Jean Witko (nee Dudeck)
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our dear mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Jean Witko on March 12, 2023 at the young age of 105 years.
Predeceased by our Dad John who has patiently been waiting to welcome her to their new heavenly home for 21 years. Mom will be missed dearly and lovingly remembered by her 5 children; Joe (Paulette), Jim (Cheryl), Irene (Chris), Dianne (Sam), Bob (Shawna) and her 12 grandchildren and their families: Debbie, Susie, Tammy, Lori, Garwood, David, Jodi, Carri, Leah, Rachelle, Brett and Kandace along with 14 great grandchildren.
Mom was the youngest of 8 children born to Michael and Marie Dudeck on September 23, 1917 in Garson, Manitoba. She met our Dad and they married in 1942. With a lot of hard work and determination they built a life together and raised their family on the farm in East Selkirk where they lived for 35 years.
Mom’s greatest love was her family and nothing made her happier than all of us being together. Sunday dinners were a must and missing them was not an option! We will never forget all the wonderful meals she made for us as she truly was the best cook ever.
Mom and Dad retired from farming in 1977 and moved to Selkirk. Mom was a very strong willed, amazing and independent lady living in her condo and being totally self sufficient to care for herself.
We will miss her dearly but happy that she is reunited with our father. Cremation has taken place and a private celebration of life will take place with her family.
Flowers are gratefully declined. Those who wish to donate in her memory are invited to contribute to the Selkirk Food Bank or the charity of their choice.
Rest in Peace Mom and Gramma You will live on in our hearts forever.
