NICK SMERECHYNSKI May 11, 1924 – May 14, 2020 It is with deepest sadness and sorrow that we announce the peaceful passing of Nick Smerechynski on May 14, 2020 at the age of 96, at Concordia Place Nursing Home. He is survived by his four children and their families; children; Donald (Dale), Malloy, John (Dawnna), and Lana (Mark); grandchildren; Courtney, and Robert, and his sister, Nettie. He was predeceased by his loving wife Mary, son baby William, daughter-in-law Linda, and 13 siblings. He was born and raised on a farm in Medika, Manitoba. At 17 he enlisted to join the allies where he fought all over Europe in WWII. After the war he worked as a miner in Red Lake, Ontario. Once he had saved enough he realized his dream to be an entrepreneur and built his own general store called the Elma Shopping Centre. He was very proud of the variety of merchandise in his store and of his appointment as the area Postmaster. After 25 years, Nick sold his store and moved to the town of Whitemouth. He then became an independent contractor for Canada Post delivering mail to the local communities of Eastern Manitoba. In retirement he enjoyed gardening, fishing and daily adventures with the love of his life Mary. Nick was a joyful, caring man who loved life and making everyone laugh with his jokes and smiles. His true love was being a husband, dad, grandpa, brother, and friend. The family are very appreciative of the health care workers, recreational team, and staff at Concordia Place Nursing home for their care and compassion. At this time, the immediate family will have a private memorial, and will hold a Celebration of Life with family and friends when circumstances allow. An online book of condolences may be signed at Donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba or The War Amps. May God welcome you into his Kingdom with ultimate peace and love! You will live on in our hearts and prayers, until we meet again.
