KOROLUK, Patricia Anne (nee Makar)

December 15, 1938 – Drumheller, AB

October 17, 2013 – Calgary, AB


Patricia Anne Koroluk passed away peacefully on October 17, 2013 in Calgary with her loved family at her side at the age of 74 years.

Patricia was born December 15, 1938 in Drumheller and moved to Edmonton in 1942. She was always active in music and the arts. With the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra she played the violin for 13 years, earning the position of First Violin. After marrying her husband Alexander in 1968, they settled in Calgary to raise their family. In 1978, Patricia, Al and their daughters moved to Medan, Indonesia for 3.5 years due to Al’s job in the oil Industry.  Upon returning to Calgary, Pat was an active parent, welcoming the friends of the kids into their home all of the time.  Once the girls grew up, Patricia’s enjoyment came from painting and her music.  She eventually formed a successful string quartet that stayed together for many years.

Patricia is survived by her loving husband of 45 years, Alexander; daughters, Nicole (Lance) Yanke of Calgary, Jodi Koroluk of Calgary; sister-in-law Jean Makar of Lethbridge; two grandchildren Spencer Yanke and Taylor Yanke, both of Calgary and numerous nieces and nephews.

Patricia was predeceased by her parents John Makar in 1999 and Anna Makar in 2011; two brothers Robert in 2003 and Donald in 2011; sister-in-law Emily in 2007.

We love you Mom.  Your big heart and sense of humour will be greatly missed by all those who had the opportunity to know you.

  1. Ken and Marcia Jewett :

    Alex and family: Ken and I were saddened to hear of Pat’s passing recently. She was always such a bright light for my parents when they lived along Elbow Drive, and always included my mother (parents) in family dinners. That was very much appreciated by all of us. One moment I recall many years ago, was when Pat showed me her paintings. She was extremely talented and had some very nice work in her home. Her memory, art and music will be treasured by all those who knew her. With sincere condolences, Marcia and Ken Jewett and family.

    Dear Al and girls,
    It has been quite distressing to see Pat’s health deteriorate over the past few years. There has to be some joy and relief in her now being free from these struggles. During the many years we have known your family, she was more than kind to all of us. May the memories you cherish provide comfort in the days and weeks to come.
    Kind regards.
    The Schows.
