We sadly announce the peaceful passing of Stella Gill, at Concordia Place, on August 24, 2020, at the age of 91.
Stella was born and raised in St. Boniface to parents, William and Mary Kaluznick. She started working at a young age at Swifts and in later years at Canada Safeway Meat Department until her retirement. Stella married her husband Wally Gill, November 24, 1956. They resided and raised their children, Darlene and Russell, in their home on Regent Avenue. In 2018 Stella moved to Concordia Place.
A stronger woman you will never find. Fiercely independent, emotionally strong, hardworking, kind and generous, always wanting to help others. She loved baking and cooking for her family and friends making everyone their favourites. Many of us were fortunate to receive a supply of her perogies and cabbage rolls to enjoy.
Stella loved Bingo! There is probably not one bingo hall in Transcona that she did not patronize. She volunteered in the canteens with her sister Minnie and made many lifelong friends.
Predeceased by her husband Wally, daughter Darlene, son Russell. Her twin sister in infancy, sisters, Nellie Semnovitch, Olga Oberton, Minnie Kaluznick and Zoe Strychar, brothers, Edward, Walter and Stan, brothers and sisters in-law.
Survived by her son-in-law Eugene, sister-in-law Bev Kaluznick, Calgary, many loving nieces and nephews and their families, cousin David Leveque and friends.
Thank you to the staff at Concordia Place for taking such good care of her.
Due to the current group size restrictions, a private family service will take place.
In lieu of flowers a donation to the Concordia Foundation Inc. or a charity of your choice can be made in her memory should you so desire.
