+Vera Pauline Wynnyk
(April 25, 1937 - July 15, 2020)
Vera was born on April 25, 1937 to Ed and Kay Shott of Daysland, Alberta. She attended school in Daysland. Following high school, Vera began her career as a bank teller in the community. In 1961 Vera married Peter Wynnyk and they were blessed with four children. Vera was deeply devoted to her faith, church community, family and friends. These traits carried our family through numerous, and often difficult, life challenges. Mom worked hard at everything she did and her energy was endless. Family was of utmost importance and Vera never hesitated to put the needs of her children above her own. She will be dearly missed by her family and those fortunate to have known her.
Vera and Peter’s home was always open to family and friends. Mom was known for her exceptional cooking and baking and you never left their home without a care package. Her passions included humor, gardening, entertaining and a night (or two) at the casino. Together Mom and Dad owned, rented and maintained numerous properties in Daysland.
Vera had a very peaceful passing on July 15, 2020 at the age of 83.
Left to cherish her memory are her son Maurice (Marla) of Calgary; daughters Cynthia and Crystal of Edmonton; and grandson Brayden. Vera is also survived by her sisters Dolores (Brian) Carter, Connie (Reg) Kastelan, Leona (Ross) Williamson, Lynda (Duncan) Watson and Rita (Rob) Hanchar. She is predeceased by husband Peter; infant daughter Desiree; grandson Skylar; and parents Ed and Kay Shott.
