June 9, 1945 - February 25, 2022

After a long and courageous battle with cancer, Lisa left to be with the Lord, her beloved husband who passed November 13, 2010, all her dogs, especially Zeke and all that have gone before her.
Lisa passed on her terms, her way, with her family at her side. She leaves to mourn her children, Bunny and Billy (Bowman), FJ and Marcela (Wurm); grandchildren, Schuyler, Carisa, Adrian, Andrew, Aleyna and great-grandchild Violet. Estranged son Barry.
She is survived by her beloved sister Bea Burdey; sister-in-law Irene Wurm and nieces and nephews. Lisa had many friends and some very close ones that meant so much. The list is too long to mention, you know who you are and we thank you.
Lisa comes from a long and strong Ukrainian family. Lisa was born and raised in Winnipeg before venturing to Ontario, where she spent many years working in several careers and met Frank. They married, raised children and they moved to Manitoba to endeavour in many ventures, including farming and driving school bus. Lisa spent many years of service for the St. Laurent Municipality including Secretary-Treasurer and Councillor, until she retired. She loved time fishing, camping, trail rides, travelling and being with friends and family. Lisa moved from the farm to the lake and spent many happy years there, before returning to Winnipeg.
Thank you to Palliative Care and the MAID team who made her wishes possible and gave compassion and dignity at the end of this life as she moves on.
In lieu of flowers, you may wish to donate to a charity of choice.
As she wished, cremation has taken place and a small Celebration of Life service will be held April 2, 2022 at 10:00 a.m. at MacKenzie Funeral Home in Stonewall. Internment will take place in Kitchener, Ontario at a later date, so she may rest with parents.

Condolences & Memories (5 entries)

  • We first meet as teenagers when my family returned to Winnipeg in 1960. Then when I married and moved to Surrey BC, you called us to say hello. I have not heard from Cookie in many years but I have remembered your voice. I missed seeing you and your family. Bob Koblensky - Coldstream BC - Posted by: Bob Koblensky (Cousin) on: Mar 17, 2022

  • Dear Bunny, FJ , Barry and families. My heartfelt sympathy on the passing of your Mom. We enjoyed many great times visiting at the farm over the years- barn dances, bonfires, hay rides and celebrating birthdays. I’m sure your Mom lived life to the fullest enjoying her family. Bless her. Thinking of you all with Love. - Posted by: Donna McLaughlin (Cousin) on: Mar 12, 2022

  • Wishing "Cookie" godspeed on her journey. I have often thought of the days/years gone by with love, celebrations, and family all around. Yes, times of fun on the farm, family dinners at Auntie Jean's, always full of warmth and good ol' Ukrainian food. My heart feels sadness as we send another family member to join many others. Family get-togethers have been a source of pride for me. Memories remain. Thanks Cookie for your part. ❤ - Posted by: Betty-Jean (Spakowski) (Cousin) on: Mar 12, 2022

  • May she rest in peace now. She was always a fun-loving woman who enjoyed a good time and entertaining in her home with Frank. Our families had numerous get-togethers on the farm where there was an abundance of warm hospitality. Love you Lisa! - Posted by: Sharon McPhee (Cousin) on: Mar 12, 2022
