January 12, 1926 – January 24, 2019
Stephanie Koshlay (nee Malowaney) of Calgary, AB, passed away on Thursday, January 24, 2019 at the age of 93 years and twelve days, from kidney failure caused by complications of Diabetes. Stephanie was born and raised in the Rama area. She started working as an egg candler and retired as a hospital aide at the Snow Lake hospital. She was musically talented and could sing and chord the guitar. She used the Lord’s Prayer to time her baking, so it was done to perfection. It is certain there are Heavenly dishes being prepared! Feisty and hardworking, Stephanie was always busy with the next new craft or recipes. She was also an excellent gardener with a super green thumb! A few years ago, her doctor decided to do a cognizance test; he asked, “What year is it?”
She replied, “If you don’t know, get me a calendar and I’ll tell you!” Predeceased by her beloved husband, Sam, in 2001 and her daughter Shauna in 1994, Stephanie is survived by her daughter, Regina; granddaughter, Amber McKenzie and great-grandchildren, Hunter and Jade.
