1927 – 2015
Konstantin Acehaida passed away peacefully at St. Michael’s Palliative Care Unit on Sunday, November 15, 2015 at the age of 88 years.
He leaves his loving wife Anna; his daughters Elizabeth (Bill) Slack and Teresa (Lonnie) Baceda; grandchildren Jade (Shane) Krupinski, Joanna Russell, and Chris Slack; 4 great grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews, grandson-in-law Cam Russell, as well as sister-in-law, Nadia Krywonis.
Konstantin was born on April 10, 1927 in the village of Kostopol, Ukraine. Kon and Anna immigrated to Canada in 1948 arriving in Lethbridge where Kon began work on a local farm hoeing sugar beets. His hard work and determination resulted in a rewarding and successful farming career in Skiff spanning 55 years. He was a man of integrity, generous and kind, who will be dearly missed by his family and friends.
The family would like to thank Dr. Forstell for his care over the last few years and the palliative team and staff at St. Michael’s for their compassionate care and respectful attention to Kon during his last days. You have all been a comfort to us during this very difficult time.
A Funeral Mass will be held at 10:00am, on Friday, November 20, 2015 at MARTIN BROTHERS RIVERVIEW CHAPEL, 610 – 4th Street S. Lethbridge. Interment will follow in Mountain View Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, a memorial donation may be made to St. Michael’s Palliative Care, 1400 – 9th Ave South, Lethbridge, AB, T1J 4V5.
