We Remember

LUKENCHUK, Elsie Rose (née Kostiuk)

It is with loving memory and sorrowful regret to announce the peaceful passing of Elsie Rose Lukenchuk (née Kostiuk) on April 9, 2021. Reuniting with her predeceased husband, Andrew; daughter Elaine; brother Albert; and her parents John and Mary Kostiuk, Elsie will be immensely missed by her son Ken; her grandchildren Heather, Marc, Ryan, and Andrea; her great-grandchild Hannah Rai; in addition to innumerable friends and relatives.

Special recognition and sincere gratitude for their compassionate caring is extended to Dr. M. Bobyn and Dr. A. Gray, the remarkable staff at Northwood Residence and Brookhaven Care Center, and to those supportive and understanding professionals at Interior Health and the Kelowna General Hospital.

As current pandemic considerations preclude formal funeral services at this time, future arrangements will be made when deemed appropriate. It is kindly requested that, in lieu of flowers, any memorial donations are to be made to the BC Cancer Agency Sindi Ahluwalia Hawkins Centre for the Southern Interior.

    Dear family of Elsie. I often sat with Elsie for our evening meal and on our N.W. bus. We enjoyed each other’s company & I missed her so much when she no longer came to the dining room. She has been in my thoughts and prayers so much these past few months. I never did/could find out where she was. Now I know she is with her loved ones in Eternity. Her Faith was obvious to me. I will recall and appreciate smile and warm greetings now. May she Rest in the Peace & Joy of the Lord, as she lived in His Love and care here Earth.
    Respectfully, Betty Yarrow, NWRR
