It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved sister, sister-in-law, aunt and friend Pauline at the age of 92 years.
Pauline was born in Benton, Alberta, the fifth child of eleven children born to Wasyl and Mary Hanewich. She received her education at Lonely Trail and Suburba Schools, and thereafter worked at various jobs in the Benton-Oyen area. Pauline moved to Calgary in 1942, at the age of 27 and worked as a housekeeper. In 1944 she began working at Burns Meat Packers where she worked until her retirement.
Pauline was a caring and giving lady and she enjoyed life. She especially enjoyed spending time with her siblings and their families. She often spent her vacations back home in Benton helping her mother and father on the farm. Pauline loved music and loved to dance. She enjoyed picnics at Bowness Park, camping and puttering in her vegetable garden. Pauline vacationed in Hawaii and enjoyed trips to Las Vegas and Disneyland. Her most memorable trip was to The Holy Land. Later in life Pauline took part in many Seniors events at the Golden Age Club, and also with the Seniors of Huntington Hills. She especially enjoyed Stampede Breakfasts and the lively entertainment. Pauline very seldom missed a family gathering. She loved to cook and loved to have family and friends to her home, and never did a guest left hungry.
Pauline loved her Lord, and faithfully attended Saint Anne's Catholic Church while living in Ramsay. After moving to Huntington Hills in 1972 she attended Corpus Christi Catholic Church. Pauline is predeceased by her parents, Wasyl and Mary; brother John Hanewich and sisters Caroline Caouette, Wilma Dingwall, Pearl Wiencewicz and Catherine Sugden. She is survived by her brother and sister-in-law Elie and Zelma Hanewich of Medicine Hat; sisters Doris Lees of Edmonton; Annie Diemert, Marie Busby and Beatrice Siegel, all of Calgary, as well as many nieces and nephews and their families.
We thank you Pauline for all you gave as you shared your life with us. May you now rest in peace. We would like to thank Dr. Wayne Hoy for his compassionate care and kindness shown to Pauline over the last many years. Thanks also to the nurses in Unit 44 of the Peter Lougheed for the wonderful care given to Pauline.
