LILLIAN PALASCHUK (published on September 20, 2008)



LILLIAN PALASCHUK On September 16, 2008, God's gentle hand reached down to call our dear mother into His kingdom. However sad, Lillian Palaschuk in peaceful comfort drifted from her life with her loving family by her side to be one of our heavenly angels. Our mother was predeceased by her father William Spiwak, mother Pauline Spiwak, brother Edward Spiwak and husband Dr. Peter Palaschuk. Left to remember her most fondly and lovingly are sons Greg (Lesia), Robert (Nadine) and Peter (Julie). Still giggling at her noise making gadgets and nibbling on her plentiful bags of treats remain her four precious grandchildren; Alexa, Christian, Nicholas and Andris. Born in Anola, Manitoba on October 2, 1930 Lillian and her family soon moved to Winnipeg where she attended school. Her education culminated in a career as a hair stylist at Eatons in Winnipeg where she flourished styling the hair of many prominent Canadians. Following her marriage, she focused her energies on her family life. We will be forever thankful for the sacrifices and unconditional love she provided throughout our lives. In her spare hours, Lillian was very generous with her volunteer time and served on many committees with the Holy Trinity Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral, Manitoba Chiropractors' Association Women's Auxiliary and The Holy Family Nursing Home. Her creative talents were many. Her artistry was expressed in her sewing, crocheting, knitting and needlepoint. She loved to share her ideas and knowledge and spent countless hours producing scarves and mittens for those less fortunate. To our dear mother, her family was a gift she held very close to her heart. We shared daily stories, countless jokes, private moments and all life's celebrations. Her extended family were her treasured friends. Some were life long, some neighbors and some she developed later in life. They were her strength, her sounding board and sometimes her polka partner - all irreplaceable. Throughout the latter years of our mother's life, with decreased mobility and increasing need for medical care, the kindness and commitment to her well being and comfort were most professionally managed by Dr. John Mayba. We are eternally grateful for his dedication to our mother. Although our mother's time in the hospital was brief, we were touched by the genuine care and concern of the attending professionals at the Concordia Hospital emergency and intensive care units. Special thanks are extended to Dr. Chan, Dr. Strumther and nurse Tina. On Friday, September 19, 2008 a private family funeral took place at Holy Trinity Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral, followed by an internment at the Glen Eden Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Holy Trinity Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral, 1175 Main St. VICHNAYA PAMYAT KORBAN FUNERAL CHAPEL 956-2193
