Anastasia (Nancy) Smutylo (Onyschuk)

It is with great sadness that we tell you of the passing of our Mom, Nancy Smutylo. She was born in Zalese, Poland (now part of the Ukraine) on March 8, 1927. She immigrated to Canada with her family just before WWII. The family settled in the Edmonton, Alta area. Nancy and her husband John moved to B.C. in 1955, living in the Lower Mainland. They had four children. Nancy loved music. She loved to sing and was a member of many church choirs. In South Surrey she sang in the White Rock Baptist Church choir and was also a member of the Kent Street choir.

In March 2014 she was diagnosed with malignant melanoma and passed away, peacefully, on December 12, 2014 at Laurel House Hospice in Surrey, B.C. Her husband, John, predeceased her in 1990. Nancy is survived by her children Diane, Wayne (Margaret), Dale (Marlene) and Sharon (Larry). She was blessed with six grandchildren and at the time of her passing five great grandchildren, the sixth joining our family December 26, 2014. A community celebration of Nancy’s life will be held on Tuesday, March 17, 2015 at 1:30 pm, at White Rock Baptist Church, 1657 140 St, South Surrey. We ask that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Laurel House Hospice in Surrey or the local Hospice Society in your community.
