Ellen Wodyga

May 16, 1925 – May 2, 2016

On May 2, 2016, our beloved mother, Ellen Wodyga, passed away in the East Kootenay Regional Hospital.

She was born in Kimberley, BC to Philip and Nellie Hoskovich, on May 16, 1925. In 1944, she married Angus Wodyga; they had fifty seven years together.

Ellen was a loyal longtime member of Women of the Moose. She had many lifelong friends, who she very much missed after moving to Cranbrook in 1997.

As a mother, she was the best. Her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren were the world to her. She was predeceased by her husband Angus, son Ken, brother Phil (Carolyn) and other beloved family members.

She is survived by her sons Rick and Joe, daughter Dale (Wayne Hopp), grandchildren Michael Wodyga (Michele), Christian Allen, Meaghan Allen, Tamara (Derek) Brissette and children, and great grandchildren Kasey and Lucas Wodyga.

We will love and miss her forever.

A private graveside service will be held at the Kimberley cemetery at 1:00pm, Thursday May 12, followed by a luncheon for friends and family at 2:30pm at the Western Lodge in Kimberley.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Children’s Wish Foundation, 250-1101 Kingston Rd, Pickering, ON
