Hunchak, Mary

Hunchak: Mary (nee Kolpak). Peacefully Mom passed away at the age of 84 years on November 28, 2014 at the Souris Personal Care Home after a brief illness. Left to cherish her memory is her husband Edward, daughter Deborah and son-in-law Dwight. She is also survived by sisters Agnes and Dorothy (Jack), nieces and nephews. Born and raised in Winnipeg, she married Edward in 1953 and just celebrated their 61st wedding anniversary on October 17, 2014. In 2013 Mom and Dad moved to Souris, Manitoba to live the quiet friendly small town life with their daughter and son-in-law. Here, Mom resided in the Crescent Manor and met many friends while enjoying her bingo games, congregate meals, attending town activities and weekly luncheon and shopping excursions to Brandon. Regularly visiting Dad in the Souris Personal Care home, Mom came to know a lot of staff and residents and took part in many of the Home’s activities and celebrations. After a short stay in the hospital, Mom moved to the Care Home where she spent her last days among family and friends. A special thank you to Dr. Cram and the nursing staff at the Souris Hospital for the level of care Mom received while there, and a very special heartfelt thank you to the caring compassionate staff at the Personal Care Home for making Mom’s final days as peaceful as possible. Mom’s wishes for cremation have taken place and a private family service will be held at time of burial in Brookside Cemetery in Winnipeg. Mom, you will be greatly missed.

  1. Hi Debbie, it’s been such a long time. So sorry to hear about your Mom. We didn’t realize that you or your parents were living out in Souris. Rob is saying that he always liked visiting your Mom & Dad’s from the time he was little right through to when we used to take the boys there. He thought your Mom was a great cook. Our last two Christmas cards were returned saying that they had moved and we tried to find their new address but couldn’t and now we know why. We hope your Dad is doing well. Rob and I both have great memories of your Mom. Rob says to please look us up when you are in Wpg., we are on Whitetail Drive. Take care Debbie.

  2. Hi Deb:

    We are saddened to hear about your Mom’s passing. I have very fond memories of her at Hunchak family gatherings. She was a wonderful lady, with a quick wit and bright smile, who enjoyed laughter and dancing to our family’s musical efforts. Hope your Dad is doing well. Please give him and Dwight our best wishes.
