Sophie was a tribute to women and she and Cy were incredible role models for all of us ! It was a blessing to know her. My heartfelt condolences to Cy and his family . - Posted by: sharyn bednarczyk (Friend) on: Jan 01, 2020
I was introduced to Cy & Sophie, who would later become my aunt & uncle-in-law. The few times I spent with them are so memorable. The over the top Christmas dinners and Santa and kids and they even did it in July one year as they had been away over Christmas. A kinder more loving family I have never had the pleasure of meeting let alone becoming a part of. God Bless and comfort all of you at this very sad time and I hope, eventually, the breakfasts will continue...…. - Posted by: Rosalie Larcombe (A wonderful Auntie through marriage) on: Dec 30, 2019
I was lucky enough to be welcomed into the Nimchuk home many, many times when I attended university with Karen. Both Sophie and Cy were very hospitable; offering a safe place to ‘party’, endless snacks, and a nurturing environment for so many of us. They never complained about the frequency of our get-togethers, the volume of our music, or our top-of-our-lungs singing. Perhaps that was because they were frequently out enjoying a very active social life. I remember Sophie leaving the house beautifully dressed, impeccable hair and make-up. She was such a great role-model. - Posted by: Janet Goddard (Friend ) on: Dec 30, 2019
Our condolences to Cy and family. Our thoughts are with you. - Posted by: Kevin & Bonnie Nimchuk (Family) on: Dec 30, 2019
We used to camp at Falcon Lake back in the late 1970's and 1980's with the Nimchuk family and many others. We would sit around many campfires having a fun time talking and playing the guitars and accordion, roasting garlic sausage, marshmallows and various other goodies (along with drinks). We had a lot of good laughs and memories. - Posted by: Joan Lovel and Family (Long time friends) on: Dec 29, 2019
I forget exactly how many years it was since I had met Sophie and Cy Nimchuk but they were the nicest couple! I was so lucky to have worked under Cy’s leadership, both at Glenwood and at Darwin. Sophie was a wonderfully kind hearted lady with a great sense of humour! My deepest condolences go out to Cy and the whole Nimchuk family!

I got to know Sophie when Cy was our principal at Windsor. There were many times that our staff were invited to their home to enjoy authentic Ukrainian food. She was always present whenever we attended our regular luncheons with Cy and somehow managed to go home with a prize. We will miss her smile and gentle nature and she will be in our prayers Take care Frances - Posted by: Mrs. Frances M. Lemieux (Friend) on: Dec 29, 2019
WHAT A GREAT LOSS FOR US ALL NOW THAT YOU'VE LEFT. AND WHAT A GREAT HONOUR IT HAS BEEN TO HAVE HAD YOU AS PART OF OUR LIVES. REST WELL MY GIRL. YOU'VE EARNED IT. HUGS TO CY AND THE WHOLE CLAN...RON - Posted by: RON NIMCHUK (COUSIN-IN-LAW) on: Dec 28, 2019
I was lucky enough to be hired by Cy to teach at Windsor School in 1973, and thus to be introduced to the world of love, laughter, generosity, kindness and fun that was created by Cy and Sophie for me and all of us who came under their spell. The deep love they felt for each other was beautiful to see. I can still see Sophie, smiling, sharing good food, good stories, dancing and laughing. She’s the only person I knew who actually danced on tables, with her delighted husband grinning at her spirit. She was still laughing the last time I saw her, in the laundromat at Traverse Bay. I am so sorry to hear of her passing, and send deepest sympathy to Cy and the Nimchuk family. - Posted by: Pat Harman (Old friend) on: Dec 28, 2019
