1931 - 2020

Olga peacefully passed away on April 30, 2020, after a brief battle with a bacterial infection.
She is survived by sons, Tom (Oksana) and Jim (Tammy), grandchildren, Mark and Alyssa, as well as numerous close relatives in Canada, US, Europe and Ukraine.
She was predeceased by her husband Joe, parents, Dmytro and Mary Hudz, in-laws, Nick and Bertha Dudych.
Olga was born on July 25, 1931 in Winnipeg. She grew up in the North End, attending King Edward and Isaac Newton Schools. After graduating, she worked for the Canadian Wheat Board, leaving in 1961 to start a family. She later returned to work part-time at Eaton's. Along the way, Olga made many lifelong friendships that she nurtured throughout the years.
One of the highlights of her life was becoming a Baba. She enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and they loved going to Baba and Dido's. She was always available to babysit at a moment's notice.
She enjoyed singing in the Sts. Vladimir and Olga Church Choir, Millennium Choir, and was an early member of the O. Koshetz Choir. Olga was a long-time member of Sts. Vladimir and Olga Cathedral (since 1942).
From her teenage years and into her 80s, Olga was very active in the Ukrainian community. Her most enjoyable years were being a member of MYNO youth organization, and later UNF Ladies Organization and Executive. UNF Hall was often referred as her "second home".
In accordance with government guidelines, a funeral service will be held for the immediate family on Monday, May 4, followed by interment at All Saints Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, if so desired, donations may be made to Oseredok Ukrainian Cultural and Educational Centre or Sts. Vladimir and Olga Cathedral Renovation Fund.
Thank you to Dr. Andrea Babick for the wonderful care, both medical and spiritual. Special gratitude to the dedicated and compassionate staff of Holy Family Home.

  • Dear Tom and Jim and family...It has been a long time since I saw either of you and you may not even remember. Joe was my first cousin; your Grandma Bertha Dudych (nee Yaremko) was my father Michael’s sister. They immigrated from Poland together with brother, Adam who was just 2 years old, and sister Nellie (Zolondek), along with Jajo Nicholas Yaremko. Joe and Stephie were always welcoming to me when I visited them from the farm at Garson. So many stories I could tell you.... I first met Olga when she and Joe began dating so we go back a long time. Whenever I stopped by to see them, on my yearly visits to Winnipeg, Joe and Olga welcomed me as if I had been there yesterday and we would talk and reminisce about our common relatives. I am sorry that I had not been back for a couple of years but I plan to return this summer, corona virus permitting. Too late to visit Olga but she was well looked after at the Home. I occasionally speak with Natalie so I knew your Mom was there. I will be thinking of you tomorrow. Please accept our condolences on the loss of your lovely mother and if you ever come East I would love to see you in Montreal. Nadia and Douglass Hanson 4 rue Grier Ste. Anne de Bellevue, QC.
