KATERYNA ZAHORODA (published on October 07, 2011)

KATERYNA ZAHORODA It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother and grandmother, Kateryna Zahoroda, on October 6, 2011, at the age of 86. Predeceased by her loving husband Alexander in 1996, Kateryna is survived by her daughter Julia and husband Myron Kurjewicz, grandchildren Laryssa (Tim), Adam (Rosalind) and Theresa; daughter Halyna and husband Brian Ferens, grandchildren Christopher, Nicholas and Adrian, and extended family in Ukraine. Kateryna was born on November 1, 1924 in selo Malniv, rayon Mostyska in Western Ukraine. At a young age, she was taken to Germany and placed in a labour camp during the Second World War. After the war she moved to England, where she married her beloved Alexander in 1949. They immigrated to Canada soon after and set up residence in Winnipeg. Together they took an active role in the Ukrainian community, supporting various Ukrainian organizations including Institute Prosvita, Ukrainian National Army, Markian Shushkewich Ridna Shkola, the League for the Liberation of Ukraine, the Brotherhood of Ukrainian Catholics (BUK), Ukrainian Canadian Congress, youth groups Plast and SUM, Sts. Vladimir and Olga Cathedral and numerous Ukrainian dance groups and choirs. She particularly loved listening to her Ukrainian music and instilled that love in her children and grandchildren. She attended all their concerts but particularly rejoiced in seeing her children and grandchildren celebrating their Ukrainian heritage by singing, playing and dancing to her beloved Ukrainian music on stage. She also spent hundreds of painstaking hours embroidering beautiful blouses and shirts for family and friends to wear on stage and they continue to be admired and worn with great pride to this very day. Kateryna will always be remembered by family and friends for her boundless energy, sharp wit and her devotion to her children and grandchildren. The family would like to thank Dr. Babick for his compassionate care over many years as well as the employees of the Palliative Care Program. Special thanks to nurses Alison and Lana for their support and assistance during this difficult time. Divine Liturgy will be celebrated at the Cathedral of Sts. Vladimir Olga, 115 McGregor Street on Saturday, October 8, 2011 at 9:30 a.m., with Rt. Rev. Msgr. Mitrat M. Buyachok officiating. Interment will follow at All Saints Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to CancerCare Manitoba Foundation or to a Ukrainian charity of one's choice. We were so blessed to have had such a wonderful woman in our lives and now we will have a beautiful angel to watch over us. Rest in peace Baba K ; we will always love you and never forget you.
