JAIME ANNE TYMCHUK With profound sadness and heartbreak we announce the peaceful passing of our daughter, sister, sister-in-law, auntie and friend Jaime Anne Tymchuk on Thursday, April 6, 2017 at the Grace Hospice in Winnipeg following a valiant and determined battle with cancer. Jaime leaves to mourn her passing and cherish many fond memories; her parents, Walter and Liz Tymchuk; her brother Corey; sister-in-law Megan and nephew and godchild Carter; her godchild Vivian; her aunties, Elsie, Stella (Ed) and Thelma; her uncles, Adam (Judy), David (Lorelei), Wally (Olga); her cousins, Rhonda (Kevin) Mila and Kinley, Brad, Connie (Roger) Lexi, Kierstin and Ava, Sheldon (Carol) Matthew and Emily, Darren (Janice) Keira and Kamryn, Dean, Dominik and Darko, Amanda (Justin). Jaime was predeceased by her brother Christopher at childbirth; her paternal grandparents, Mike and Jean Tymchuk and her maternal grandparents, Annette Iwanchysko and John Iwanchysko. Jaime was born on July 14, 1982 in Dauphin, Manitoba. From an early age she was a strong, loving, intelligent and generous individual who brought much joy to family and friends. She attended the Rorketon School from Kindergarten to Grade XII graduating with the Governor General Award in the year 2000. Jaime continued her education at the University of Manitoba, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts Degree with a major in Criminology. She then took training with Corrections and became a Corrections Officer at Headingley Correctional Centre, a position she held for approximately eight years until her passing. Upon the completion of each university term, Jaime held a variety of jobs which included Zellers, 7-Eleven, Reitman's, Green Team (Conservation), Manipogo Concession, Dufresne, Chicken Chef and Subway. Her vast circle of friends enabled her to travel to Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Mexico and three times to Las Vegas trips that she thoroughly enjoyed. Christmas and Easter were holidays Jaime thoroughly enjoyed and which she always wanted to spend with family. The larger the gathering, the more she enjoyed it. Baked macaroni and cheese and her specialty, chocolate covered peanut butter balls were a must at these festivities. Jaime's strong character and individuality was very evident in her approach to life. She purchased her own home in 2015 and really cherished her vehicle "Bluey". Jaime really enjoyed baking and cooking and had once considered a career in the culinary field. Completing Free Press Jumbles with Mom, her camping trips and quad derbies with friends and her trips home to the farm with Bluey were some of the little pleasures she enjoyed in life. Jaime's courage and strength of character showed in her approach to her illness. Jaime never once complained and was always willing to try anything suggested for treatment. The support she received from her friends Amanda, Sarah, Jackie, Tracy and Tammy was monumental and will never be forgotten. Her greatest supporter through this journey was her brother Corey. Funeral Liturgy for Jaime will be held on Thursday, April 13, 2017 at 10:00 am from the Saints Peter & Paul Ukrainian Catholic Church in Rorketon, Manitoba with Very Rev. Fr. Oleg Bodnarski officiating. A private interment will follow in the St. John the Baptist Ukrainian Catholic Cemetery, Horyn, Manitoba. The family extends their gratitude to Dr. Silvagio at Health Science Centre, St. Boniface Palliative Care and to the Grace Hospice for their exceptional care. Flowers are gratefully declined. Should friends so desire, please consider making a donation in memory of Jaime to a charity of your choice, or spend time with your family and friends which is something that Jaime always loved to do. "For nothing loved is ever lost And she was loved so much" Sneath-Strilchuk Ste. Rose Chapel 204 -447-2444

Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • I was one of Jaime's professors during her time in the Criminology program at the University of Manitoba. She was one of only about 10 people in my Field Experience course, so I got to know her better than I would most of my students. Jaime was always a pleasure to work with, and she was always very caring and considerate toward her research partner and the other students. Her project in the course involved working with the RCMP studying potential new initiatives to improve their in-school programs and supports for youth. Jaime's work made a valuable contribution to helping the youth of Manitoba lead better lives, and I am glad to have had the opportunity to know her. - Posted by: Frank Cormier (Former professor) on: Apr 12, 2017
