DAGNY ROSAMUND LENCHUK (nee HANSON)
July 5, 1946 - February 7, 2020
It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our dear mom after a courageous battle with cancer.
Mom is survived by life friend Joseph Lenchuk; daughter Shelly Wright (Tim Wright); son Darryl Lenchuk (Anne Morin); grandchildren Blair Colles, Brooke Colles (Troy Byzak ), Morgan Lenchuk and her mother Nita Jackson; great-granddaughters Sequoia Mayo, Zyrah Mayo and their mother Melissa Mayo; numerous friends and family on both the Hanson and Lenchuk sides of the family
Mom was predeceased by her mother Disa Hanson; brother Harold Hanson (Linda Hanson) and sister Signy Stokes (Peter Stokes).
Mom was born in Winnipeg, lived in Winnipeg, Headingley, Kitimat BC, Clandeboye, Matlock, Red Deer AB, Petersfield and Selkirk.
Mom was a hairdresser by trade and worked many years for Gaynor Foods in Selkirk. In moms younger days she enjoyed playing baseball, snowmobiling, playing cards with friends, curling, and working in her flower and vegetable gardens. Every Saturday morning mom made blue berry pancakes for all the neighbour kids. Later in life mom was content to be with her kids, grandchildren and granddaughters.
Mom had a soft side to her, but don’t be fooled she could also get herself into mischief. At the age of 72 with her health declining she decided to climb into the swimming pool with her great-granddaughters while no one else was looking to prove she could still have fun!
Mom often spoke of her fondest memories having BBQ gatherings and bon fires with her cousins, aunts and uncles in Gimli.
Mom is remembered for her great cooking, especially her cheese cake, vinatarta, holopchi, perogies, ski cake and relish.
The family wish to thank the staff at Betel Home in Selkirk for the kind care provided to our mom. Thanks to the many doctors, nurses, aids and social workers at Selkirk Hospital for the care mom received while in hospital until her move to Betel Home. Special thanks for the support mom received from the IERHA Community Mental Health team, Proctor Program and IERHA Canadian Mental Health Association for the endless supports provided.
As per mom’s wishes cremation has taken place and there will be no formal service. As mom was known more of a giver than receiver, those wishing to make a memorial donation to help others who struggle with mental illness in her name you can do so by sending to: IERHA Canadian Mental Health Association at 435 Main Street Selkirk Manitoba R1A 1V4.
Until we meet again rest in peace in heavens gardens mom! You will never be forgotten and always loved and missed by your family. XOXO
