ObituaryDaria Temnyk April 28, 1912 – March 26, 2017 We sadly announce the passing of Daria Temnyk. Daria was born in Kultchyczi, Ukraine, the second daughter of Reverend Mychaylo and Antonina Horodyskyj. In 1931, she obtained a Teaching Diploma, an exceptional accomplishment for the time. In 1943, she married Julian Temnyk. Her world was shattered by the onset of the Second World War, when she was forced to flee her homeland of Ukraine. In 1952, they immigrated from England to Canada with their two daughters, Oksana and Chrystyna, and settled in Toronto. Daria’s memory will live forever in the hearts of her surviving children Oksana Shabotynsky and Chrystyna Kowalsky. Babtsia will be missed dearly by her beloved grandchildren: Markian, Melanie, Andrij, Tatania, Eugene, Anna, and Vera, and great-grandchildren Oliver, William and Leila. Her surviving sister Olga Zachary and family, along with relatives in Ukraine, will also remember her fondly. Daria was an exemplary community worker. She worked passionately as a member of the Ukrainian Canadian Women’s Committee (Toronto Branch) and as a member of the Ukrainian Catholic Women’s League of Canada (St. Josaphat’s Cathedral). Her outstanding dedication to both organizations was recognized by the Ontario Ministry of Multiculturalism. Daria was a highly active researcher and archivist. She wrote the text for the 50th Anniversary Video of the Ukrainian Canadian Women’s Committee (Toronto Branch) and also the 50th Anniversary of the Ukrainian Catholic Women’s League (Toronto Eparchy). She frequently contributed to both print and radio. Her noteworthy contributions to the Ukrainian community were recognized in 2012, on her 100th birthday, when the Ukrainian Canadian Women’s Committee presented her with a collection of her writings, articles, and speeches. She leaves a lasting legacy of dedication, mentorship, and love of the Ukrainian church, community, and family. The family thanks the caring staff of the Ukrainian Canadian Care Centre and Dr. Petro Jacyk for his many years of care and support.
