It is with heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of our Mom, Grannie, Great Grannie, Sister, Aunt and friend on February 12, 2013. Mom was born February 11, 1929 on the family farm near Kenaston to Roza (Milic) and Nicolas Zdunich. She was the second youngest of a family of 12. On June 30, 1947 Mom married Elmer (Tom) Libke. They farmed west of Hanley until 1967 when we moved to town. In 1977, Mom went to Prince George, BC where she worked with her sister Rose for two years. She then went to Northern Saskatchewan for 15 years where she worked at Dawn Lake and Cluff Lake first as a cook and then as a camp attendant. Mom retired in 1994 in Hanley living in her own home until the spring of 2011 when she moved into the Senior units in Hanley. Mom enjoyed reading, gardening, baking, crocheting but most of all visiting with family and friends. She never missed a chance to attend her grandchildren's events.
