Elizabeth "Liz" Bodner passed away surrounded by family on January 7, 2020.
Liz was born in Libau, Manitoba on September 13, 1934 to Fred and Barbra (Dora) Hinkewich.
Moving to Selkirk, Manitoba in her younger years and making it her forever home, Liz was a kind and hardworking individual.
She married John Bodner on October 25, 1952 and were later blessed with a son, Ronald.
Liz is survived by her son Ronald, granddaughter Jenine (Guy), sister Mary, as well as many nieces and nephews.
Liz was the heart and soul of Baker Boy Catering in Selkirk, Manitoba. The fantastic food served at thousands of dues in Manitoba were led by her, behind the scenes putting it all together. She truly loved her time at Baker Boy, developing another family underneath it's roof. One of these chosen family members, Rhonda Thorsteinson, was the daughter she never physically had and one of the most special people in her life.
She fondly shared stories over coffee of her cherished Baker Boy years at her favourite hangout, Selkirk's A&W.
A graveside service will be held on Friday, January 24, 2020, at 2:00 p.m. at St. Clement's Churchyard Cemetery, Selkirk, Manitoba.

  • I am truly sorry for your loss Ron. L.J. - Posted by: Linda (acquantaince) on: Oct 16, 2020

  • Liz was one of my favorite people. We met for coffee almost every morning for many years which included in the last 2 years, Liz Wilma Nuno Darren Ian Wayne Janice and Rhonda . Many happy hours, lots of jokes, and laughter and well some political talk, family talk and even baking (Rhonda). The guys were always thoughtful of LIz (watching their language (lol). She always had her hair done nicely, and got complemented about her red coiffed hairdo. She always looked her best and always was smiling. this past year she won a prize at AW including a Root bear. I took a picture of her just beaming. She was determined to get out for coffee most every day and just last month, snowing like crazy, in she came, determined that nothing was going to stop her. She would remember all our kids, wanting to see pictures. She finished catering years ago but she was still always making cabbage rolls, perogies, homemade noodles, pie dough....she was good with a rolling pin! We all miss her very much. There is an empty chair at the AW table....and I am sure we all are still waiting for her to walk in ....Miss you Liz....till me meet again in Heaven :) - Posted by: Janice Schellenberg (Friend) on: Jan 18, 2020
