Anna Bohun passed away peacefully at Hafford Special Care Home at the age of 91. She is dearly loved and remembered by her children Florence Lambert and Violet (Ken) Schneider; grandchildren Les Lambert, Kirby Lambert (Karla), Cora (Chris) Putz and Tera (Stephen) Maguire; great-grandchildren Dylan Lambert, Augustus Lambert, Caitlyn and Carson Putz, and Mason and Jimmy Maguire. She was predeceased by her husband Paul Bohun; parents Steve Nemish and Caroline (nee Baliski); son-in-law Carl Lambert; great-granddaughter Etta Lambert; brothers Peter (Elsie), Mike (Jane) and John (Pauline); parents-in-law John Bohun and Maria (nee Mazun); in-laws Joe (Mary) Bohun, Bill (Ann) Bohun, Katie (Albert) McCullough, Ann (Henry) Conan, Mike Bohun, Eva (Hugh) McCullough and Stella (Walter) Bobrownik. She was born on January 1, 1929 on a family farm near Krydor, SK and was the second youngest in the Nemish family with three brothers. Ann attended Sich School and enjoyed playing baseball. She had many childhood memories working on the farm and playing too, as there were always lots of kids around. Ann met Paul Bohun at a dance in Sich Hall, and they married on October 8, 1944. Together they had two daughters, Florence and Violet. Ann loved living on the farm: she had a huge garden, enjoyed canning, and loved their many animals. Her cellar was stocked with canned raspberries, canned crab apples, canned chicken and many jars of pickles. When they weren’t working the land or doing chores, Ann and Paul could often be found at a dance or playing cards with the neighbours. They retired to Hafford, SK in 1991. After retirement, Ann continued her love of gardening, as well as bingo, cards and many visits to the local cafes. She had great friends and neighbours and was proud to call Hafford home. Ann was an incredible cook. Whenever family would visit (no matter day or night!), the table would be filled with many tasty dishes, which she encouraged everyone to sample. After Paul passed away, Ann went on several trips with family. These travels took her to different landscapes, where she would comment on the land and crops. She drove through the mountains in BC, getting to visit family, went to live shows in North Dakota, toured casinos, and made many road trips to Wynyard, Yorkton, Regina, Saskatoon and Calgary. Ann who affectionately became known to most as ‘Baba’, had a love for people. She often wanted every get together and family visit to last longer. She leaves a legacy behind in her children and grandchildren of an amazing work ethic and zest for life. In her final years, Ann lived at the Hafford Special Care Home, where she enjoyed the friendly staff and wonderful programming including road trips, crafts, and activities. Ann will be remembered for her sense of humour, witty remarks, love in the kitchen, ‘playing to win’, and that twinkle in her eye. She will be missed dearly. The Divine Liturgy will be celebrated at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, February 13, 2020 at the Ukrainian Catholic Church of the Holy Eucharist in Hafford, SK. The Interment will follow at the Holy Eucharist Parish Cemetery. Memorial donations may be made to Hafford Special Care Centre (Box 130, Hafford, SK S0J 1A0).
