With great sadness, the family of the late Tannis Strukoff announce her sudden passing at the Pasqua Hospital- Palliative Care Unit in Regina on April 8, 2023 at the age of 85 years.

Tannis Eileen Strukoff was born on May 4, 1937 in the Pelly District to John and Polly Strukoff.  She lived on a farm along with her parents and her two younger brothers, Larry and William.

Tannis received her education from the Lister Country School and later attended the Pelly High School, graduating in 1956.  After high school, Tannis moved to Winnipeg to attend a Commercial College and worked in Winnipeg for several years.  She later moved to Santa Monica, California where she resided for many years and worked in the banking system.

In 1975, Tannis moved back to Winnipeg and then eventually relocated back to Kamsack.  In 1987, she received her Certification as a Licensed Cosmetologist and worked at local hair salons.  She eventually opened Haircourt Beauty Salon, her home-based business.

During her retirement years, Tannis and her partner Walter Chernoff enjoyed travelling to California and spent many winters in Palm Springs along with their adopted cats Riffie and Alfie. They developed lifelong friendships, enjoying socializing and spending time with both friends and family during their travels.

As per Tannis’s wishes, a private Celebration of Life event for family and close friends will be held at a later date at the Riverview Cemetery, Kamsack.
