With mournful hearts the family of Anne Romaniuk announce her sudden passing in Winnipeg on Sunday, June 7, 2020.
Anne was born Sunday, July 23, 1939 in Dauphin, Manitoba daughter of John Sametz and Mary (Merko) Sametz.
Anne spent many years as a clerk at the Stylerite Department Store and then 15 years as a Dietary Aid and Cook at St. Paul’s Personal Care Home. She enjoyed working with people and loved to cook and share her culinary talents and skills with others.
She could always be found working on a project, either sewing, embroidering, crocheting, gardening or exploring new recipes. She was a skilled cook and baker and was happy to bake traditional Ukrainian wedding breads for friends and family. Her sense of humour and joyful approach was always evident and shone through in all that she did.
Anne is survived by her son, Greg and wife Colleen of Strathmore, Alberta and her granddaughter Leah and husband Brian and great granddaughter Brinley of Okotoks, Alberta and her grandson Adam and fiancé Kayla of Calgary, Alberta, and her son Ken of Winnipeg. Her sister and brother in-law, Olecia and Stan Smilski of Winnipeg and her niece Laura of Winnipeg, her nephew Michael and wife Kerri and their sons, Jack and Sam of Cochrane Alberta and her niece Christine of Winnipeg and her nephew Darryl and wife Lindsay and their sons Evan and Noah of Dauphin.
Anne was a devoted Mother and proud Baba to her grandchildren and her nieces and nephews. Family and friends were important to her and she loved family gatherings when she could cook and host everyone around her table. Her freezers were always full and she often sent people back home with coolers full of baking, perogies, holubsti or her famous Mexican Perishky.
A Panahyda Service was celebrated by Father John Sianchuk in the Blessed Velychkovsky Shrine on Thursday, June 11, 2020 in Winnipeg. When the Pandemic restrictions are lifted and it is safe to do so a Celebration of Life will be planned in Dauphin for when all family and friends can attend.
If friends so desire, donations in memory of Anne Romaniuk may be made to the Preservation Committee of the Historic Church of the Resurrection
