Wanda Paskuski

1930 – 2021

It is with great sadness that the family of Wanda Paskuski announces her passing at the age of 90 years.

Wanda was born in Lithuania to John and Martha Umeris. She immigrated to Canada with her family in 1947.

Wanda met George though mutual friends at a dance. They married in 1952 and settled in Lethbridge where they resided until her passing.

Wanda was a devoted wife and mother. A woman of strength and beauty, inside and out. She had a kind heart, loved animals, especially dogs and they loved her. Wanda also had many culinary talents, particularly baking. In her earlier days, she provided pies for her Mom’s downtown café. It was rumored that the “boys’ from Beny’s Chev Olds would frequent Martha’s Coffee Shop, specifically to enjoy a piece of those pies.

Wanda will be missed by her children Gary (Lori) Paskuski, Gail (Larry) Gibb, Karen (Blair) Nyrose; grandchildren Natasha (Gino) Limongiello, Christopher Gaspari, Josh (Sara) Gibb, Chad (Roisin) Gibb, Brittney (Brock Chisholm) Nyrose, Kassidy Nyrose; great-grandchildren Olivia Jalbert, Micah Gibb, Taya Gibb, Cait Gibb, Jonah Gibb; siblings Fred (Gail) Umeris, Hardy Umeris; sister-in-law Alma Umeris; brothers and sisters-in-law Ab (Jeanne) Paskuski and Roy (Vera) Paskuski, as well as numerous nieces, nephews and their families.

Besides her loving husband George, Wanda is pre-deceased by her parents John and Martha Umeris; sister Irene Umeris; brother Arnold Umeris and sister-in-law Donna Umeris.

The family wishes to thank the staff at Fairmont Extendicare for their devotion to caring for their “Wanda-Licious”, our precious Mom!
