It is with heavy hearts and sadness that we announce the passing of Darka Irena Nazarko in her 69th year.


Loving daughter of Olga Nazarko (Predeceased) and Bohdan Nazarko (Predeceased), sister to Sophie Warrington (James), fun loving Aunt to Robert Warrington (Dianne) and Laura Klippel (Zachariah) and to their children Ryan & Adam Warrington and Julian & Stella Klippel.

Fondly remembered by family Roxanne Makela (Mark), Lara and Elizabeth Makela, Orest Shiposh and close friends Maria Markham-Hernandez, Elsie Underwood-Naraine and Sandi Mosca.


Darka was full of life in her early years, travelling the world, sailing the Caribbean, and collecting seashells from every stop along the way. Pictures and memories from years gone by adorned her walls, as later in life, she chose to stay at home and care for her elderly parents.

In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to the Salvation Army Street Youth Services of Toronto. Transform Lives Today! (

Remembering Darka from young adults at Queensway when we pastored there. Her optimism and sparkle will never be forgotten. Praying that peace and comfort will be with her family and all who knew her.

My fun loving Aunt was such a bright beacon of light for so much of her early years, people were just drawn to her outgoing personality and carefree attitude. That’s the Darka we will remember always. RIP Darka Parka 🥰 🙏
