July 23, 1939 - June 7, 2020
Anne was born Sunday, July 23, 1939, in Dauphin, Manitoba, daughter of John Sametz and Mary (Merko) Sametz.
Anne spent many years as a clerk at the Stylerite Department Store and then 15 years as a Dietary Aide and Cook at St. Paul's Personal Care Home. She enjoyed working with people and loved to cook and share her culinary talents and skills with others.
She could always be found working on a project, either sewing, embroidering, crocheting, gardening or exploring new recipes. She was a skilled cook and baker and was happy to bake traditional Ukrainian wedding breads for friends and family. Her sense of humour and joyful approach was always evident and shone through in all that she did.
Anne is survived by her son, Greg and wife Colleen of Strathmore, Alberta, her granddaughter Leah, husband Brian and great-granddaughter Brinley of Okotoks, Alberta, her grandson Adam and fiancé Kayla of Calgary, Alberta; her son Ken of Winnipeg; her sister and brother in-law, Olecia and Stan Smilski of Winnipeg, her niece Laura of Winnipeg, her nephew Michael, wife Kerri and their sons, Jack and Sam of Cochrane, Alberta, her niece Christine of Winnipeg, and her nephew Darryl, wife Lindsay and their sons, Evan and Noah of Dauphin.
Anne was a devoted mother and proud Baba to her grandchildren and her nieces and nephews. Family and friends were important to her and she loved family gatherings when she could cook and host everyone around her table. Her freezers were always full and she often sent people back home with coolers full of baking, perogies, holubsti or her famous Mexican Perishky.
A Panahyda Service was celebrated by Father John Sianchuk in the Blessed Velychkovsky Shrine on Thursday, June 11, 2020, in Winnipeg. When the Pandemic restrictions are lifted and it is safe to do so a Celebration of Life will be planned in Dauphin for when all family and friends can attend.
If friends so desire, donations in memory of Anne Romaniuk may be made to the Preservation Committee of the Historic Church of the Resurrection, PO Box 121, Dauphin, Manitoba R7N 2T9.
May Her Memory be Eternal

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)
Ken, The son went to his mother. He picked her up and rocked her back and forth, back and forth, back and forth and he sang the song: I'll love you forever I'll like you always as long as I'm living and beyond My Mommy you'll be. ~ R. Munsch The bond between a mother and son is unbreakable and lasts an eternity. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time. My sincerest deepest condolences.

My deepest condolences. I am the daughter of Tommy Nowicki, and Eva Duda. I didn't know Annie, I just know the Romaniuk name from Hazelridge or Winnipeg. I just wanted to recognize and pay tribute to the Romaniuk family and recognize the familly from my memory.♥️♥️ Regards, Phyllis Gardiner - Posted by: Phyllis Gardiner (nee Nowicki) (Acquaintance ) on: Jun 16, 2020
I met Anne when she was a roommate with my Mother at Deer Lodge Center. She was always friendly and kind when I visited my Mom. We shared crocheting stories and talked about curling and cooking Ukrainian dishes. Ken was also very thoughtful by bringing food for both his Mother and mine. Thank you to both Anne and Ken for your kindness and patience. I am so sorry to learn of your Mom's sudden passing. She was a special lady. We lost our Mom in April and understand how difficult this time is for you and your family. - Posted by: Jan Knight (New friend) on: Jun 16, 2020
