The family of Wanda Korchowski announce her sudden passing due to a stroke on Sunday, May 3, 2020.
Wanda (nee Herczakowski) was born in Borowe Poland on October 15, 1931 to Helena and Roman Herczakowski. She attended school in Poland after which she and her sister Irina worked in a glass factory. In 1966 she met Peter Korchowski from Canada and they married in Poland. In February 1967, Wanda and her daughter Donna came to join Peter and his son Joe in Canada. The family first lived in Kelliher, SK and shortly afterwards they bought land in the Theodore area where the family began farming. After Peter’s death in July of 1978, Wanda, Donna and Joe continued to stay on the family farm until the farm house deteriorated and they moved into a home in Theodore. Wanda lived independently until recently.
Wanda had a passion for knitting. She loved going to garage sales to buy yarn so she could knit afghans, scarves, slippers and mittens. During her lifetime, she must have made over 100 afghans, if not more. She would later give them away for Christmas presents, birthdays or just because. She was an extremely generous person. Knitting helped her pass the time and helped her hands from getting arthritis. She was also an avid gardener. She had a green thumb and loved planting a big garden. She was especially proud of her winter garlic that she grew every year.
She is survived by her only daughter, Donna of Theodore; grandson, Jonathon of Regina; sister, Irina Klijewska (niece Ann and great-niece Karina) all of Poland; sister-in-law, Maria Herczakowski; niece, Jadwiga (Cec, Paul and Elizabeth); niece Helen (Wayne)and their children, Maria and Abigail; nephews, Joe, Peter, Roman (Leanne); step-daughter, Cec Wowchuk and family, Mary Korchowski and family.
She is predeceased by her parents, sister and cousins from Poland; brother, Eugene Herczakowski of Regina; husband, Peter and stepson, Joe.

I Am Free

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free; I'm following the path God laid for me

I took His hand when I heard Him call;I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day, to laugh, to love, to work, or play.

Tasks undone must stay that way. I've found that peace at the close of the day.

If parting has left a void, then fill it with remembered joy.

A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Ah, yes, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow;I wish for you the sunshine of tomorrow.

My life's been full, I savored much;Good friends, good times,a loved one's touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief;Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.

Lift up your heart and share with me --God wanted me now, God set me free.

From Clifford Farkus

Our deepest sympathies Donna and Jon on the loss of your Mom and Grandmother. I will always remember her as a quiet, gentle person. She had a very giving nature about her and always made one feel welcome. I’m sure you as well as many others have so many wonderful memories to cherish!

Sharon, Jeff, Brandon and Cheyenne Olson
