THOMAS FRYZA (published on August 08, 2009)



THOMAS FRYZA December 2, 1918 - August 6, 2009 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our Dad and Grandpa, Thomas Fryza Sr. at the age of 90 years at the Ste. Anne Hospital, with his family by his side on the evening of Thursday, August 6, 2009. Remaining to forever cherish Thomas' memory are his son Tom Jr.; daughter-in-law Maureen; grandsons Lyle and Colin; granddaughters Stefanie and Jacquelene; dear friend Vi Simmons; brothers Mike and John; sisters Jenny and Helen and sisters-in-law Sophie and Nellie, as well as many nieces, nephews and friends. He was predeceased by his wife Flora (Zaharenchek); his parents Michael and Marianna; brothers, Bill, Alex and sister Mary. Dad was born in Poland and came to Canada with his parents and siblings in August 1929. They settled in the Monominto area where he grew up. He met his love Flora and married on February 12, 1944. They lived on a small farm and built a business of milking cows and grain farming. Dad and Mom did little travelling, but they did go to Las Vegas and Arizona a few times and to the Rockies. Dad and Mom traded homes with Tommy and Maureen in 1981, but never stopped their interest in the farm. Dad would come over every day to make sure we were doing things right. He loved nothing more than spending his day on the tractor and did so right up to the end. During his last few times in the hospital he still never lost his love of farming. One could be sure to find him on numerous occasions returning home from the hospital and heading directly into the fields for hours. He was a true farmer right to the very end. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Tuesday, August 11, 2009 at 11:00 a.m. in the Our Lady of Hope Roman Catholic Church, Anola, MB, with Rev. Fr. Owen Steeves, presiding. Interment will follow in Monominto Cemetery. For those who wish, viewing will be held prior to Mass. The Family would like to thank the staff and doctors at the Ste. Anne Hospital for the care and support that they have provided. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Manitoba Lung Association, 629 McDermot Avenue, Winnipeg, MB, R3A 1P6.
