AMELIA (MILLIE) PEREHINEC (published on October 04, 2008)

AMELIA (MILLIE) PEREHINEC (nee DUNIK) On 25 September 2008, Amelia Perehinec rejoined her husband of 61 years, Nickolis, who predeceased her in 1996. A fiercely determined and independent soul, she continued to live on her own in their home until three days before her 94th birthday when she moved into the Holy Family Home in May of this year. She is survived by her sons, John and William and their families and will be sadly missed but remembered with love and gratitude. She was born on 24 May 1914 in Winnipeg where she married Nickolis in 1935. Together they raised their two sons determined to ensure their sons, their grandchildren and their great-grandchildren would have a greater range of choice in life than had been available to them; and to provide some means to help give effect to the choices made by their descendants. As well as living her life for her family, she also had a strong commitment to her church and community. While she was able, she contributed what she could and gave unstintingly of her time, talent and effort to work for the betterment of the common weal. In accord with her wishes, our Mom has been cremated and her ashes will be interred alongside Dad's at Holy Family Cemetery. A divine liturgy and burial service for a devoted Mother, Grandmother and Great-Grandmother will be offered at 1:00 p.m., Monday, October 6 by Father Isidore Dziadyk, OSMB, at St. Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic Church (corner of Arlington Street and Bannerman Avenue). Her family would like to thank the staff at the Holy Family Home, and in particular those on the St. John's Ward, for their care and kindness during Mom's brief stay with them. In lieu of flowers, for those who might wish to do so, we ask a donation be made to a charity of your choice where it would benefit the living. Mom would like that. Vichnaya Pamyat
