Jan. 24, 1916 to Jan. 27, 2011
With sorrow and fond memories the children and surviving brothers and sisters wish to announce the passing of Stan Hubensky. After a year and a half in eldercare Stan died suddenly at Parkview Place in Enderby on Jan. 27th, 2011.
Stan was born in 1916 near Rossburn, Manitoba. He was the second born of 10 children to Mike and Mary Hubensky, young immigrants from the western Ukraine who homesteaded north of the Riding Mountains. Stan apprenticed as a blacksmith and trained in welding. In 1940 Stan moved to B.C. to work as a blacksmith at Aleza Lake and other logging camps outside Pr. George. From 1945 to 1950 Stan was an owner/partner in Central Sawmill at Ferndale. He met and married (1952) Mary Teichroeb. They moved to the Quesnel area and then a farm at Mara where they grew a small dairy and four children. As well as farming Stan worked as a millwright at NWI, Arrowhead, Malakwa, Enderby/Riverside and other sawmills in the Shuswap.
Stan and Mary enjoyed a long and active retirement at Grindrod. Mary passed away in 2004. They are both missed and remembered by many friends and relatives. Before they are rejoined for eternity we wish to invite neighbours, friends, and relatives of Stan and Mary to a memorial service and luncheon, the time and location will be announced in June.
If so desired, contributions in memory of Stan may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of B.C., Box 1141, Salmon Arm, BC, V1E 4P3.
