passed away peacefully at Rainycrest on September 9, 2021 at the age of 96.
She was born on July 7, 1925 in Shell River, Manitoba to Ladyk and Anasthasia Urbanski.
Mom completed high school and college in Winnipeg and then relocated to Fort Frances to be near her brother Paul. After WWII she met the love of her life, Nickolas Rogozinski, and they married on November 27, 1951. He remained the love of her life up until she passed away and now they will be together again.
Mom was an active member of the Knox United Church and spent many volunteer hours in the Church office, teaching Sunday School and Explorers. She was also a member of the U.C.W., the Legion Auxilliary, the Hospital Auxilliary, the Rainycrest Auxilliary, the Royal Purple and Sister Kennedy Centre. She loved being involved in the community and working with her many friends.
Most of her work career focused at being a stay-at-home mom and she was a very loving and caring mother who was always there for her family. A regular enjoyment in her life was her weekends at home playing cards or games with her family or many wonderful friends and sharing laughs and stories. Many of her close friends have passed away but their memories were kept alive with the stories she shared. A big thank you to all her friends and their families for many great memories.
She is survived by her daughter, Dorothy Ellen Poperechny (Len) and her son Gary Andrew Rogozinski, (Debbie). Her grandchildren, Jeff (Bri), Dan (Noreen), Andrew, Nicole (Scott), (and their mother Karla-Marie). Her Great Grandchildren, Sloane, Jude, Kiplan, Aspen. Debbie’s daughters, Kristen (Mike), Janelle and their kids Payton and Hayden. She was predeceased by her husband Nickolas Rogozinski, her brothers Paul (died overseas in WWII), Victor and sister Joyce.
Mom chose a private family funeral service. She will be cremated and buried beside her loving husband. Honorary Pallbearers will be her Grandchildren.
