On Saturday September 1, 2012, Bogda Iwaniczko heard her God and Creator whisper into her ear “well done, my good and faithful servant; my wish for you now is to rest” and at 9:30 AM, surrounded by her family and their love, she broke the surly bonds of this earthly life. Boguslawa Danuta Skroban was born on February 21, 1953 in Adampol Poland, near the town of Lublin approximately 80km from the border with the Ukraine. She was born to Franek and Zofia Skroban, and was the first of three children. She is survived by her mother Zofia (Swidnik, Poland) her brother Piotr and his wife Sabine (Heidelberg, Germany), a sister Regina (Warsaw, Poland), her daughter Kasia Iwaniczko MacLeod and Son-in-law David, daughter Ania Iwaniczko, Step-grandson Andrew MacLeod and wife Meredith, Mother-in-law Stefania Evans, several nephews, nieces, and countless friends. Bogda was preceded in death by her infant daughter Magdalena in 1977, and by her husband Eugene Iwaniczko in May 2011. She was employed locally by Storagetek for over 20 years. Bogda waged a nearly 5-year battle with Ovarian Cancer with a grace that was profoundly inspiring to everyone she touched. She lived by the words “Other things may change us, but we start and end with family!” A memorial service will be held to celebrate Bogda's life on Sunday September 9, 2012 at 10:00AM at the Darrell Howe Mortuary in Lafayette (1701 W S Boulder Road, Lafayette, CO 80026). Those who attend the service are asked to wear bright colors as a remembrance of the brightness with which Bogda lived her life. To learn more about Bogda's life, and the memorial service, please visit darellhowemortuary.com. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that donations be made in Bogda's name to the “AMC Cancer Fund - Cocktails For The Cure” (by mail: Attention Nancy Stewart, 3401 Quebec Street Suite 3200, Denver CO 80207, or online: www.amc.org or 303.239.3335), an annual event supporting research into the treatment and eradication of women's cancers at the University of Colorado Anschutz Cancer Center.
