Date of Passing: Aug 08, 2021Offer Condolences or Memory Make a donation to CancerCare Manitoba Foundation
It is with heavy hearts that the family announces the passing of their dear mother and Baba, Olga Hawryshko, on August 8, 2021 at the age of 79.
Olga will be lovingly remembered by her daughters, Donna and Susan (Larry), and her grandsons and pride and joy, Drayven and Corson. She will be missed by her siblings, Rose, Adele, John (Kathy), Jean, Ann, Alice, Walter and Gene; her sisters-in-law, Loraine and Susan, numerous nephews and nieces, her husband's family and friends from her congregation. Olga was predeceased by her husband Peter, and her brothers, Paul and Roman.
Olga and Peter were married for 32 years. They enjoyed travelling and visiting with family and friends. Olga cherished her grandsons, Drayven and Corson. They were Baba's boys. As one of Jehovah's Witnesses, her hope of the resurrection helped her cope through her illness especially John 5:28, 29 which says "all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out."
The family would like to thank Dr. Cindy Pachal and staff at Plessis Medical Centre, as well staff at CancerCare Manitoba and St. Boniface Hospital.
Donations can be made in Olga's name to the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation.
A private service will be held at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, August 15, 2021. You are invited to join us virtually by accessing the livestream link at www.greenacresfuneralhome.com in the upcoming services tab.

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)
Our sincere condolences on the loss of Olga. She was a very good long time neighbor (her and Peter both). We had many conversations over the years. She gave me lots of tips when I started to make my own pierogies. She will be greatly missed.... Sending love and hugs... Judy & Dennis - Posted by: Judy & Dennis Bourget (Neighbor) on: Aug 16, 2021
My deepest sympathy to Donna, Susan, Larry, Drayven and Corvan and to all family members and friends. Living so far away I did not get to see Aunty Olga very much but I cherish the times I did. - Posted by: Dawn Ambrose Wright (Niece) on: Aug 15, 2021
