Irene was born September 21, 1945 in Schlupfing, Germany. She and her family began a new life in Canada when she was 5. She grew up in Winnipeg where she attended Holy Ghost School, St. Mary's Academy and Garden City Collegiate. In later years she attended part-time R.R.C.C.-Interior Design course. Many of her school mates became life-long friends. For 37 years she worked for the Manitoba Dept. of Highway's and Transportation and left her position only when her illness forced her to do so. Irene was a lover of nature and an avid camper. Each spring she looked forward to spending summer in her camper at Birds Hill Park. She took great pleasure in bringing her arts and crafts to her campsite, where she pursued creative activities she liked in a place that she loved. Nana had a keen sense of camping skills that were passed on to Tim, Andrew and Sean in their earlier years. Nana devoted her time and constant love to all her beloved nephews. Irene liked to travel and kept many photographs that reminded her of places she visited in the company of relatives and friends, all of whom were very important to her. Many will remember Irene as a person who took time to help others. She helped her friends and volunteered her time to work with organizations such as Variety Club during its annual telethon and in her earlier years, Girl Guides of Canada, where she shared her love of the outdoors with many young women for 14 years. She will be missed by all her faithful life-long friends who generously gave their time to bring comfort and laughter to her bedside : Donna Finkleman, Joan Bochniarz, Wanda Beszterda, Chris Holota, Chris Starak, Helen Burton (Lazowski), Christine Sauer, Margaret Roxburgh, Erna Braun, Ann Nemis, Huguette Letourneau (Ottawa), Leona Andrews, Tom McDermott, Chrissy Romanovych from Vegas and Mama - Mrs. Romanovych. She will also be missed by all her numerous co-workers of 37 years.

Interment to follow beside her mother in Holy Ghost Cemetery. Reception will follow interment at the Church. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Irene's memory to Jocelyn House.

Remember me when I am gone away, Gone far away into the silent land; When you can no more hold me by the hand, Nor I half turn to go, yet turning stay. Remember me when no more, day by day, You tell me of our future that you planned; Only remember me; you understand It will be late to counsel then or pray. Yet if you should forget me for a while And afterwards remember, do not grieve; For if the darkness and corruption leave A vestige of the thoughts that once I had, Better by far you should forget and smile Than that you should remember and be sad.

Funeral arrangements by
Glen Eden Funeral Home (Winnipeg)

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father and grandfather Russell.

After a long illness, Russell left us peacefully late Tuesday evening at River View Health Centre. With family by his side, they had the opportunity to embrace and say good-bye before leaving to join his father Joseph, mother-in-law Lena, father-in-law Steve, and brother-in-law Ben, who all predeceased him. We are forever grateful that we were able to spend the last few hours with him to say our good-byes in our own special ways.

Russell will be forever missed by his best friend and wife Mary of 43 years; daughter Sharon (Dale); sons Kelvin (Lorna), Mike (D'arcy); his mother Effie and seven grandchildren.

Before his illness he had a full life. He was always willing to give a hand or throw in a smart comment. Russell loved to hunt and fish, and was always looking for that beaver, or that special bluff of oak to cut. If he was not asking Mom for that brown one, so he could go to town, he was in the garden. He used to like when the grandkids came for the holidays. Mike and Tony will miss him saying, "Better leave one for seed." Russell was employed by B.F.I. for 28 years until his illness forced him to retire in 1989.

Special thanks to all the staff at Riverview Health Centre on 4 East wing.

Pallbearers will be Stanley, David and Brian Grocholski, Tony and Allen Onufreychuk and Barb Paul. Honorary pallbearer will be Alberto Castellano.

If so desired, donations may be made in Russell's memory to Heart and Stroke Foundation or to Canadian Diabetes Association.

Prayers will be held on Sunday, April 4, at 7:00 p.m., in the chapel of Glen Eden Funeral Home, 4477 Main St. Funeral service will be held on Monday, April 5, at 10:00 a.m. also at Glen Eden Funeral Home. Interment will follow in Glen Eden Memorial Gardens.
