JULIE CHABLUK  (published on October 12, 2010)

JULIE CHABLUK ( nee GRODECKI ) Peacefully on October 7, 2010, with family at her side, Julie was called to her Lord, after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. She will be lovingly remembered by her sons, Gary and daughters, Kelsey and Katelyn and their mother Emily and Brad (Roberta) and sons Daemon and Aaron, daughter-in-law Pat (Jim) and sons Paul and Devin (Breanne) and extended family, Naomi (Jeff), Patrick and Brian, sisters Nellie, Bernice, Jennie (Jim), Sophie, Francis, Mary, Rose (Bill), Gloria (Marvin) and brothers, Albin, John (Naomi), Benny, Lawrence, sisters-in-law, Sophie and Mary, brothers-in-law, Alex, George, Elmer, Lawrence (Ida), Barry (Irene), Peter (Dolores), Ernie (Diane), and John (Emily) and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. Julie was predeceased by her parents Michael and Mary, husband Julius, son Don, sisters Francis, Vicky, Margaret, Anne, Lorraine and brothers, Stanley and Peter. Julie was born in Bankend, SK, June 24th, 1930. She was raised on the family farm. She moved to Winnipeg where she met and married her husband Julius. They raised their family in South Transcona. Mom was a homemaker. She was a phenomenal cook, especially her traditional Ukrainian cuisine and her baking. She always out did herself on holiday suppers. Her perogies were always in high demand by her many customers and family. She had a hard time to refuse them their orders even when she was ill. Mom's other passions were flowers and gardening. She was a hard worker and a great housekeeper. She enjoyed babysitting with her grandchildren and babysat many of the children in the neighbourhood over the years, many of whom still referred to her as Aunty Julie. She will be missed by her many good neighbours. Mom had a big heart and would give to the less fortunate. She always put others before herself. She was a believer in Jesus Christ, which was apparent by the way she led her life. She was an active member of St. Michael's Parish. She left a lasting impression on anyone she met. Mom also loved animals and will be missed dearly by her little pom, Bailey. The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the St. Boniface Hospital Emergency Dept. and the Palliative Care with particular thanks to the staff on Floor 5E Medicine, who showed mom such compassion and sensitivity during her stay. Active Pallbearers will be Lawrence, Peter, Ernie, Paul and Devin Chabluk and Jim Legg. Honorary Pallbearers will be Elmer, Barry and John Chabluk, Steve Kowerko, Tom Mondor and Art Baker. Prayers will be held on Tuesday, October 12, 2010 at 7:00 p.m. at St. Michael's Ukrainian Church, 400 Day St. Funeral service will follow on Wednesday, October 13, 2010 at 10:00 a.m., also at the Church. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Julie's memory to the CancerCare Foundation, 675 McDermot Ave., Winnipeg MB R3E 0V9 or to St. Michael's Parish Mortgage or to a charity of your choice.
