Our family is deeply saddened to announce the passing of Olga Chrapko on September 12, 2022 at the age of 90. Her loving husband of 69 years, Nickolas (Nick) was at her side. Olga leaves behind two daughters Cathy Kent (David Rive) and Nancy Findlay (Dale), 4 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren. Olga was predeceased by her parents, 3 siblings and son-in-law Duane Kent.
Born in Kapuskasing, ON in 1931, the family moved to Pugwash, NS and in 1941 relocated, making Toronto, ON their home. In a time when women seldom worked outside the home, Olga took pride in her work with TD Bank where she was known as “Ollie” by her co-workers and customers. She had a strong work ethic and was seldom idle. There were so many things Olga loved to do: cooking, sewing, gardening and entertaining family and friends to name just a few. At the cottage Olga would spend hours reading, watching the hummingbirds, boating and fishing. Remaining always humble, she would out-fish her husband and great-grandsons every time!
When faced with her third and final battle with cancer, Olga remained resilient in the face of adversity. She lived each day to its fullest and represented all that is good in life. Olga will forever remain in the hearts of all who loved her.
Visitation will take place at Turner & Porter, Butler Chapel, 4933 Dundas St. W., Etobicoke at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday September 20, 2022, immediately followed by the service at 11:00 a.m.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Red Cross Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis Appeal or Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated. Alternatively, take a moment to hug a loved one or walk in the woods for a minute, an hour or a day. Time waits for no one.
