OLGA (OLLIE) TCHIR
March 19, 1926 - March 6, 2022
It was with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Olga Tchir on Sunday, March 6, 2022. However, we rejoice in that she has gone to heaven to be with her precious Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
Olga was born in Winnipeg and worked as a secretary for Agriculture Canada Retiring in 1994. Through most of her life, Ollie shared her time between family in Winnipeg and the weekly visits to her parents and family in Hazelridge, Manitoba. She loved to travel and made trips to the United States, Cuba, Europe and throughout Canada. Ollie was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #146 (Springfield).
In later years, she moved to Lion's Manor, where she was involved with activities such as resident entertainment and fund raisers. Her true joy was being involved with the roof top flower garden, where she spent countless hours of her time.
With declining health, Ollie moved to the personal care ward of Lions Manor. The family wishes to extend heart felt appreciation to the Staff of Lions Manor for the years of care and compassion they showed her.
Olga was predeceased by her parents, Mary and Harry; sisters, Anne, Rose and Nettie and brothers, Peter and Nicholas.
She will always be remembered by her nieces, Samantha-Jane and Donna; nephews, Robert, Jim, David and Norman; as well as her dear friend Jennifer. Olga was also a great-aunt and a great-great-aunt.
A funeral service was held at Korban Funeral Chapel with Rev. Walter Dudych officiating on Friday, March 11, 2022. Cremation has taken place with interment at All Saints Cemetery at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Bridges For Peace Canada.
