We Remember

UKRAINETZ (nee Fedak), Patricia Maureen

Patricia passed away March 25, 2019 at the age of 51 in Kelowna, BC. She was born in Foam Lake, SK on July 6, 1967 into a family of 8 siblings, was raised in Foam Lake and Tuffnell, SK, completing her grade 12 in 1985 in Foam Lake.  After graduation, she ventured to Saskatoon and attended secretarial school.  Because she was blessed with height and beautiful looks, she took up modeling, which took her to Japan in 1989 with a group of girls calling themselves “Charlie’s Angels.”  Patricia also did a music video with the Johner Brothers in 1993, “Starting Right Now,” which she was very proud of.  After returning from Japan, she had met Dave Stromberg and was blessed with three beautiful children: Chase and twins Sky and Zak who were the love of her life.  Through the years, she was also the owner of her pride and joy establishment, “The Viking Club.”  Patricia operated the Viking Club for many years where she met many good friends. She was always the life of the party; your beverages were always full, and you could always hear one of her favorites as you walked through the door—AC/CD, Stiff Upper Lip album. It was the hot spot in Saskatoon, SK.

Patricia had a special bond with her twin sister Melissa; she always knew she could come to her in the good times and bad. Patricia was also very proud to be a godmother to Christopher, Kristea and Meg to whom she always offered knowledge and guidance.

In 2008, Patricia was reunited with her long-time best friend and the love of her life Kenny Ukrainetz.  They were married in May 2011 in Tuffnell, SK.  They started their life in Shellbrooke, SK and then ventured to Kenny’s hometown of Kelowna, BC.  In 2015, she was diagnosed with breast cancer, which she thought she had beat.  Then in 2018 it came back in her breast, lungs and liver.  Patricia was lucky enough to be able to stay at home with her loving husband Kenny until March 22, when she moved into Hospice House.  She took her final breaths on the evening of March 25 with her devoted Kenny and sisters Carla and Nancy by her side.  Patricia was always a loving, caring person who lived each day with courage, strength and a positive outlook despite what she was going through.   She lit up the room when she walked in with her smile and warm embrace. As her daughter Sky quoted, “God only takes the prettiest flowers home.”

Patricia is survived by her husband Kenny; her children Chase (Jayden Krieger), Sky and Zak; her mother Betty Fedak; her father and mother-in-law Victor and Yvette Ukrainetz; her brother Mark (Joan) Fedak and their children Amy and Max; her sister Marianne (Laverne) Hannotte and their children Matisson, Matana and Lucia; her sister Carla (Brad) Shrader and their children Christopher (Kristine) (their children Natasha and CJ), Brandon (Brittany) and Brittany; her sister Nancy (John) Zuchkan and their children Nicole (Korby) Koshman with children Taylor and Jase; Jordan and Nathan; her sister Melissa (Kelly) Maksimow and their daughters Elle, Meg and Bess; her sister Marcella (Tim LaFournaise) and their daughter Kristea (Derek); and her brother Jeremy (Debbie) Fedak and their children Garrett (Presley), Brenna, Kaden and Matteo; her brother-in-law Barry (Debbie) Ukrainetz and numerous uncles, aunties and cousins. She was predeceased by her father Walter Fedak, her grandparents and numerous cats.

On behalf of Kenny, Chase, Sky, Zak and the rest of her family, we would like to thank you all for the phone calls, cards, flowers and Facebook messages. It is amazing how many hearts Patricia had touched.

A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, April 20 at 2:00 pm at the Foam Lake Seniors Centre on Main St, Foam Lake, SK. A Graveside Service will be held at a later date. Should family and friends so desire, memorial donations may be made to an SPCA, as we all knew Patricia loved her cats and loved to stop in Kelowna at the SPCA to visit them all. If you wish to send a condolence, post photos or share a memory, please scroll down the page to the area called “Share Your Condolences.”

    My deepest sympathy to Kenny and family. I am so sorry for this great loss. I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers, that God will comfort you, giving you strength to get through this and leaving you with peace. Patricia was a special cousin and will be remembered with fond memories.

  • Sherry Halvorson says:

    My thoughts and prayers are with each and everyone of you during this most difficult time. I went to highschool and graduated with Paticia and the memories I have of her are fabulous, we always had so much fun, laughing in class and literally driving the teachers crazy to just hanging out in the hallways. Patricia definitely had a heart of gold and the soul of an angel and no matter who you were or where you came from she always treated everyone like a life long friend . I am truly saddened to hear of Patricia’s passing, so young and vibrant and now she is an angel called home. I will cherish all the great times I had with her….great great person xo
