MARY POSYNIAK Mrs. Mary Posyniak (nee Holomay) died peacefully at Charleswood Care Centre on August 18, 2017, in Winnipeg, MB, at the age of 95. Mary is survived by her sons Michael Posyniak and Edward Posyniak (Jean); daughter-in-law Eleanor Kelm-Presunka (Barry); brothers Pete Holomay and Tony Holomay (Mary); sister Nellie Korzenoski; grandchildren Krista Lin (Randor), Gillian Nattress (Graham), Beth Campbell (Warren) and Brian; great-grandchildren Bridget and Theo (Gillian/Graham), Nathan and Ryan (Beth/Warren) and Anderson (Krista/Randor); and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by father Michael Holomay; mother Anna Holomay (Kitlarchuk); brothers Nick Holomay and Edward Holomay; sisters Tillie (Ouelette), and Stella (Prokopowich); husbands Marvin Presunka and Adam Posyniak; son George Presunka and daughter-in-law Eileen Presunka; son Barry Presunka; and grandson Brad (Barry). Mary was born on May 7, 1922 in Pine River, MB to Michael and Anna (Kitlarchuk) Holomay. Mary graduated from Grade 8 in Bowsman, MB, however she never stopped learning both formally and informally. As Mary was married to the railroad, she raised her four boys throughout Manitoba, from the barrenlands of the Hudson Bay Lowlands (Cromarty) to isolated Fay Lake / Athapap to small town Cranberry Portage / Mafeking / Gillam and even to the Saskatchewan prairie community of Wadena. Her children remember her as a kind mother who encouraged them to pursue their goals. Her grandchildren were a great source of joy and she always enjoyed sharing her life experiences and philosophy with them. Mary loved to read and loved discussing any or all of her reading topics with anyone who was willing to engage with her. She was a quiet individual who loved her independence and who was passionate about her various hobbies of reading, curling, knitting, cooking, painting, travelling, etc. At Mary's request, no service is scheduled. The family would like to thank all of the caregivers at the Charleswood Care Centre for their care and dedication.
