It is with great sadness that the family of Wendy Sokolan announce her passing at the Winnipeg Health Science Centre on June 25, 2018 at the age of 50 years. Wendy was born on February 16, 1968 in Swan River, Manitoba to Isabell and Edward Skulmoski.
Wendy was raised in Pine River, Manitoba and moved to Dauphin shortly after she graduated from Ethelbert Collegiate in 1986.
Wendy Married Rob in 1992, and together they were raising two sons, Nolan and Carson. Wendy loved her boys unconditionally and they were her sun, moon and stars.
Wendy was a hard worker and always on the go, seen walking or cycling. One of her favorite activities was getting wood for the winter. She enjoyed hauling, splitting and stacking the wood for her family, which keeps them warm through the winter. Wendy volunteered her time for many organizations, minor hockey being one of favorites, as she was kept very busy with the boys supporting them and their love for hockey which started at a very young age.
Wendy was a loving wife, mother, sister, sister-in-law, aunt and friend to all who knew her.
Wendy is survived by her loving husband, Rob; sons Nolan (Emma) and Carson, sisters Ann (Norm), Beverly, Connie, Shirley (Mel); brother Lyle (Lisa) and many nieces and nephews from both sides of the family. Wendy was predeceased by her parents, Edward and Isabell Skulmoski; brothers Gus and Clayton.
If friends so desire, donations in memory of Wendy may be made to the Manitoba Cancer Society.
