Lena Grasky (Kazmerik)
Lena passed away peacefully at St. Boniface Hospital, Winnipeg, on October 9th at the age of 95. Lena was born in R.M. of Rosedale, MB, the daughter of Peter and Annie Kazmerik. She was the 6th sibling in a line of 10 children. Lena’s family farmed near Mountain Road, MB until the age of 9 when they moved to Neepawa.
As a young woman Lena was employed at the T. Eaton Company in Winnipeg. She married Stanley Grasky on June 8, 1949 and they resided in Winnipeg. Lena was a devoted daughter, loving sister, and a deeply loved and respected mother and wife. She was very generous, putting the needs of her family first. Home cooking and baking were her specialties. We all enjoyed the fruits of her labour.
Lena will be lovingly remembered by her son, Don, sisters Alice Kozak and Paulina (Tony) Antoniuk, brother John Kazmerik, sister-in-law Kathleen Kazmerik, and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents, Peter (1960) and Annie (1991), her husband Stanley (2011), siblings; Kay Kozak (1989), Mike Kazmerik (1999), Bill Kazmerik (2001), Mary Kozak (2005), Stella Kelunick (2006), and Nick Kazmerik (2013).
Don would like to thank the caregivers and staff at Holy Family Nursing Home in Winnipeg, where his mother resided since 2014.
