Mary Fedorovich


With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Mary in the early hours of March 6, 2015. At 95 years of age, Mary still had a mischievous sense of humour and a curiosity about life around her. Mary enjoyed having visitors, friends and family to spice up her days.

She was born on the farm in Barich, Alberta on February 14, 1920 to Thomas Yasinski and Anna (Chersick) Yasinski. Mary had two children, both of whom have predeceased her: Lawrence (Larry) Polachuk (May 11, 2014) and Billy Joe Polachuk (8 days old). She is survived by her grandson Kevin Polachuk (Nicole), sisters Sophie (Peter) Bottoms, Olga (Ray) Hodge, Jenny (George) Thibault, daughterin-law Hope Polachuk, nephew Danny (Janet) Fedorovich, stepson Martin Fedorovich, numerous nieces and nephews. Many of Mary’s family have also passed before her: brothers Tom, Victor, Nick (Ester), Peter, Mike, John (Joyce), and sisters Rosie, Lillie, Josie (Howard) Gould, daughter-in-law Sue Polachuk and beloved granddaughter Leanne Polachuk.

Mary was married to Zanon Fedorovich. When visiting and caring for Zan while he was living at the Northwood Care Centre, Mary became acquainted with the ladies that volunteered at the Tuck Shop. Mary had received a plaque thanking her for 7000 hours of volunteer service. Mary worked a variety of jobs in her life, including cookhouse helper, waitress, chambermaid and laundress. Eventually, Mary owned and operated a laundromat in Mercoal, Alberta until the town closed and then moved to Edmonton, Alberta where she worked as a uniform factory seamstress until retirement. Wherever she worked, Mary was appreciated for her willingness to work hard and do the job right. She was happiest when she was busy. Whether in the garden, kitchen or at work, she always had a smile on her face.

Memorial Donations may be made to: The Spruce Grove Golden Age Club, 301 Jespersen Ave, Spruce Grove, Alberta T7X 2J1.

Funeral service will be held on Saturday March 14, 2015 at 10:00 a.m. at Serenity North Central Chapel, 10129 Princess Elizabeth Avenue, Edmonton.

My name is Zenaida Banton and I’m a Nursing Attendant at the Good Samaritan Stony Plain. I cared for Mary and found her a kind, loving and very compassionate person. Mary called me Angie for the word “Angel” because whenever she needs a cup of tea I’m there to help her. God bless her for now she is my Angel.
