Mrs. Shtohryn was born on April 1, 1929, in Tustoholovy, Ukraine, the daughter of Osyp and Ahafia Barwinsky. She married Dmytro Shtohryn on September 3, 1955, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, and they shared 64 years together of wedded bliss. She is survived by her son Bohdar Oleh of Champaign, daughter Liudoslava Vira of Phoenixville, PA, and brother Jaroslaw's family in Winnipeg. She was preceded in death by her parents, brother, and husband.
Mrs. Shtohryn studied biology at the University of Manitoba, specializing in microbiology. From 1952 until 1955 she was employed in the Microbiology Department in the Laboratory of the Winnipeg General Hospital; from 1955 until 1960 in the Department of Microbiology at the Provincial Laboratory of Canada in Ottawa; from 1962 to 1986 at Mercy Hospital in Urbana, in charge of the Microbiology Department of the Laboratory from 1982 to 1986.
She was active in the PTA at Kenwood Public School in Champaign and the Women's Cosmopolitan Club at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Eustachia was devoted to her husband and children, always putting their needs before her own. She was an excellent cook and was happiest when preparing food for family and friends - she was a magnificent hostess of many dinner parties. She also hosted lavish cocktail receptions at their home for the participants of 25 conferences on Ukrainian subjects held at the University of Illinios, UC, from 1982 until 2006.
The family would like to extend its deepest gratitude to the CNA's, nurses, and staff of Reflections Memory Care and Transitions Hospice. Their compassion, patience, and kindness were exemplary and a comfort to the family.
