BOMOK, Olga (Kosmynka)
1927 – 2013
Olga Bomok (Kosmynka) of Saskatoon, formerly of Speers, SK passed away on Tuesday, December 17, 2013, surrounded by the love of her family. Olga was born August 17, 1927 on the family farm near Cudworth, SK. to Metro and Helen (Zaleschuk) Kosmynka, the second of nine children. She attended Carpathian School, a one room country school two miles from her home. We grew up hearing many stories of Mom and her siblings walking to school in the summer and riding in a horse-drawn caboose in the winter. When she finished school she stayed at home to help her mother and later she worked at the Cudworth Hotel. In the spring of 1947 Olga met her soul mate Leon Bomok. They were married on October 19, 1947 and began their farm life at Speers, SK. It was a busy life, but a happy life. Looking after her household she made time to serve on the local Home and School Association as well as being active in the church. She was a member of the Ukrainian Catholic Women's League of Canada for 61 years. In 1971 Leon and Olga moved to Saskatoon. Olga was employed at St. Ann's Home and later Extendicare until her retirement in 1989. A highlight of Mom and Dad's retirement was several winter vacations to Hawaii. Mom was a meticulous housekeeper and fantastic cook, always ready to host her family and friends. Gardening was front and center in the summer. The Bomoks always had an abundance of record sized produce. Dill pickles were Mom's specialty. She took pride in her beautiful flowers, especially her "Europeana" roses. Mom loved her children and grandchildren. She thrived on their visits and later always looked forward to them coming with the great grandchildren. Playing Kaiser was a favourite pastime with family and friends. Mom enjoyed bowling, crocheting and knitting. She loved to watch curling, Toronto Blue Jays baseball and the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Mom had a sweet tooth. Growing up during the Great Depression and then having sugar rationed during World War II, she always craved sweets. Olga is predeceased by her husband Leon; two infant sons; her parents; brothers Michael (Mary), Orest, Peter (June); brothers-in-law William Chohaniuk and William Michayluk; and all of Leon's siblings and their spouses. She will be forever cherished and missed by her children Dorothy (Father Yurij) Lazurko, Leon (Darlene) Bomok, Iris (Jim) Vassie, Marion (William) Porter, Carrie Bomok and Brian (fiancée Machelle Poole) Bomok. Grandchildren Gregory Lazurko, Mark (Kathleen) Lazurko, Christina (Mathew) Pulickal, Jesse and Luke Vassie, Marjorie (Paul) Smith, Lesley and Billy Porter, Ryan and Dustin Bomok. Great grandchildren Dru Rogers, Matthew, Kara, Adam and Andrew Lazurko, Emily Smith and Maximus Pulickal. Olga is survived by her brother Walter (Dianne) Kosmynka, sisters Pauline (Julius) Frank, Delores (Edward) Kisil, Rose Chohaniuk, Elsie Michayluk and sisters-in-law Muriel Kosmynka and Jan Kosmynka as well as nieces and nephews in both the Kosmynka and Bomok families, and her dear friend Helen Adams. Prayer Service will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, December 19, 2013 at Park Funeral Chapel, 311 Third Avenue North, Saskatoon. Divine Liturgy will be celebrated at Sts. Peter and Paul Ukrainian Catholic Church, 10th Street and Munroe Avenue, Saskatoon at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, December 20, 2013 with Rev. Fr. Yurij Lazurko and Rev. Fr. Dmytro Dnistrian, CSSR officiating. Interment will take place at Hillcrest Memorial Gardens Cemetery. The family thank Home Care, the Palliative Care Team and all the staff on the 7th floor, St. Paul's Hospital for the compassionate and loving care they gave our mother in her final weeks and to the clergy, relatives, neighbours and friends who visited and called. In lieu of flowers memorial donations can be made to a charity of one's choice. To send online condolences, visit www.parkfuneral.ca "Obituaries and Tributes". Arrangements entrusted to Greg Lalach, Park Funeral Chapel, 306.244.2103.
