MILDRED ANNA ZALLUSKI (nee GYOERICK)
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our Dear Wife, Mother, Grandmother and Great-Grandmother Mildred on April 28, 2021 at the Portage District General Hospital.
Mom was born on December 7, 1935 in Cudworth, SK to John and Martha Gyoerick, the oldest child in a family of four.
In 1948 the Gyoerick’s left Cudworth to make a new home in the Belhampton district, south of Alonsa where Mom attended school.
In 1957 Mom met her forever sweetheart George and on October 31, 1959 they were married. They left Alonsa to find employment for a short time and in 1963 they purchased land west of Alonsa - this was to be there home for the next 52 years.
Dad obtained employment with the dept of highways and mom was a full time stay at home mom to a family of five.
In 1983 Mom took training and became a certified home care attendant. This was the start of a career caring for many different clients in the Alonsa area which lasted 13 years. Each and every client was special to Mom and she cared for them just as she did her own family!
Things that brought Mom much happiness was being with her family & friends, spoiling her Grandchildren and later welcoming her Great-Grandchildren, reading, playing cards, bingo and always giving motherly advice, whether we needed it or not 12
Faith was a very important part of Mom’s life. She always thanked God for all the good times and asked for support thru the difficult times.
In 2015 Mom & Dad left Alonsa to make their new home in Portage la Prairie.
Mom was predeceased by her parents John & Martha Gyoerick, infant sister Evangeline, Mother and Father In-Law, Peter & Eva Zalluski. Brother/Sister In-laws Emma Gyoerick, Frank Rusnick, Kay & Walter Piluke, Nick & Kay Zalluski, Anne & John Kuzyk, Mary & Tony Tkachyk, Mike Zalluski, John P Zalluski and Jean & Steve Sucharyna (Bill Turko).
She is survived by her loving husband of 61 years George. Her children Ray (Vi), Lucille (John), Evangeline (Ken), Myrna, Roxanne (Bill). Grandchildren Stewart (Amanda), Shane, Derrick (Heather), Justin (Claire), Terry (Kelsey), Brad and 8 Great Grandchildren. Sister Cindy, Brothers Dennis and Bob, Sister in-law Irene Zalluski, numerous nieces, nephews and friends!
In lieu of flowers, Mom’s wish would be to hug your loved ones and cherish everyday you have with them!!
REST IN PEACE DEAR MOTHER KNOWING YOU ARE IN OUR HEARTS FOREVER!
