My deepest condolences to the entire Javorsky family. It is sad to hear another longtime Onoway area resident passing away. May God comfort you at this time.

My Auntie Erma. Yes, I have missed her for some time now, but, when she’s left this life, it really sinks in. As a child, I remember her as being some what formidable, but as years passed, she became someone you could respect and admire and enjoy.
I have many fond memories of visits with her, where I learned to appreciate her amazing sense of humor and value just how smart she was. Below that exterior was a very sweet and tender heart.
I got such a kick out of her designing her new home in Stony Plain, where she tried to have a home large enough to meet their needs, but had to have minimal square footage. Genius that she was, she figured it out.
My favorite lesson was when I said something that didn’t quite gel with her sensibilities. She said ‘Oh, don’t be like that!’ I still use that line.
She and Uncle Otto have left a great legacy, including my dear cousins, and their children, and their children.

Auntie Erma had a good sense of humor and she was also a good cook. I have memories of good visits with Uncle Otto and Auntie Erma and cousins. It seemed that her favorite saying was That Girl and she would point to one of us girls. Auntie Erma also play the mouth organ for us when we went to visit her. My sympathy goes to my cousins and their families.
