Regina Mary (Bonokoski) Roozendaal
September 6, 1932 – November 19, 2012
Death is God’s way of saying “your table is ready my good and faithful servant”. Regina passed away peacefully on November 29 with family members by her side. In spite of serious lung and liver problems, she approached each day with a smile and found joy in dedicating herself to her family, friends and the church. She ultimately succumbed to cancer following a brief hospital stay. Regina was born in Torquay, Saskatchewan, the 13th of 15 children, and will be remembered by all who knew her for her laughter, warm smile and wonderful pies. She is especially missed by her four children: Pattie Roozendaal, Mary-Lou (Don) Huculak, Sam (Patti) Roozendaal, Maureen (Dave) Drake; six grandchildren: Alyssa, Richie, Stephanie, Siemon, Anna and Marc; four surviving sisters and brother in Saskatchewan; as well as many nieces and nephews in the Bonokoski family. A Prayer Service will be held on Friday, November 23 at 7:00 p.m. and a Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Saturday, November 24 at 2:00 p.m., both at Immaculate Conception Church, 839 Sutherland Ave., Kelowna, BC. As an expression of sympathy, memorial donations may be made to The Seton House of Prayer, 5819 Chute Lake Road, Kelowna, BC, V1W 4L5.
