Dad and later in 2016 she moved to the Norquay District Nursing Home where she spent her remaining days. A special thanks to all the staff for their loving care.
With the current pandemic situation, there will only be a private family graveside service at Garden of St. Luke, Yorkton Memorial Gardens. A public memorial service will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, your prayers and words of comfort are appreciated.
