Mary Bartko (nee Rachmistruk)
It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of our mother, wife, baba and sister, Mary Bartko on April 12, 2019 at the age of 84 years.
Mary passed away after a long and courageous illness. She is left to mourn by her beloved husband, Walter of 62 years. Walter was a devoted husband who went to endless lengths to care and love for Mary. She will be greatly missed by her two children, Susan (George) Sterling and Mark Bartko; five grandchildren, Adam (Samantha), Peter, Rob, Tom and Andrew; and her only brother, Ernie (Lena) Rachmistruk.
Mary’s greatest joy was being an elementary school teacher and reminiscing about all the children she taught. She was a devoted member of St. John’s Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral. The family would like to extend their gratitude to the Capital Care Grandview staff and the medical staff on Unit 54 at Grey Nuns Community Hospital all of whom provided compassionate care for Mary.
Funeral Rite Thursday, April 18 at 10:00 a.m. at St. John Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral, 10951 – 107 Street, Edmonton. Reverend Father Cornell Zubritsky officiating with interment in Evergreen Memorial Gardens.
Nos plus sincères sympathies à la famille et aux amis de Mary
