It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Stefania “Bobi” Lachowicz (Mansfeld), at the age of 85 years on July 14, 2010 at Shuswap Lake General Hospital, Salmon Arm, BC. Stefania was born on October 17, 1924 in Grudziadz, Poland and moved to Montreal, Canada after WW II.
Predeceased by her husband Karol, she is survived by her daughter and best friend Christina, son-in-law Abbas, and grandchildren Jasmine and Adel.
Stefania gave her love unconditionally to everyone and always treated people like family. Her generosity and kindness towards others will always have them remember her fondly and with love. When we think of true heroes, we will always think of Stefania.
We are forever grateful to the Interior Health medical community, Shuswap Lake General Hospital staff and Dr. Bratty for all their kindness and support.
Funeral service will be held on Wednesday, July 21, 2010 at Fischer’s Funeral Services at 10:00 a.m. with Pastor Erik Bjorgan officiating. To honour Stefania, in lieu of flowers, donations to The Canadian Cancer Society or The Arthritis Society would be greatly appreciated by the family.
