Obituary for Emilia Marchand

On Monday, June 13, 2011 Mrs. Emilia Marchand of Wainwright, Alberta passed away at the Wainwright Auxiliary Hospital at the age of 94 Years. Emilia is survived by her sons Harvey (Alice) of St. Albert, Edward (Cathy) of Calgary, Dennis of Maple Ridge, B.C., Allan (Robin) of Wainwright, and by her daughters Molly Taylor (Rod Avison) of Calgary, and Sandra (Doug) Haun of Wainwright. She will also be lovingly remembered by her grandchildren Patrick (Deanna), Roger (Renee) and Dale (Kari) Marchand, Deborah (Mike) Marchand-Blondal, Chantelle (John) Mooney, Andrea (Jason) Holowka, Dennis Jr. and Leila Marchand, Nathan and Sheena Taylor, Johnathan, Dustin and Shawn Haun, and step-grandchildren Ian and Matthew Callum; and by her great-grandchildren Abigail, Elijah, Thomas, Julia and Daniella Marchand, Bentley, Madeline, and William Blondal, Gregory, James, Justin and Miranda Mooney, Claire and Emily Holowka, and Mateya Taylor. She will also be fondly remembered by her nephew Wayne Nahorney of Fallis and niece Margaret Nahorney of Edmonton, and by the many members of the extended Marchand family. Emilia was predeceased by her parents Sylvester and Molly Nahorney, by her loving husband Jerry, by her brothers Harry and William Nahorney, and by her daughter-in-law Mary Marchand. Emilia was born in the Hope Valley district north east of Wainwright on March 21, 1917 on a homestead founded by her parents who were immigrants from the Ukraine. At home she learned to speak, read and write Ukrainian. She attended Giles School and later married Jerry Marchand from Fabyan. They settled just north of Wainwright and on their busy farm raised six children. Emilia was always an involved member of the community. She opened her doors to several foster children and to new staff at the Wainwright Hospital who needed a place to live. She was a member of the Farm Women’s Union of Alberta, the Catholic Women’s League, the Wainwright Garden Club, the Sew and So Club, the Old Timer’s Association, and the Wainwright Health Care Ladies Auxiliary. She enjoyed all these activities even as she retired from farm life and moved into a house in town, and then went on to several pleasant years at the Battle River Lodge before declining health led her to the Wainwright Auxiliary Hospital.
