It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Eva Boyechko (nee Sedor) on Thursday, May 20, 2021 at the age of 85 years. She was in St. Paul’s Personal Care in Dauphin battling with ongoing persistent health problems. She passed with family by her side.
Eva was born on September 12, 1935 in Winnipegosis to parents, Paul and Madeliene (nee Solomon) Sedor. She was affectionately referred to as Edonia by her family and was the second oldest with two sisters and five brothers.
She started school in Meadowlands until the age of ten. The family moved to Oak Brae and she continued her schooling at North Lake until grade eight. Attending school involved walking several miles each day in all kinds of weather.
On May 23, 1953 she got married at seventeen years of age. Eva and Vincent lived a farm life and worked hard keeping up with the chores in the changing seasons. They raised three sons and a daughter. In 1981 the family farm was sold and they moved to a smaller farm near Dauphin.
Eva and Vincent were married 64 years when on the anniversary day, May 23, 2017, Vincent predeceased her. She is now survived by children, Albin, Archie, Lillian (John) and Barry (Bernice), five grandchildren and five great grandchildren.
She is predeceased by her sister, Madeleine (Walter) Rodzunski and brothers, John and Adam.
She also leaves to mourn sister, Phyllis (Ron) Marchenski and brothers, Willie (Marusia), Pete (Marlene), Donnie (Janice) and sisters in law, Marie and Evelyn, also many nieces, nephews, cousins, relatives and friends.
Eva and Vincent farmed in the Oak Brae and Weiden area for 25 years. Then they farmed for about 40 more years near Dauphin. They lived the quiet country life and enjoyed mushroom and berry picking. Eva always grew a big garden and lots of flowers. Eva always especially loved the company of younger people. Like all of us- she did not like getting old. She did not like to hang with the older crowd.
Starting in the 1980’s with the birth of her grandkids, our mom took on the role of Baba - one that she cherished and lived up to everyday. She loved her grandkids more than anything and would do anything for them.
Eva enjoyed trips to the coffee shops and local food spots to visit with friends. Some bigger travel adventures took her to Churchill, Edmonton, British Columbia, Graceland in Memphis, Flin Flon, Seattle, Florida and Badlands in South Dakota. Mom was a beautiful person and loved her family. She will be dearly missed by all her family and friends and never forgotten. Her memory will be treasured with lots of love.
