January 3, 1933 – December 6, 2021
On December 6, 2021, Catherine passed away peacefully joining her loving husband Deacon Julius Reznik in Heaven. Predeceased by son Michael. Survived by her sons Tony, George and daughters Catherine, Julianna, grandchildren, and great grandchildren who will miss her dearly. And her special daughter Angele.
Catherine and Julius served the people of St. Joseph’s Parish in Stony Mountain and people of the Interlake for 28 years, until 2007 when they retired to Winnipeg. In the 1990s, Catherine and Julius became Oblates of St. Benedict’s Monastery where they continued together practicing their ministries. Just days before her passing Mom was making sandwich’s for the poor.
Mom/Baba was born and raised in Stony Mountain and briefly moved to Winnipeg to live with the Sisters of Service Convent to become a nun. There she met the love of her life Julius, together they moved back to Stony Mountain, built a new home and raised five children. As well as a working Mom (the post office lady) which she loved dearly, she often said she could watch the community grow. Mom was very active in St. Joseph’s Parish, CWL and ran the Catechism program. Mom dearly loved all her friends she made in many groups she was involved with or member of including Touch Therapy Group, Shared Faith Group and Bible Study Group, to name a few.
Mom and Dad travelled in the RV to Banff for 25 straight years, they loved the mountains. Everywhere they went she touched everyone’s soul, and made many lifelong friends and contacts. Mom is a true angel who will be missed dearly. She was a generous person and a firm believer in God. She always saw the good in everyone and dropped what she was doing on a moment’s notice for anybody in need.
Mom was a kind, generous, loving person with a gentle and caring way about her. She is now reunited with her true love Julius.
Rest in peace to a wonderful Mom, Baba, and Beauty who always gave so much to her family and friends.
