She will also be missed by her brother-in-law Mike (Tilley) Boguski; sisters-in-law, Elsie (late Joe) Piwniuk, Iris (late Morris) Musey, and Ann (Don) Lannoo. Her many nieces and nephews will also miss her.
Anne was predeceased by her parents, Mykyta and Stephania Skolosky; a baby son at birth; her sisters, Lavinia (William) Kimmie, Marian Skolosky; her brother Peter (Mary) Skolosky and sisters-in-law, Mildred Sandvik, Elizabeth (Jim) Welechenko.
Anne was born on April 25, 1932 to Ukrainian immigrant parents. She grew up on the family farm in Gronlid, Saskatchewan with her older sister and brother. She went to a one room school house that had grades one to ten. At school there were many girls named Anne, so she chose a new name, Alvina. She continued to use this name, as well as Anne, throughout her life. When she finished grade ten, she went to work as a nurse's aide in Melfort, Saskatchewan.
In her early 20s, Anne moved to Winnipeg and worked in a candy factory. At a dance, in Winnipeg, she met her husband Roy. They were married on Roy's birthday in Roblin, Manitoba, on October 6, 1956. Most recently, she spent their 64th anniversary in Grace Hospital, then moved to Deer Lodge and finally Riverview.
Anne was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Her greatest joy in life was spending time with her family. She was very loving, patient, gentle, kind and sensitive. She always encouraged and helped in whatever way she could. Spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren was always a cherished time.
Anne enjoyed family gatherings and always made sure there was lots to eat and plenty to send home with us. Ukrainian Christmas Eve dinner was our special family tradition that Anne hosted and lovingly prepared. When she was no longer able to do it all, she still contributed with her kutia, holubtsi, pyrizhky and pyrogies, which were all greatly appreciated. Her's were the best!
Anne and Roy enjoyed time together fishing, especially ice fishing, berry and mushroom picking and going to the beach with family. Watching baseball and curling was another shared interest. They loved going on road trips for the experience of seeing other places, as well as visiting relatives. Vacations to visit with the children and grandchildren were always special.
Anne always enjoyed a good cup of tea or sometimes coffee with "just a little more milk" that her health care workers learned about and happily provided. Whenever her natural brunette hair was admired, it always made her smile.
The family wishes to thank all medical and support staff at Riverview Health Centre 2W, Deer Lodge Centre 2E, Grace Hospital 4N, for all the care and kindness provided to Anne. The family also wishes to thank Anne's Home Care team and Comforts of Home with companion Terri for their compassionate care. We are grateful for all efforts made during the pandemic to keep Anne safe from contracting Covid. We are thankful for all the memorable weekly virtual visits that were arranged at Deer Lodge and our final one at Riverview. Thank you to all family and friends for your kind support.
Due to Covid restrictions, there will be a private family funeral at Glen Lawn Funeral Home and Cemetery at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday May 27, 2021.
In lieu of flowers, if you wish, a donation may be made in Anne's memory to Deer Lodge Centre Foundation at 2109 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg, MB R3J 0L3 or Riverview Health Centre Foundation at One Morley Ave, Winnipeg, MB R3L 2P4.
