Katie Maksymyk of Betel Home in Gimli, formerly of Komarno, MB, passed away peacefully on Friday, May 3, 2019, with her family by her side, at the age of 93.

She was predeceased by her husband Mike Maksymyk. They were married for almost 65 years. She will be lovingly remembered by her three sons: Jerry (Leta) and their sons Jedd (special friend Kim and daughter Ava) and Scott (Cecilia), Sully and Cohen; Michael (special friend Val) and his children Jennifer (Ryan Luckhardt), Ayla, Marley and Zoey; Cheryl; and Jeffrey (Daij’Amore), Lincoln; and son Ken; as well as her sister Betty (Elmer), many nieces and nephews.

Mom lived on the family farm until four years ago when she moved to Teulon. She loved her yard and gardens and took great pride in keeping the yard park like.

Mom was gifted with many interests. She was very creative, and her hobbies ranged from ceramics, paper tole, knitting, crocheting and sewing. She enjoyed them all. Her children and grandchildren all have things created by her. She was an excellent cook, and everyone enjoyed her food. Her perogies were a favourite of everyone in the family and are the standard by which perogies are judged by today! She loved to volunteer with her many friends at the Komarno Club Hall.

Mom was very social and loved having people over and going out. She enjoyed outings with her sisters and nieces. She loved her grandkids and enjoyed spending time with them. She would ask how they and her little great grandchildren were doing.

Mom was also shown special care and love by her niece Tracy and husband Frank, whose phone calls and visits would always lift her spirits.

Although she would say she had a hard life - working alongside her husband Mike on the family farm, raising a family, as well as working full-time in order to help make ends meet - she did love the farm and missed it once she moved off.

Katie had a good sense of humour, she loved people and experiencing new things. She could also be stubborn, and she could be determined ... all rolled into one. She was our mother and our baba, and we will all miss her.

The family would like to thank the Arborg Hospital staff for their care of Mom while she was there. As well, we would like to offer our deepest gratitude to the staff at Betel Home in Gimli who cared for her with love, joy and treated her with dignity. As a family we can’t say enough wonderful things about you!

Funeral service will be held on Friday, May 10, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. at MacKenzie Funeral Chapel in Teulon. Interment to follow at the Pleasant Home Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Katie‘s name to Pleasant Home church cemetery with funds going toward the restoration of their heritage plaque.
