It is with heartbreak the family of Theresa Bodnarchuk announces her passing on Sunday, July 11, 2021 at Victoria Hospital in Prince Albert, SK at the age of 65.
Theresa was born on October 21, 1955 at the Hafford Hospital, Hafford, SK to Joan and Steve Bodnarchuk. Theresa, the oldest of six siblings, went through challenges in her life and was strong to overcome many of them. Theresa started life on the family farm. At the age of 1 ½ she became ill with spinal meningitis, spending two years at the Saskatoon Sanatorium. During her second year of school in Hafford, Theresa left to attend John Dolan School in Saskatoon. Theresa’s life took her to North Battleford where she worked at the Sheltered Workshop for many years. In 2010 she moved to Haven House Group Home in Prince Albert and worked at Kin Enterprises/SAGE.
Theresa was a caring, compassionate, beautiful, kindhearted soul with a little mischievousness to her. She always made a point of saying hello to anyone and everyone – even strangers. Her smile and laugh would light up a room. She loved to joke with people.
Some of her favourite things to do were going out for coffee, going to the movies, singing, cooking, doing crafts, road trips, camping at Candle Lake, watching NHL and CFL games, shopping, and going to the exhibition.
She was full of love and always showed it by telling anyone she was with how much she loved them. Theresa’s famous words were “Hey, Come Here You” and would want to give you a great big hug and kiss and end with “I Love You.”
Theresa will be lovingly remembered by her mother, Joan; sister, Rosalie; brother, Chris; niece, Nicole Kuzyk (Brad); nephews, Nathan and Riley; sister-in-law, Melinda Dubyk; roommate, Chris Henry; and all the staff at Haven House Group Home. Theresa was predeceased by her father, Steve; brothers, Garry, Mervin and Michael; sisters-in-law, Charlene (wife of Michael) and RoseMarie Shewchuk (partner to Garry). A graveside service and celebration of life will take place at Holy Ghost Cemetery (Albertown, SK) at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday July 17, 2021. Following the service, please join the family for fellowship and lunch at the Hafford Senior Center.
