Angela (Nellie) Graboweski


Peacefully, on Thursday, July 9, 2020 at Gimli Community Health Centre with her loving family by her side Angela passed away at the age of 94 years.

Angela is survived by her children Ben (Gladys), Victoria (John), Irene, Angie (Mike) and Joe (Lois); grandchildren Rosayln (Tom), Mark, John (Melissa), Josh (Cher), Jaymes (Ashley), Jordan (Nicole), Melissa (Darcy), Arianna, Garrett, and Hailey; great grandchildren Lydia, Brandt, Adelyne, Jack, Nevayah, Makenna, Preston and Sutton. She is also survived by her brother Andy Yablonski and sisters-in-law Pat Yablonski, Irene Tataryn and Marie Graboweski.

Angela was predeceased by her husband of 57 years, Emil Graboweski; parents Anthony and Katherine Yablonski; sons-in-law Terry Allen and Chi Man; brothers John, Walter, Frank, Joe and Peter Yablonski; sisters Mary Michaluk, Jean Nickarz and Anne Kozera.

She was born August 2, 1925, in Malonton, Manitoba. Emil and Angela married in 1951 and they started the dairy farm in 1952, where they resided and raised their family. In 1978, they sold the dairy and established the present day Graboweski Concrete, a business from which she never really “retired.” Angela was a long time member of the parish at Our Lady of the Lake Roman Catholic Church in Winnipeg Beach.

Her hands were never still – cooking, baking and gardening – but her true passion was her family. There was always room for you at Angela’s table and nothing made her happier then having everyone together at Sunday gatherings after church.

Mass will be invitation only at Our Lady of the Lake Church on Friday July 17, 2020 in Winnipeg Beach. Interment will follow at 11:15 A.M. in the Polish Pioneer Cemetery (#9 Hwy, Winnipeg Beach) where everyone is welcome, respecting COVID-19 restrictions.  

In lieu of flowers, donations in Angela’s memory may be made to the Polish Pioneer Cemetery.

Condolences may be left on her tribute wall at

Gilbart Funeral Home, Gimli in care of arrangements.
