Clara (née Elkew) Bobinski

BOBINSKI, Clara (née Elkew) - December 30, 1917 - Jan 3, 2017 Clara passed away on January 3, 2017 at Grey Nun's Hospital in Edmonton, AB at the age of 99. She was born in Fairy Glen, Saskatchewan on December 30th, 1917 to Peter and Mary Elkew. Clara resided in the Melfort area for 50 or so years and 5 or so years in the Humboldt area. She was a farmer's wife who lived off the land and took pride in everything she did. She kept a beautiful home, worked hard in her gardens, canned all manner of fruits and vegetables, and there was always a home cooked meal and fresh baking to be had at her table. Her flower gardens brought her immense joy. She was a self-taught horticulturalist, and the extended growing season in Kelowna beckoned her. She resided in Kelowna for 35 years and then moved on to the senior’s complex in Leduc for the latter part of her life. Clara is preceded in death by her husband Michael in 1969; her parents, Peter and Mary; two brothers, Paul and Harry; her sister, Annie; and her beloved son, Frank. Clara is survived by her sister, Lena; her sons Leonard (Ella) grandchildren Trent, Vicki and Jason; Peter (Evelyn) grandchildren Michael and Brittany; Jim (Jackie) grandchildren Jeff and Jason; her daughters Beverly (Peter) Semeniuk grandchildren Brad and Jay; and Lynda (John) Sereda grandchildren Cassie and Michelle; as well as grandchildren Gary, Wayne, Donna, Wanda and Jonathon (children of Frank (Connie)); along with twenty great-grandchildren and fifteen great-great-grandchildren. As per Clara's wishes, no funeral will be held. Instead, a memorial and celebration of her life will occur at a later date. The family wishes to extend their gratitude to Extendicare Leduc for the excellent care Clara received. Serenity Funeral Services in Leduc, AB handled all the funeral arrangements.
