On March 6, 2020 Lovey Wachniak passed away peacefully at age of 87 after a long illness.
Lovey is survived by her son Terry, daughter Victoria and Rick Preston; Jule Henderson, grandchildren: Jared (Apryl), Audrey (Stuart), Steve; great grandchildren Calvin, Brayden, Mikenna and Jordan. She also leaves behind sister Doreen, brother Michael (Janet) as well as many other family and friends. Lovey was predeceased by her husband, Walter on Dec 19, 2012.
Deep thank-you goes out to Jo-Ann Jensen for the tireless and loving care she provided to Lovey and her family in the last months. Jo was a real gift in helping Lovey live with the challenges that come with dementia. May God bless you.
Born in Poplarfield, MB. on December 11, 1932. She was one of ten children born to Michael and Victoria Lapka. She married Walter Wachniak June 5, 1954.
For years Lovey worked as manager for Salisbury House. After retiring, she served some of Winnipeg’s finest hotdogs at the Wachniak Auction house. Lovey was there to greet her hungry and eager customers with her smile and delicious wares.
Lovey was an honest, generous, fun-loving woman. She had an amazing sense of humor that made us laugh until the end. Lovey and Wally’s door was always open to everyone with great food and plenty of drink ready to go around. She will be missed more than words can express.
The family would like to thank all of Lovey’s caregivers at Poseidon Care Centre, her homecare workers and medical staff.
Funeral services will be held at 10 am Friday, March 13, 2020 at MacKenzie Funeral Chapel, 433 Main St. Stonewall, MB. Interment to follow at Poplarfield Community Cemetery, Poplarfield, MB. Thank you Father Maximiuk for presiding.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Lovey’s memory to The Holy Trinity Ukrainian Orthodox Church, Poplarfield, MB. R0C 2N0

Lovey was the best mother-in-law a guy could have asked for. She was always welcoming and encouraging..... a wonderful person all around. We loved her a lot. I also loved being her partner when we played cards, since we consistently beat Vicky and Wally at our favourite games. OK, maybe not consistently, but at least 50.1% of the time.
