Sylvia Grace Yaremko
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Sylvia Yaremko on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 13, 2018 at Concordia Hospital. She passed away peacefully with family at her side.
Sylvia was an inspiration, a ray of light, and leaves behind to mourn her husband Michael of 57 years, son Jason (Cheryl) and grandchildren Erin & Jeffrey, son Greg (Karen) and grandchildren Zabrina & Drake and daughter Christine (Ferenc), son Kurtis (Leslie) and her cat Merla. She also leaves to mourn her brother Steve, sister Mary, and brother Joe (Josie), as well as many nieces and nephews.
Sylvia began her life journey as Grace (Sylvia) Kachur on a farm near Canora, in east-central Saskatchewan. Her life revolved around work on the farm and “across the line” in the city of Winnipeg, where she also worked as a health care aide. Sylvia eventually met Michael Yaremko, a young farmer who also worked seasonally in Manitoba as a miner. The two soon married, and, a few years later, moved to Winnipeg and raised four children (three born in Saskatchewan, the fourth, Kurtis, a city slicker). In the years that followed, Mike brought home the bacon while Sylvia forged the foundations of the family, feeding the clan, raising the brood, working as a wife, homemaker, and outside the home in jobs that included daycare worker and veteran Avon representative. Through the years, she filled our home with love and compassion: a safe, welcoming place for family and friends, filled with care, warmth, and wonderful food. From Saskatchewan to Winnipeg (and beyond), family and friends were very important to her. From family gatherings and coffee shop get-togethers, to helping friends in need, time and again she demonstrated her generous spirit.
She will be dearly missed, deeply appreciated, and warmly remembered by her family and friends.
Many thanks again extended to the wonderful staff at Concordia Hospital who provided exemplary care for Sylvia as well as her family at a difficult time.
