Stella Dwernychuk

With heartfelt sadness we announce the passing of Stella Dwernychuk of Coldstream on May 17 at Heron Grove at the age of 90 years. Stella was born in Poland, June 12, 1921. In 1928, she immigrated to Canada with parents Wasyla and Anna Bobryk.

Stella enjoyed her retail career in women’s fashion with Eatons and the Bay, bowling at Lincoln Lanes, and tending her rose garden. She volunteered with the Vernon Jubilee Hospital auxiliary, providing hand knitted toques.

Her son Dennis Dwernychuk, wife Maggie, and grandsons, Brandon, Michael, and Evan survive her. As well as nephews, Alan, Steven, and Michael Bobryk, and niece Terry. Stella was very appreciative of her nephew’s contribution in maintaining her residence.

Stella was predeceased by her husband Clifford Dwernychuk (Victoria), daughter Jeannie Trautman (Richmond), and brother, Mike Bobryk (Coldstream).

Appreciation is extended to Fr. A. Wasylinko, Dr. DeBeer, We Care Services, and Heron Grove.

A private family service will take place at St. Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic Cemetery.
