SCRABA - The family of Sonia Scraba of the Calder district, beloved wife of Lorne Scraba sadly announce her sudden passing on Sunday, June 23, 2019 at the age of 71 years.
Sonia Marie Scraba was born on June 2, 1948 at Yorkton, daughter of Kathleen Miller (nee Sarafincian) adopted and raised by Nick and Rosie Lesanko. On May 1, 1971 Sonia was united in marriage to Lawrence Scraba in Calder, enjoying 48 loving years of marriage. They farmed in the Calder district and raised two daughters, Catherine and Cynthia. Baba enjoyed gardening, chickens, playing cards, baking and was known for her famous perogies. Baba was very proud of her granddaughters. She always enjoyed socializing, whether it was at family events, Ukrainian Dance Competitions, New Year's Eve parties, Ukrainian Christmas's and Easters. She always enjoyed coloring eggs with the grandchildren and making perogies and baking with them too. She was always a happy, smiling, joking lady who loved to visit.
She leaves to cherish her memory, her beloved husband Lawrence and their children: Catherine (Dion) Spokes of Canora and their daughter Tessa Spokes; Cynthia (Bill) Brinley of Yorkton and their three daughters Kelby, Taylor and Hunter Brinley. Her sisters and brother, Karen (Brent) Agar of Roblin, MB, Sharon (Kevin) Kowalchuk of Roblin, MB, Bernice (William) Stratuliak of Dauphin, MB and Joe Miller of Roblin, MB; as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Sonia was predeceased by her parents Kathleen Miller and Rosie & Nick Lesanko and her brother Bernie Miller. She will be sadly missed and forever remembered for her infectious laughter, sense of humour and memories she made with her family and friends.
The Funeral Service was held on Wednesday, July 3, 2019 at Yorkton Memorial Gardens Family Centre with Rev. Roland Legge of the United Church of Canada officiating. Sonia's life history was shared by Kelby Brinley. One of Sonia's favourite musical selections, "I'll Fly Away" was played as the recessional. The interment followed in the Garden of Gethsemane at Yorkton Memorial Gardens with Curtis Lacusta, Gerald Shymko, Bryce Mandziak, Geoff Mickolas, Karl Mickolas and Nicole Agar serving as the casket bearers. Memorials may be made to the Cardiac Care at Yorkton Regional Health Centre or the Diabetes Association. Condolences to the family can be posted at

I was very saddened to hear about the loss of Sonia. Sonia & I were friends for many, many years. She was one of the kindest and dearest person, I've ever know. She was genuine and I will miss her friendship and the many laughs we had through the years. My deepest and heartfelt sympathies to Lawrence, Catherine, Cynthia and all your families. She always spoke highly of her children and grandchildren. Memory eternal.
