NICHOLET, Annie Tatiana Lukashenko - Was born to Zay and Anna Lukashenko on February 3, 1920, at home on the farm (Sec34 TP9 Rge23 West2) near Dahinda, Saskatchewan. Annie took her schooling at Dahinda. After the passing of her parents she caught a ride with friends to the Love District where she found work for several families in the district. While working there, Annie met John (Sr.) Nicholet, and they were soon married and had one son named John (Jr.) Nicholet. Annie worked beside her husband on the farm for over 40 years. After John (Jr.) completed high school, Annie and John (Sr.) travelled to Arizona and California, spending much of their winters there. Annie was an excellent cook, baker and gardener. Annie's son John (Jr.) would sneak into the deep freeze and nab Annie's famous cookies. When Annie would go to the freezer to get cookies, they would all be gone. Annie would bake these cookies for the grandchildren, delivering them in coffee tins. All the grandchildren knew to guard these cookies with their lives, as you never knew who was nabbing one out of your tin. Annie was a great help in teaching her daughter-in-law Ruth cooking, canning, sewing and gardening. Annie would bake pies, John (Sr.) and his friend Rennie would go fishing at Candle Lake, Trapper's beach with a friend Joe and on one occasion Joe let it slip that John (Sr.) had been trading Annie's pies for their fish. In 1985, Annie and John (Sr.) moved to Nipawin to an easier lifestyle. Annie was an avid stamp collector and writer, she had pen pals from around the world. Annie continued to grow a large garden.
