Hrabarchuk, Florence Muriel

Hrabarchuk — Florence

Beloved wife of Matt Hrabarchuk, passed away peacefully on August 9th, 2016 at the Souris Health Centre, Souris, Manitoba at the age of 82 years, with her family by her side.  Florence was born on 7 March 1934 in Binscarth, Manitoba.  Florence was predeceased by her son Ron; sisters Kay, Evelyn and Shirley; Brothers Butch and Orville.  Florence is survived by her devoted husband of 52 years, Matt; Sons Bob (Jacquie) from Maricopa, Arizona and Rick (Marilyn) from Brandon, Manitoba, as well as three grandchildren, five brothers and numerous nieces and nephews.  Cremation has taken place.  A private funeral will be held at a later date.  Florence and Matt left Brandon, Manitoba for Lynn Lake in 1970 for what was to be a 2 year posting. They ended up staying for 12 and 1/2 years.  After that they arrived in Souris in October 1982.  They made many long lasting friends in both communities.  Following retirement, Florence and Matt spent their winters in south Texas for numerous years, again adding to their collection of good friends.  A celebration of Florence and Matt’s 50th wedding anniversary took place in 2013 at the Souris & Glenwood Golf Club.  Florence spent many days and nights at the Souris Hospital without complaint.   The family would like to thank the doctors and the Souris hospital nursing staff for their kind and compassionate care of Florence.  Florence was a remarkable woman and devoted wife; she had a wonderful spirit and a kind and loving heart.  Florence will be dearly missed by all that knew her.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a charity of one’s choice.

  1. Matt Bob & Rick,
    I was very sad to hear about the passing of Auntie Florence.
    My deepest condolences to you and the family.
    I am very grateful I had a visit with her in the hospital but wish I made it back for another one.

  2. I will miss my beautiful sister. She was the kindest and most gentle person i know. She never had a bad word to say about anybody. She was a great wife to Matt and Matt was a perfect match for her.
    They were perfect for each other. They loved and respected each other.
    She was also a wonderful and loving mother to her children.

    Evelyn and i extend our deepest sympathies to Matt, Bob and Rick.

  3. Hello Matt & family
    I am sorry to hear of the loss of your wife/mother. My sincerest condolences to you all. The love you had along with her memories will live on forever.

  4. Florence (Auntie Flo to my daughters) was one of the most beautiful friends a person could have. She had a soft, gentle comforting aura and a wonderful sense of humour. From the time my girls were little they loved visiting with Auntie Flo and Uncle Matt. Beginning in Lynn Lake, and in the yearsfollowing, we were privileged and blessed to count you and Flo as special friends and aunt and uncle to our children. You will be in our hearts with loving memories forever, dearest Flo. Much love and sympathies to Matt and the rest of the family.

  5. Dear Uncle Matt, my heart holds a special place for you and Auntie Flo. You are like family and I will always cherish the memories from our Lynn Lake years. There was never a year that went by that we did not speak on the phone or exchange letters and I am so grateful to have spent time with you both in Souris this past Spring. With love and deepest sympathies, I hold you in my heart at this most difficult of times. May the incredible love you shared together carry you forward.
