In Celebration of

Nadia Karin Waschuk

January 18, 1941 -  January 16, 2024

Nadia Karin Waschuk was born on January 18, 1941 in Płock, Poland and died on January 16, 2024 in Toronto, Canada, peacefully, painlessly, and after having spent her final hours in the presence of her children. Nadia was predeceased by her parents, and in 2002, by her husband George. She was devoted to her family, to her children, Lesia (Andrew), Lewko, Slawko (Pedro), and Stefko (Christina), and to her grandchildren, Roxolana, Michael, Ruslan, Oriana, Mateyko, and Adrian. Her family will remember her with love, and she will be mourned by relatives and dear friends across Canada and the United States, and in Portugal, Poland, and Ukraine.

Nadia was a pharmacist by profession and a businesswoman by calling who founded or bought and sold five pharmacies before she ended her long career in community pharmacy working with greater stamina than colleagues who were decades younger at Shoppers Drug Mart.

Nadia gave me a chance when most wouldn't. She looked at my resume and hired me on the spot. I enjoyed working for the family. . She was always so nice everyone. My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this hard time.

Very sorry to hear about the passing of подруга Надя.
I remember her very fondly - Nadia was a member of Plast and my counsellor - виховниця when I was a young юначка.
Our group - Боярині в 4-курені, owe Nadia a great deal, as she got us started on the path of scouting, and lifelong friendships.
Вічная памʼять!

My memories of Teta will consist of her letting me work at Stonegate Pharmacy setting up sidewalk sales in the summer and working at the front cash register - it was always a thrill for me! Also times at Gratfton where she would mischievously listen to the boys prank ideas, afternoons down at the pool and sitting on the big deck trying to avoid being called in to do schoolwork. The term ‘Sweetie Pie’ will always bring her memory to mind. May she rest in peace and
be re-united with Vyuko.
