It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Olga Wilhelmina Stefanik (nee Knuth) on May 11, 2018, at the age of 92; lovingly known as Nani. She is survived by her children Lori (Robert) and Tony (Jaye), her grandchildren Wesley (Erin), Bradley, Kirsten and Taylor. She also leaves behind her niece Nancy and special granddaughters Stephanie (baby Dixon) and Sarah. Olga was predeceased by sister Laura and brother Freddy and her loving husband Steve. Prayers will be offered on May 24, 2018, at St. Francis de Sales Parish at 6 p.m., 6610 Balmoral Street, Burnaby. Phone number 604-434-1328. Funeral Mass will be celebrated May 25, 2018 at 11:30 a.m., at St. Francis de Sales Parish. All are welcome to attend a luncheon after the service which will be provided by the C.W.L. Olga was born in St. Boswells, Saskatchewan, and grew up in Hannah, Alberta. She met the love of her life, Steve, in Calgary. The couple were married on August 12, 1950, and lived in Portage la Prairie, Metz-France, Moose Jaw, Calgary, Vancouver, and finally Burnaby. Olga worked at the Vancouver School Board until she retired. After her retirement she was very involved in the Church community at St. Francis de Sales. Olga was a proud member of the Catholic Woman's League. Also, Olga was very active in the lives of her grandchildren. She would often be seen at sports events, cheering on her grandchildren, as well as supporting them through all their academic and personal successes. Special thanks to Dr. G. Killick who was so kind and attentive, and to the staff at Rose Garden, New Vista Care Home who gave so much love and care.
