EWACHESKI: Anne (Kindiak) April 20, 1928 – August 12, 2022 Age 94 years.
Anne ( Kindiak) Ewacheski was born on April 20, 1928 on her parents, Irene and Bill Kindiak’s homestead near Verigin, Saskatchewan
She attended the Rona School. In Anne’s early years of life she worked at a hotel in Yorkton, SK where she met her husband Mike Ewacheski. They were married on April 18, 1953 and moved to Virden, MB. Anne wasn’t fond of living in Manitoba and it was not long before they moved to Runnymede, SK which was Mike’s home town and much closer to Anne’s family. Here they ran their first family business called Royalite Gas Station. While living in Runnymede, Mike and Anne adopted their 1st daughter, 3 month old Pamela in 1964. Then in 1968 they adopted their 2nd daughter, 17 month old Jane.
In 1976 Anne and Mike bought a home in Kamsack on Nicholas Street. While living there, they built and ran their family business Lake Trail Esso. On numerous days you would find Anne either pumping gas or doing books.
Later, Anne went to work part time at the ‘King George Hotel’ for Mr. & Mrs. Fairyen and continued to work there after Glen Boychuk bought and renamed it ‘The Woodlander Hotel’. On the days she didn’t work you could find Anne either having coffee or playing cards. The only full day she spent at home was Thursday. She claimed that was the day she “caught up” with her work, however some Thursday mornings you might find her at the neighbors having a quick coffee in the summertime.
Anne had many friends and loved spending time with them, or, with her family. She loved to play cards, Rummy for a cent a point, listening to Ukrainian music and go dancing as often as she could.
Anne was a member of St Joseph’s Ukrainian Catholic Church in Kamsack and would often partake in making perogies or helping serve lunches after church until she was no longer able to.
Anne joined the Senior Citizens center and during her last years in Kamsack spent her time playing her favorite card game, Rummy or attending Bingo or playing Kaiser. She loved to play cards with her grandkids when she would stay with them.
In September of 2019, Anne fell and broke her neck. It was at this point that with some persuasion from her daughters she moved into the Eagle Stone Lodge. It was a major adjustment for her but she reassured her daughters that she knew this was best and at 91 years of age, she should not be living alone anymore. Unfortunately, in July of 2020 Anne fell again, this time breaking her hip.
She was taken to Saskatoon for a hip replacement and while in the hospital the doctors felt she also needed a pacemaker. Anne went under 2 major surgeries that summer and never fully recovered from it due to Covid. Anne moved into St Joseph’s Nursing Home where she lived until she passed.
On August 12, 2022 at 4am, Anne passed away peacefully in her sleep with her daughter Pamela at her side.
Anne is predeased by her parents, her husband Mike Ewacheski, her sister Mary, brothers Bill and John and her 1st grandchild (Nykolaishen).
She is survived by her daughter Pamela and husband Darren Warren of Martinsville, SK. Her daughter Jane and husband Bob Hoy of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.
Her granddaughter Justine McCaffrey and great grandchildren Kaesen, Deakin and Kiptyn of Saskatoon, SK. Grandson Travis Nykolaishen of Watrous, Sk. Grandson Codie Chutskoff and wife Jenaya and great grandchildren Lilah and Odin of Warman, SK. Grandson Tanner Chutskoff and wife Ashley and great grandchildren Sawyer and Nikita of Kamsack, SK. Mikhail Chutskoff and Cassandra Sorenson of Fernie, BC and Grandson Jayden Chutskoff and fiancé Alley Schmidt of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. Also numerous nephews and nieces. Anne will be missed and always remembered by all who knew her.
