JONINA SIGRUN HUCUL (published on February 23, 2011)

JONINA SIGRUN HUCUL It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of our mother and Nana, Jonina Hucul, on Thursday, February 17, 2011 at Concordia Hospital, with family members at her side. Jonina will be dearly missed by her youngest son Peter Jr. (Karen) and his son Derek; her son George (Lory) and their daughters Corrie and Jody; her only daughter Diane (Bob Minaker) and their daughter Joanne (Bryan Hogeveen) and son Brian (Alissa). She is also survived by her loving great-grandchildren, Ayden, Taryk and Maylah Hogeveen and Lauren Minaker. She will be dearly missed by her brother Arnold (Jo) Page and sister Irene Morrison of Winnipeg and her sister-in-law Kathleen Pranschke in Ottawa. Jonina was predeceased by her loving husband Peter; her parents Jim and Sigga Page; her brother Roy; sister-in-law Soley and brother-in-law Jim Morrison. Jonina was born July 2, 1926 in Hnausa, Manitoba. She grew up in this small Icelandic community north of Gimli and later met her soulmate, Peter Hucul, from Camp Morton. They were married in First Lutheran Church, Winnipeg in 1948. Together they built a strong network of close friends in Winnipeg and at the cottage they later built at Hnausa on Lake Winnipeg. While Peter worked on the railroad Jonina took pride in being a mother and homemaker. Once Peter retired they developed a keen interest in both curling and golf. Jonina was also a long time member of the Clifton Ladies Bowling League. She developed many friendships through these activities, known for her caring and friendly smile. She shared her caring and compassion as a volunteer at Seven Oaks Hospital for several years following Peter's passing in 1999. Jonina's true passion was found in her love for her family. She took great pride in the many milestones and accomplishments of each of her children and her grandchildren. She felt blessed to be loved as Nana by her grandchildren and to have lived to be loved by her four great-grandchildren. The family is appreciative of the many acts of kindness and friendship Nana received from the staff and residents of the Irene Baron Eden Centre this past year. Thanks also to the staff at Concordia Hospital for their support during the final days. As per Jonina's wishes, a private memorial service will be held at First Lutheran Church. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to First Lutheran Church, 580 Victor Street or the Canadian Cancer Society, 193 Sherbrook Street.
