MARY MANDZIUK
(CHOBOTAR)
September 4, 1929 - May 6, 2021

It is with sad hearts that we announce the passing of our wife, mother and Baba, Mary Mandziuk (Chobotar), in the afternoon of Thursday, May 6, 2021. We are grateful that Dad, Andy and Joan were able to be by her bedside.
Mary will be greatly missed by her husband Samuel, children, Paul (Ann: Elizabeth), Andy (Joan: Tracy (Devlen); Todd (Renee: Tyson, Dylan, Addison); Jackie (Shannon: Neveda, Camdyn)), Bill (Wendy: Erin, Brianna), Nancy (Laurie (Ashley: Max), Erik (Jaxon), and Bob, brothers John and Nick (Rosalee), sister-in-law Edna Egelstad. Mary had a large extended family and network of friends that will also be missing her.
Mary was predeceased by her parents George and Elena Chobotar, two brothers in infancy, beloved sister Dorothy Kiesman and son-in-law Barrie Kosie.
Mary was born and raised in Sirko, MB. She started dating Samuel at the age of 13, and they were married for over 73 years. Together they raised their five children in KingsPark (Fort Richmond) until they moved to Ste. Anne area when Dad retired. They enjoyed many family trips with their kids, loaded into a car and camping along the way. After the youngest started school, Mary took a job at the U of M working in Food Services until she experienced some health issues and decided to retire.
Mom and Dad took many winter trips to the southern States searching for the ideal place to spend their winters in retirement, settling with Weslaco, TX, where they enjoyed 25 winters making many friends and phone calls home to annoy the family with details of the weather.
Mom was all about family. She hosted many Christmas Eve dinners at her home, having her family and brothers and sister and their families fill the house, feeding everyone and ensuring there was plenty of leftovers for days to come. Her cabbage rolls, perogies and homemade bread were always enjoyed by the kids and grandkids, and anyone that dropped by.
The last few years were a challenge for Mary, but with her strength and determination she was able to find pleasure in the little things in life.
The family would like to thank all the staff at Vita Personal Care Home for their kindness, caring and compassion shown to Mary during her stay and especially when things became hard at the end. You are a wonderful group of people, Thank you.
If wished, memorial donations may be made to Vita Personal care home, in Lieu of flowers.
Due to the ongoing covid restrictions, a private family graveside service will be held at a later date.

Condolences & Memories (7 entries)

  • Our deepest condolences to the Mandziuk family on the passage of cousin Mary. We lived in Sirko as did Mary and her family. We left Sirko some time ago for BC but still saw Mary and Sam at various family get togethers over the years and on trips back to Manitoba. We always enjoyed talking to her and Sam. We were delighted to see Mary and Sam drop by our place in Langley BC on a surprise visit a few years ago. It was always good to see them. Mary was a wonderful cousin who cared so much about people around her. We will miss her. Thinking of you all, Dennis and Bev Chobotar and families. - Posted by: Dennis Chobotar (Cousin) on: May 29, 2021

  • Losing a mother is one of the deepest sorrows a heart can know, But her goodness, caring and wisdom will live on, like a legacy of love that will always be with you and your family, may that love surround you and your family now and bring you and your family peace - Posted by: Mike and Mary Gushulak (friend) on: May 09, 2021

  • We were neighbors with Mary & Sam in our TX winter home. Enjoyed visits and making cabbage rolls along with Easter bread. They were a joy to know. May your memories of Mary give you peace. Sam our hearts ache for you and your family. - Posted by: Jerry & Jeanette Hohbach (TX friends) on: May 08, 2021

  • Nancy, I am truly saddened to hear of your Mom's passing and wish that we were in different times so that we could gather to pay our respects. I'm sure Bonnie would agree that our Mothers are busy catching up and supporting one another! Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Pam & family, including Gail's girls xoxo - Posted by: Pamela Chaves (Family Aquaintance) on: May 08, 2021

  • Deepest condolences to the Mandzuik (Chobotar) families on the passing of a remarkable woman. Mary was our neighbour and family friend across Alexander (Silverstone) Street in King's Park. My sister, Linda and I knew her as mother to Paul and Andy. We also saw Mary at Ukrainian weddings and gatherings. She always greeted us with that distinctive beautiful and welcoming smile that I will never forget. Rest in peace, lovely lady. - Posted by: Genevie (Rybak) Henderson (King's Park neighbour and childhood friend to sons) on: May 08, 2021

  • My sincere condolences to the family on their mother’s passing. I grew up in the same area (King’s Park) and new the family well. We were a small community and the children all hung out together. Later in life I worked with Mary at the U of M. She was always a cheerful person at work. Again my thoughts are with you at this time. - Posted by: Carol Stoess (Friend) on: May 08, 2021

  • Paul, Anne and Elizabeth, May all the fondest memories of your Mom bring you a sense of peace and solace during this time. I hope that the great memories and cherished moments you shares, will bring you comfort. We extend our heartfelt sympathy to you and you entire family. Thinking of you, Donna, Bill Jr, Geoff and Rob - Posted by: Donna Larner (friend) on: May 08, 2021
