Katarzyna (Kay) Nowacki

With sadness we announce the passing of Katarzyna (Kay) Nowacki in her 90th year on Dec 19, 2012.

Mom was born on August 18, 1923 in Howilowie Wielkim, Ukraine and immigrated to Canada with her husband, Andrzej in November 1949 where they landed in Montreal and settled in Lavington, BC in March of 1950. In 1957, they settled in Notch Hill, BC on the farm where Dad passed away on May 26, 1976 and Mom remained until her recent passing.

Mom farmed the property until 1990 and then participated with her daughter Bev and son-in-law Phil in the ongoing day to day activities of the farm.

Over her 55 years on the farm, Mom was well liked by all her neighbours and friends. Mom in turn, appreciated their kindness and generosity through the years.

Mom is survived by her daughter Bev (Phil) of Notch Hill, BC; son Paul of Duncan, BC and son Hank (Gail) of Blind Bay, BC as well as grandsons Robert, Tristan, David and Chad and granddaughters Sabrina and Miranda.

The family would like to offer a special thanks to Dr. Currie and all the caring staff at the Shuswap Lake General Hospital for their kindness and caring to Mom during her illness.

We would also like to thank all our neighbours and friends that attended Mom’s service at St Josephs Catholic Church in Salmon Arm on Dec 28, 2012.

If friends desire, donations to the Shuswap Lake General Hospital Foundation would be most welcome.
