MICHALINA (LEE) RUDYK With deep sadness, we announce the passing of Michalina (Lee) Rudyk on April 9, 2004 at Riverview Health Centre. She was predeceased by her parents; her sisters, Mary and Phyllis; and her brother Sam. Lee was born in Meleb, MB, the youngest child of Anton and Xenia Stackursky. The family moved to Rathwell, MB soon after, where Lee attended Cherry Valley School, and later completed her education at St. Johns Tech. She married Peter and together they built a home in East Kildonan, where they resided for 37 years. After retirement, they resided in St. Vital. Lee loved her home, especially gardening, her love of the land revealed by the annual tradition of berry-picking and mushroom gathering. She enjoyed entertaining, hosting countless parties and gatherings for family and friends. She was a very independent woman, ahead for her time, with a strong sense of social justice. She was a member of the Voice of Women, Canada Peace Council, Association of United Ukrainian Canadians and a founding member of the Angus McKay Home and School Association. She enjoyed curling with the Rossmere and later Elmwood Ladies Leagues. She also enjoyed bowling and was a founding member of the Twilight Bowling League and later, joined the St. Vital Roundenders Golden Age League. Through these activities, she made many lifelong friends. She was the heart of her family and its visionary. She constantly encouraged them to fulfil their potential, and her spirit will continue to inspire them. Remaining to cherish her memory are Peter, her husband of 59 years, her daughter Barbara, her son Gregory and his wife Marlene, and her granddaughter Claire. A memorial service will be held on Thursday, April 15 at 1:00 p.m. at Cropo Funeral Chapel, 1442 Main St. CROPO FUNERAL CHAPEL 586-8044
