Vera Dillabough
November 28, 1925 – May 24, 2019

Born Novermber 28th, 1925.
It is with much sorrow and regret that I inform you that our loving mother, Vera Dillabough, née Bondar, passed away on Friday, May 24th, 2019 at 6:30 am, PST.
After having successfully battled receiving a hip replacement operation, she suffered a stroke on the left side of her body. Following this, she lost her ability to converse in English and Ukrainian remained as her only spoken language. Vera left peacefully while the birds were singing and the flowers were blooming, letting her family know that everything would be okay. Life must go on.
Vera had 4 children with her first husband, Wasyl: Jerry, Walter, Nadya and Kolina. Jerry predeceased her on July 6th, 2012, as did her niece, Connie, on December 6th, 2017. Vera grew up in the Ukiraine with her mother, Ahafia, father, Ehareon, and sisters, Lida and Manya. Lida now lives in Sadiv, Ukraine, while Manya resides in Kharkov, Ukraine. Vera leaves behind two grandchildren from Kolina and Robert: Matthew and Alixandra; three grandchildren from Jerry (predeceased): Richele, Laura and Connie (predeceased); and two grandchildren from Walter: Ross and Stephen. Vera also leaves behind one great-grandchild from Laura, Ariel; five great-grandchildren from Connie: Brendan, Amanda, Jolene, Taylor and Lauren; three great-grandchildren from Ross and Tracy: Collin, Zachary and Colleena; and three great-grandchildren from Stephen: David, Gage and Mia. Additionally, Vera leaves behind five great great-grandchildren from Ariel: Joseph, Trinity, Zadie, Niko and Josiah; and three great great-grandchildren from Amanda: Draven, Adrea, and stepson, Drakko.
While Vera spent most of her life here in Canada, she was a World War 2 survivor. She and Wasyl, with two young boys, travelled throughout many European countries before ultimately deciding it was necessary to move to Canada to escape the war. They only had $11 in their pockets when they arrived in Montréal. Vera worked in a snack bar in Alton, Orangeville that she owned with Wasyl. Later, they moved near Prescott, Ontario where they purchased a farm. Five years later as Wasyl’s health worsened, they moved to Brockville, Ontario where she worked for ten years in food service at a psychiatric hospital. After the passing of Wasyl, Vera remarried to Gerald Dillabough, and they remained together until his death 10 years later. Vera then moved to Vancouver to live closer to her daughter Kolina’s family.
Over her lifetime, Vera learned to speak five languages. She was extremely adventurous and could often be found in nearby forests or bushes picking wild mushrooms and berries. Baba, as many called her, loved her family with all of her heart. She enjoyed playing board games like Rummikub, and could transform any garden into a true sanctuary. Baba finally moved from West Vancouver, BC to Bear River, NS to spend her last few months under the care of her loving daughter, Nadya, and Nadya’s husband, Jeff. Vera’s strength, courage, wit, and determination will always be admired. All those who had the pleasure of knowing her will remember her fondly. May she Rest In Peace.
Written by Kolina and Alix Logan for Jerry, Walter, Nadya and Kolina’s families.
