It is with sad hearts and wonderful memories that our family announces the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother, aunt and friend, Victoria Kryzanowski. She will be forever loved and remembered by daughters, Debra and Judy, sons-in-law Chris and Jack, and grandchildren, Tim (Savannah), Candice and Shaugn, great grand-daughter, Olivia., and sister Olga. Nieces, nephews and cousins who adored their “aunty” will miss her fondly.
Vickie grew up in the Viking area and farmed with her husband in the Ranfurly area until retirement in 1995 at which time they moved to an acreage near Spruce Grove. After her husband passed away, Vickie moved to Spruce Grove and started a new chapter in her life. Vickie was a master gardener, a chef extraordinaire and a do-it-your-selfer for most projects. She took care of things. First and foremost she was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and aunty. She was a special friend to people who were privileged to be a part of her life. Vickie was predeceased by her husband Edward, parents, Aneilia and Michael, and brother Maurice.
Funeral service will be held to celebrate her life on November 3, 10:00 am, at Holy Trinity Catholic Church, 200 Boundary Road, Spruce Grove.
Following the service, Vickie will be laid to rest alongside her loving husband, Edward, at the Ranfurly Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Vickie’s honour can be made to “You Can Ride 2” supporting individuals with special needs by providing access to adapted bikes. Cheques payable to “Good Will Industries” with reference to “You Can Ride 2” on the memo line.
MISSING SOMEONE IS feeling a piece of your heart gone astray. Sure, it keeps beating, and sure, you keep breathing, but there’s a gap in the rhythm of it, and in the rhythm of the everyday things around you. You seem to move a less gracefully. But you still move, and that’s the critical thing. Because missing someone doesn’t mean things grind to a halt. Instead, it means you move out of gratitude for the gift of their presence in your life. You move to keep experiencing, to keep confronting life head-on, so that your return allows you to reunite with them as more human, more alive, more real. Written by Richard Wagamese.
