Obituary for Virginia Nancy Sawka

Print
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother and grandmother Virginia, on December 8, 2018 at the age of 76.
She was predeceased by her husband Nicholas in 1982. She leaves to cherish her memory five daughters, Cindy, Cathy (Victor), Chrissy (Keith), Wendy and Maggie (Keith) and her twin boys, Ivan (Michelle) and Kenny (Eileen). Also mourning her loss are 26 grandchildren, 20 great grandchildren with two on the way and one great great grandchild.
Mom was born on January 4, 1942 to Joe and Florence Swampy. Her early years were spent with her parents and seven siblings. At the age of 6 she was sent to a residential school for six years. As a young woman she met her future husband and moved to Winnipeg, where she lived, raising her seven children until her passing.
In her later years she had mobility problems due to arthritis and wasn’t able to get out as much as she wanted to. But she did love having everyone visit her and could talk for hours. She loved plants and flowers and her home was always filled with her plants which she propagated and always shared with her children. Not often did you visit her without leaving with one or two of her plants. And even though sometimes the visits weren’t as often as she or we would have liked, she understood that jobs and children sometimes kept us away too long, but she never complained.
And we were all comforted just knowing she was there for us. We will all miss her so very much and cherish the time we had with her. We love you mom and will always remember your loving smile.
The family would like to send a heartfelt thank you to the staff on 4B at St. Boniface Hospital for their loving care and compassion during her time there.
Cremation has taken place and a private service was held for the family.
In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to the St. Boniface Hospital Foundation, C1026-409 Taché Ave, Winnipeg, MB, R2H 2A6
