DANELIUK, Marie (nee Zarowny)

August 15, 1922 – August 24, 2011

We are sad to announce the passing on Wednesday, August 24, 2011 of our beloved mother and grandmother, Marie Daneliuk, with her family lovingly by her side, yet rejoiced in knowing that she is with her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and reunited with her long missed beloved.

Marie was born August 15, 1922 in Whitesand, SK, the eighth of eleven children to Mike and Ann Zarowny. The family moved to Elk Point when she was seven years old where they remained until she ventured out at fifteen years of age to Derwent to help a doctor’s family for three years.

She lived in Mundare and then worked in Edmonton with the Knights of Columbus training in hospitals. She went to Vernon and Chilliwack and then was highly recommended for pediatric training in Vancouver until V-Day. Her appendix burst and she returned to work with her twin sister Paula in their café. She met the love of her life, Bill, in that café as the oil field came to Elk Point. They dated for three years and married September 5, 1948 and within a few years, started their family.

Marie was a simple woman who was a good wife and thought herself to be fortunate for what she had. She rejoiced in the birth of her children and considered herself to be blessed with all of her family. Her whole life she made a concerted effort not to hurt people. She loved being a hostess and her door was always open for family and friends. Marie was known as the aunt to always visit. She was an excellent cook and known for her hospitality and homemade bread, pies and Ukrainian recipes passed down through the generations.

Marie was a very talented woman with hobbies that included, knitting, crocheting, paper toile, stitchery, ceramics, flower arranging, painting, music, bowling, exercise, gardening as well as being a marvelous seamstress, never stopping as evidenced by the tap dancing class taken in her early 80’s. Her husband admired her and was quoted “There is not a thing that she tries that she does not succeed at.” She enjoyed travelling and the various functions that came their way from the oil business. Above all, she loved reading her bible quietly every morning.

Marie will be missed by her son Gary; daughters, Linda and Fay; and grandchildren, Lance, Shane, Troy and Mark. She is survived by her brother Bill of Elk Point; brothers-in-law, Ben (Muriel), Carl (Phyllis) and Victor; and many nieces and nephews. Marie was predeceased by her husband Bill on October 7, 2005 and siblings, Joe, Anton, Nellie, Paul, Steve, Paula, Margaret, Nick, and John.

Those wishing to pay their respects may do so at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Chapel of the Bells (2720 Centre Street North) on Monday, August 29, 2011 from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.

Funeral Services will be held at Thornhill Baptist Church (128 Tache Avenue N.W.) on Tuesday, August 30, 2011 at 1:00 p.m. Graveside Service was held at Eden Brook Memorial Gardens.

  1. Shelley Williams-Sebo :

    Dear Linda, Fay and Gary,

    I was greatly saddened to hear of the passing of your remarkable mother. It was always wonderful to be welcomed into her home.

    Her abilities in the kitchen have always been a frequent topic of conversation amongst the Sebo family.

    To this day, we still cannot figure out how she was able to prepare and provide such incredible and varied dishes for the numerous family gatherings.

    It was wonderful to be in your parents company and see their love for each other. Marie and Bill were a remarkable couple. He would tease her, and she would say ‘Oh Bill’. She was the love of your Father’s life, and he of her’s.

    She was an excellent Mother, and loved her children. She is well deserving of her place in heaven.

    May the next days, weeks, months and years help lessen your sadness, and bring to mind the memories of the happiness she created because of her love for you all.
