Osolinsky, Nadine Olga
August 8, 1943 - October 20, 2012
It is with heavy hearts and sorrow that we announce the passing of our beautiful wife, mother, Baba, great-grandmother, sister, aunty and friend Nadine Osolinsky (Hilkewich) (Pawliuk). Mom passed away peacefully with her family by her side at RUH on Saturday October 20, 2012. Nadine is survived by her loving husband, Arnold; her children, Corinne Pawliuk (Don Spooner), Bernadine (Edward) Richard, Jeff Pawliuk, Val Wynes (Kathryn Falkner), Laurie (Dean) Waldner; Grandchildren, William Rodwin (Tina Turta), Ashley Wynes, Danielle & Dean (DJ) Waldner, Alexander & Christopher Richard; and great-grandson; Jayden Turta-Rodwin. Stepchildren, Lisa (Dale) Holmes of Medicine Hat, AB, Shawn (Allison) Osolinsky & family, two other stepdaughters ( from whom she was estranged); and 7 step grandchildren; brother-in-law, Melvin (Donna) Osolinsky; and mother-in-law, Isabelle Osolinsky. As well, her very special friend, Jean (Paul) Piche, thank you for 60 years of love, kindness and friendship. Nadine also leaves to mourn her sisters, Pauline Klassen, and Liz (Fred) Dzaidyk; and one brother, Ed Hilkewich of Edmonton, AB. Nadine was predeceased by her father, John Hilkewich in 2002, her mother, Rose Hilkewich in 2007 and brother-in-law, John Klassen in 1975. Mom worked at the Union Centre for 18 years and later at Dairy Producers, where she eventually retired from. Mom will be remembered first and foremost for her love of family. She always maintained that blood is thicker than water and she stressed the importance of being there for one another. We thank her for that. Mom also taught and demonstrated to her family the values of a solid work ethic, the importance of honesty, and the tradition of caring for others. She was a mother of five, but she was "mom" to many more. Mom, by her own admission, was a woman of simple needs. She enjoyed spending time with family at home and at the lake. She was also an avid sports fan, seldom missing ringette, hockey or softball games that her children or grandchildren were playing in. She also loved nature - whether that meant working in her yard, watching birds in the feeders, picking mushrooms in the bush, photographing a sunset, a sunrise, or a frosty Saskatchewan morning. Mom will also be remembered for her family feasts. She would frequently invite us over for a 'simple supper' which would inevitably turn into a smorgasbord because she always wanted to include everyone's favourite dishes. Cabbage rolls for Dani, borscht for Corinne -. Mom was such an excellent example for us of what unconditional love looked like. No matter what was going on in any of our lives, we could always count on mom to be there for us without judgement, without reservation. She accepted and loved us completely and for that we are fortunate and eternally grateful. Thank you for everything Mom. May God bless you and may you rest in peace. We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the wonderful staff from the Cardiac Unit (6000) at RUH. You made a very difficult time so much better for us because of your kindness, warmth, caring and professionalism. We would also like to extend a special thank you to Doctors Priciak & El-Emary for their excellent care. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the HOPE Cancer Help Centre at 129D Pinehouse Drive, Saskatoon, SK S7K 5W1.
