March 7, 1933 - September 8, 2020

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beautiful mother Pauline Kohut, who passed away peacefully in her sleep at the Poseidon Care Centre.
Mom was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and was raised in Ostenfield, Manitoba; along with her nine brothers and sisters. Mom married our dad Paul Koltalo in 1951 and resided in Hazelridge, Manitoba, where they raised three children.
After Dad's passing, Mom joined the Hazelridge Caterers, and also worked at Elmhurst Golf and Country Club. This is where Mom met and married her second husband John Kohut in 1991. They resided in Winnipeg where they enjoyed 17 wonderful years together before John passed away 2008.
Mom then made her home at Columbus Manor in St. Boniface for over 16 years where she made many friends. She enjoyed watching wrestling, Judge Judy and the Price is Right; and we can't forget Mr. Bean as one of her favourites! Mom also would play a mean game of left, right and centre at family gatherings where she would win most of the time. She also loved playing bingo. Mom enjoyed time with her friends at adult daycare on Tuesdays, and Senior Club on Wednesdays, until Covid put a stop to her usual social gatherings.
Pauline is survived by her daughter Adeline Ewasko (late husband Bernie) and grandchildren, Crystal of Selkirk, Manitoba, Vince (Norma) of Texas, Florence of Cloverleaf, and Dave of Alberta; son Frank Koltalo (Kim) of Transcona; grandchildren, Ryan (Anna), and Dylan; son Brian Koltalo (Cindy) and grandson Jason of Oakbank, Manitoba; as well as many nephews and nieces.
Mom is also survived by her twin sister Kathleen Kohut, and brother George Moslenko (Dorothy); and their families in Winnipeg. Mom is also survived by her great-granddaughter Natasha Ewasko.
Predeceased by her parents, Wasel and Waselina Moslenko; brothers, John, Nick, William, Mike, and Steve; and by sisters, Ann Mysak and Mary Bloor.
The family would like to thank Poseidon Care Home and Glen Lawn Funeral Home for their care and compassion.
The family would also like to thank Uncle George and Aunt Dorothy for always sending goodies with Mom to take home whenever we went to visit. Mom loved Uncle George's cinnamon buns! Thank you to Mom's twin Auntie Kay for checking up on Mom; her phone calls would always make Mom laugh. They still would share clothes and jewelry until Mom's passing.
A private family Graveside Service took place on Wednesday, September 16, 2020, at Glen Lawn Funeral Home and Memorial Gardens, with Father Darren Kawiuk of Sts. Peter & Paul Ukrainian Catholic Church presiding.

We Love You Mom
Rest in Peace.
