STEVE MUROWSKI (published on January 04, 2010)

STEVE MUROWSKI Peacefully, surrounded by his loving family, Steve passed away at Riverview Health Centre on Thursday, December 31, 2009. Dad died as he lived, with dignity and grace. He was much loved by his family and friends and was respected by all who knew him. Steve is survived by his wife, Lenore; children, Theresa, Judy, Lawrence (Jan), Lenore (Dean) and Janet (John); grandchildren, Sarah, Jesse, Meghan, Carlee, David, Brendan, Alex, Steven, Grace and Lindsay. Dad was predeceased by his father, Stanley Murawski; mother, Eleanor Murawski; and brother, Felix Murawski. Dad was born in Poland and immigrated to Canada in 1928. The family settled in Alonsa, Manitoba and later moved to McCreary, Manitoba. Dad had many happy memories of his life on the farm. He joined the army for a brief time, but did not see any duty overseas. Dad eventually returned to Manitoba and found work in the boiler trade and was hired on with Anthes Foundry. He remained with Anthes for many years and then worked with Engineering and Plumbing Supplies, now known as Wolseley until his retirement at age 82, with over 40 years of service. Dad was a walking encyclopedia of heating and plumbing knowledge. His expertise is irreplaceable. Dad never allowed technology to get in the way of the personal contact with customers and coworkers that he valued so much. He was an avid gardener and his award winning garden was the envy of all. Family and friends all benefited from the fresh produce. Another of his favourite pastimes was hunting and fishing especially with his son and grandson. Perhaps Dad's greatest quality was his generosity. He believed in supporting those in need. His generosity extended to many various charities. Dad received recognition from the Knights of Columbus for his charitable work on their behalf. He also donated blood to Canadian Blood Services throughout his life, exceeding over 100 donations. One of his favourite charitable organizations was the Humane Society; he loved animals of all types. All family pets loved Dad and knew that a trip to Dad's home usually meant a treat of some sort. Nothing was more important to Dad than his family. His capacity for love and caring was amazing. He will be deeply missed, but his kind and caring spirit will live on in his children and grandchildren. Funeral Mass will be Celebrated on Wednesday evening, January 6, 2010 at 7:00 p.m., in Our Lady of Perpetual Help Roman Catholic Church, 4588 Roblin Blvd., with Rev. Msgr. Maurice Comeault, P. H., presiding. Honorary pallbearers will be Jesse Finlay, David Finlay, Brendan Ford, Alex Greba, Steven Murowski, Leon Majcher, Eggert Bell. Dad's family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Dr. VanHorne and Cathy; his homecare nurses especially Barb, the staff at the St. Boniface Heart Failure Clinic and all the staff on 3 East at Riverview Health Centre for their care and compassion during this difficult time. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Riverview Health Centre Foundation. You make a living by what you get. You make a life by what you give. - Winston Churchill
