Obituary of Victoria Verna Kuzio
Kuzio, Victoria (nee Sawchuk) On May 14, 2021, Victoria Kuzio of Two Hills passed away at the age of 88 years. She will be lovingly remembered by her children, Darrell (Joni), Terry (Marcella), and Darcy (Shelley); grandchildren, Robert, Michael (Maureen), Ryan (Loren), Alicia (Clay), Katelyn (Dane), Mariah, and Isabelle (Nick); great-grandchildren, Forest and Oliver; brother, Victor (Anne) Sawchuk, and many extended family and friends. She was predeceased by her first husband Oliver Kuzio; second husband Boris Humen; parents, Mike and Mary Sawchuk, and brother John Sawchuk. Victoria was a wonderful and caring wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She was our beloved Baba, kind and generous. Family was precious to her, and she enjoyed telling stories and sharing photos. Many of her fondest memories were of the years tending to the farm with Oliver, raising their three sons. Victoria was extremely proud of her grandchildren, and she would end every conversion with “I love you.” Her family brought her great joy and happiness. She especially loved having everyone around the table, enjoying her delicious Ukrainian meals of perogies, holubtsi, nachynka, and nalysnyky. Her cinnamon buns and paska were favorites. Victoria was an avid gardener and was very proud of the beautiful flowers and abundant vegetables she grew. Baba enjoyed listening to ‘CFCW’ while cleaning and canning the produce. She was as comfortable behind the wheel of a combine harvester as she was in front of a sewing machine. She was an excellent seamstress, and enjoyed knitting and crocheting hats, scarves, slippers, and baby blankets. Baba touched countless lives with her contributions to the community. She worked as a Health Care Aide at the Two Hills Health Centre Long Term Care Unit, and volunteered with the Hospital Auxiliary, the Hillside Lodge, Meals Assistance Program for hospital patients, the Alice Melnyk Library, and the United Church. She worked at many Pancake Breakfasts and Perogy Suppers. During her final month, Victoria resided at the Hillside Lodge, where she enjoyed renewed friendships and was appreciative of the excellent care provided by the staff and Home Care. Victoria gave generously of herself to her family and community. We were blessed to have her in our lives, and we will miss her greatly. Due to Covid 19 restrictions, a private funeral service will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Two Hills United Church, Box 795, Two Hills, AB T0B 4K0.
