STEFANIW, Nettie Lillian - Peacefully on March 30, 2010 at the age of 77. Nettie was predeceased by her beloved husband Raymond in 1989. She was the devoted mother of Sonya (Rob Palmer), Terri, Larissa and Greg (Marilotte Bloemen) and wonderful grandmother to Courtney, Ali, Charlie and Christian. Predeceased by her cherished brother Jim Chwartacky (2002). Loving sister-in-law of Irene Chwartacky and aunt to Steven and Andrew.
