ObituaryStefania Moskaliuk (nee Trzepizur) October 21, 1927 - August 31, 2016 It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Stefania Moskaliuk at Toronto Western Hospital on August 31, 2016 at the age of 88 after a brief illness. Cherished mother to Nina and Wiktor (Christina Kowalsky) and proud grandmother of Tamara and Daniel. She leaves her brother Zdzislaw in Poland, niece Liza Morchart, nephew Peter Myts and their families, along with extended family in Canada and Poland. She remained independent to her last days. Stefania was born of Polish parents, Josefa and Anthony, in Soldinsen, Germany. The family moved back to Lodz, Poland when she was 6 months old. Stefania was the oldest of five siblings of which three are predeceased. At the age of 15 her mother passed away and Stefania ended up being responsible for her siblings and the family household. Her ambition was to become a teacher, however in 1943 Stefania, her sister Danka, and two of her brothers were taken by the Nazis to work as forced labourers on a farm near Hanover, Germany. When the war ended Stefania and her sister were placed in a Displaced Persons Camp and then in 1947 immigrated to the United Kingdom. However her brothers were repatriated back to Poland, and she was not able to see them again until 1962. Stefania married Adam Moskaliuk in Coventry, England where they raised their two children. In 1967 the family immigrated to Canada and settled in Toronto after a brief stay in London, Ontario. Stefania worked many years as a technician at General Electric until she retired in 1990. In her retirement Stefania immersed herself in her beautiful garden. It was full of creative ideas as she constantly added and changed plant types. Her other interests were also artistic, as she did needlepoint on an open weave canvas as well as embroidery, creating many exquisite wall hangings and embroidery pieces which she shared with family and friends. Stefania liked to travel and was a wonderful cook. Stefania was a kind wonderful person and will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
