November 11, 1930 - January 7, 2021
It is with deep sorrow that we announce the very sudden passing of our dear mother, oma, and great-oma at the age of 90.
She was born in Fachrie, Romania, and came to Canada with her family in 1951 at the age of 21. She met her future husband, Emil Stach, and was married in Winnipeg in 1953.
She was predeceased by her parents, Otto and Else; her sister Gerda; and brother Alfons; and also her husband Emil in 1997.
She is survived by her daughters, Gela, Karen (Les) and Irmi. Also grandsons, Felix Gaber (Nancy), Leon Gaber (Tonya), Nolan Jemison (Jill), and Kyle Jemison (Suzanne). Great-grandchildren are Owen, Eric and Charlotte Gaber, Nikki and Colin Jemison, and Ethan and Brayden Gaber.
There are many fond memories of growing up on Sherbrook St., spending many weekends at the cottage at Bird Lake, and helping with and benefitting from the large garden at their property near Oakbank. In 1997 she moved to her condo on Quailridge Road, and eventually moved to the house on Wolseley, a stone's throw from St. Peter's Lutheran Church where she was an active member. Mom loved to do handicrafts, garden, as well as cook and bake for her family. She was a very strong and generous person, and was fortunate enough to live independently until the very end.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to St. Peter's Lutheran Church on Walnut St., Winnipeg, MB, or to the Heart & Stroke Foundation.

Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • My maiden name is Mary Sinosich and I used to live next door and see your mom working in her garden all the time in the summer. I would see her every morning shaking your duvets to fluff them as our living room window faced one of your bedrooms. I'm very sorry for your loss, she was a lovely woman. - Posted by: Mary Peluso (Neighbour at 71 Sherbrook St.) on: Jan 17, 2021
