MYRON GRABOWECKY (published on January 09, 2010)



MYRON GRABOWECKY Peacefully, after five years of intermittent illness, on January 3, 2010. Myron was born in 1926, the youngest of four boys and one girl, near the village of Kuty, in Ukraine. He served during the Second World War at the tender age of 17 where he learned to speak Polish, English and German. He continued to serve with armed forces in England for three years before coming to Winnipeg in 1949 to live with his uncle and cousins. Myron worked as a tailor for 18 years, and then for 23 years with the Winnipeg School Division One, before retiring in 1991. It was at the sewing factory where Myron met Erika, his beloved wife of 57 years. They attended St. John's Lutheran Church where Myron served on church council for many years. He very much enjoyed singing, dancing, and playing volleyball, soccer, cribbage and chess with cherished family and friends. He is survived by his wife Erika, sons Bill (Kathy) and Rick (Janine), and beautiful grandchildren Eric, Holly, Lisa, and Hannah. Myron is predeceased by his parents and siblings, all in Ukraine. A memorial service was held for immediate family. Myron's ashes will be interned at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba or the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. The Grabowecky family gives special thanks to Dr. T. Babick, Carolyn, Oleh, Reo and many others at Holy Family Nursing Home, Concordia Hospital, Riverview Rehabilitation Centre and the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service.
