We Remember


January 1, 1970 — January 1, 1970

John Krasnuik passed away peacefully at the age of 94, on January 27, 2013. He was born on November 29, 1918 in Stuartburn, MB. John spent his early years in Sundown, MB and married Nettie Evankevich; they married, worked their farm and raised nine children.

He retired in Kelowna, BC where he enjoyed his favourite activities; walking, riding his bicycle and going out to the forest to cut his own firewood.  His garden was his pride and he loved to boast how he got the grand kids to pick the weeds; garlic and tomatoes became his specialty.

John was a “one of a kind man” who will be missed by all who knew him.  He is survived by his children; George (Shirley), Sonja, Luba, Elizabeth (Tom), Russell (Melodie), Theresa, Marilyn (Roger), Elaine (Garry), his sister Helen Balla, 19 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren.  He was predeceased by his son Borden (1989), his wife Nettie (2006), his parents William (1959) and Anne (1979), brothers Peter, Jack, Steve, Nick, Alex,   Mike and sisters Nellie, Mary, Francis, and Jean.

The family would like to extend a very special thank you to all the nurses and staff at the Three Links Manor and Dr.Tara Sebulsky for their loving care and support of John. A celebration of life will be held in late June 2013 in Steinbach, MB.
