It is with sadness that we share the peaceful passing of Maria Boychuk in her hundredth year.
Beloved wife of the late Joseph Boychuk. Loving mother to George (Emily), Emil (Lynda), Luba (Fred) and Bill (Sue). Beloved Baba of John (Elizabeth), Paul, Lara, and Emilee (Jeff). Doting great grandbaba to Asher, Elise, Jack and Luke.
Maria was born in Cinewa, Ukraine in 1921 and immigrated to Toronto in 1950. Maria was first and foremost, devoted to loving and caring for her family. Maria was a lover of nature. She had a green thumb and kept beautiful flower and vegetable gardens that she tended to. She was an incredible cook, filling anyone’s belly who entered her home with delicious Ukrainian delicacies. She was an avid seamstress who took great joy in making clothing and costumes for her children and grandchildren. In her later years, she enjoyed reading and living close to nature at her home near High Park.
She will be greatly missed by her family, extended family and all that knew her.
