     With heavy hearts, the family of Kassie Kwasny, announce her passing at the Yorkton Regional Health Center on October 27, 2019, at the age of 100 years.

     Kassie was born to Mike and Anastasia (Zawerucha) Barteski in the Preeceville District, the sixth of nine children. Kassie as a school age child attended Beaver Bluff School.

     In 1945, she married Mike Kwasny and they farmed in the Rama area. They were blessed with four sons. Mike passed away in 1979.  In 1980, Kassie moved to Buchanan where she resided until a couple months before her passing when she became a resident of the Preeceville Nursing Home.

     She loved living in town. She greatly enjoyed volunteering at many different functions and attending bingo with her friends. Kassie was a dedicated member of St. Anne’s RC Church in Buchanan. She loved gardening, but most precious to her were visits from her children and grandchildren. Kassie cherished her incredible friendship with her neighbour, Pauline Kozak and after Pauline’s passing, was fortunate to find a new friend in her new neighbour, Jackie.

      She is survived by her sons John (Marcella), Joe (Katherine), Lenard (Tess) and Gerald (Twila); 11 grandchildren; 15 great-grandchildren and her brother, Frank.

      Kassie was predeceased by her parents, Mike and Anastasia, her brothers Paul and Mike; her sisters Anne, Pauline, Mary, Victoria and Joyce; her grandchildren Jason and Melanie.
