Stephanie Alexander passed away peacefully, with family by her side, at Extendicare Moose Jaw on Monday, April 6th, 2015 at the age of 97 years. She was predeceased by her first husband, Julius Radwanski; second husband, Alexander Alexander; mother and father, Maria and Cornel Boszak; step-father, Peter Macura; brothers: William, Carl and Victor Boszak; sisters-in-law, Olga Boszak and Gisella Hicke; brothers-in-law, George Bararuk and John Hicke; son-in-law, Fred Stushnoff; nephew, Albert Hicke; and great-niece, Glenda Hall. Stephanie is survived by her daughters: Leona (Iner) Scherbatiuk of Wadena, and Gloria Stushnoff of Melfort; sons, Edward Radwanski of Gambia, West Africa and Michael (Darlene) Radwanski of Winnipeg; sister, Lil Bararuk; sisters-in-law, Mary Boszak and Myrtle Lojek; as well as 10 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. Stephanie moved to Spring Valley, SK from the Ukraine in 1929 with her mother and brothers Bill and Carl, where they joined their father Cornel. She always seemed happiest when surrounded by people and feeding them. Her cabbage rolls, perogies and pies were legendary and were often purchased by friends and neighbors. She worked hard all her life – taking care of family and friends and providing room and board for many of the working men in Moose Jaw. She always took pride in her housekeeping and her gardening, often getting the kids to help out. Stephanie was a member of St. Vladimir’s Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Moose Jaw, a member of St. Olha’s Womens Association and served as president of St. Olha’s WA for many years. The family would like to thank the staff of Extendicare Moose Jaw for the kind care of Stephanie over the last five years.
May your memory be eternal
