December 28, 1931 - June 22, 2019

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother and Bobi Stephanie Balla on June 22, 2019.
Stephanie was predeceased by her parents, Eva and Peter; and sisters, Nadia and Mary.
Left to cherish her memory are daughter Janice; grandchildren, Jordan (Samantha) and Lauren (Mike); and great-grandchildren, Sienna Harvey and Sebastian Green.
Bobi was a giving, kind person who was easy to love. The minute she heard that you were under the weather, a pot of chicken soup was started. She was the happiest when she was cooking and feeding family and friends. There was always room for more at her table. Her Holubchi (cabbage rolls) were legendary, and could never be duplicated. Once tasted, they were sought out by all.
For many years Mom enjoyed bowling on the Ladies Trainor League. She was always striving for that Turkey (three strikes in a row). More recently, she enjoyed playing - whoops I mean winning at Bingo, bocce ball and whist - coming in second didn't work for her. She also loved doing her word search puzzles each day. Stephanie will be remembered for her smile, infectious laugh and how she loved to tease. She loved being a grandma and a great-grandma.
Many thanks to the doctors and nurses in the ICU at Grace Hospital for their compassion; it was invaluable. Many thanks to the nurses and aides at Golden West Centennial Lodge - they are a special group of people and Mom was lucky to have them in her corner. Lastly, thank you to Mom's companions, you helped to make the last four years better and easier for Stephanie.
A memorial service will be held at St. Chad's Anglican Parish located in Messiah Lutheran Church, 400 Rouge Road, on Thursday, July 18, at 2:30 p.m.
As Stephanie loved animals, donations in her name may be made to the Winnipeg Humane Society.
