HASTIE, Paulette It is with sad hearts that the family of Paulette Hastie announce her passing on February 13th, 2021. Paulette was born alongside her twin-brother Paul at the Cudworth Hospital. She took her elementary school in Tarnapol and Yellow Creek, then moved to Saskatoon and took Grades 10 through 12 at Bedford Road Collegiate. She worked 13 different jobs in her life, including Dental Assistant, School Secretary and Teacher-Aide (Lucky Lake School), and Esthetician. Paulette is lovingly survived by her husband of 47 years, Jerry, her son Jason (Gina), daughter Leah (Andrew), her five much-loved grandgirls (Bronwynn, Isabelle, Scarlett, Eva, and Olivia), sisters Sylvia and Emily, brothers Eldred and Jon, nephews, nieces, and many family friends. She was pre-deceased by her mother Kathleen (Kostiuk), father Walter (Hrytzak), twin-brother Paul Hrytsak, and nephew and godson Rod Woytowich. Paulette loved baking, vegetable gardening, decorating, reading, dancing, hosting parties, and she dearly loved spending time with and sharing with all about her family. She and Jerry were fortunate to move close to their five grandgirls three years ago, and teaching and being close to her grandgirls made Paulette so happy. Paulette's written belief was "Life is a gift - wake up every day and remember that. Thank God. Praise God always. Believe in Jesus Christ." She wants most to be remembered for the unconditional love she had for her family. Paulette's funeral was held in Saskatoon on February 20th and a celebration for her family and friends will be held this summer (Covid-dependent) in Saskatoon for family and friends. __________________________________________________
