KUHARSKI, Sylvia of Neepawa, Manitoba passed away peacefully on October 16, 2021 at Neepawa District Memorial Hospital at the age of 79. Sylvia Watt was born in the RM of Whitehead near Alexander, Manitoba. After her father's passing the family moved from the farm into Alexander where Sylvia finished her schooling. Sylvia later trained at Grace Hospital in Winnipeg, Manitoba and became a Registered Nurse. Sylvia began her working career in Neepawa where she met her husband Jim. After they were married and had children Sylvia left full time nursing to become a full time mother. Sylvia also became an active member of the Eden and Polonia communities. After moving to Neepawa, Sylvia continued her community activities in Neepawa, particularly as a member of both the Catholic Women's League and Neepawa Health Auxiliary. Sylvia was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She was always kind, giving, and willing to help family and friends. Given Sylvia's passion for reading, she was a source of information and advice for those near to her. Sylvia loved baking, her Christmas goodies and especially her pies will be missed, almost as much as she will be. Sylvia also loved to write and her letters were cherished by all who received them. Remaining to cherish Sylvia's memory are her children, Dennis (Nancy) Kuharski, Rose (Stephan) Zi-lliken, and Roger Kuharski; grandchildren, Braden Kuha-rski and Alexandra Robbins; brothers Frank (Elaine) Watt and Jack (Cydnie) Watt; many nieces and nephews; cousins; and the extended families spread throughout Canada. Sylvia was pre-deceased by her husband Jim, son Mark, sister Alice Howatt, brother Ferg Watt, brother-in-law Gordon How-att, and sister-in-law Judy Watt. A special thank you goes out to Dr Kelly and the staff at the Neepawa Hospital who tended to Sylvia to the end and particularly to Michelle Ferguson for everything she has done. Due to COVID-19 and the resulting Diocesan and Provincial policies, attendance at the Prayers and Funeral will be by invitation only, for this we are truly sorry. The prayers will be held on October 28 at 7:00 PM so please stop and recall a fond memory of Sylvia. The funeral service will be held October 29 with Fr. Mark Filips officiating. Interment will be at St. Elizabeth Cemetery, Polonia. Instead of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Neepawa and Area Palliative Care, Touchwood Park Association, Catholic Women's League, or Neepawa Area Health Auxiliary.
