Osypa Lysak (nee Ryj)

Passed on August 11, 2021

March 19th, 1925 – August 11th, 2021     In the early morning of August 11th, 2021, with her daughters by her side, Osypa Lysak passed on to be with those who await her in Heaven, including her husband Wasyl, parents, and siblings.

Known widely as Baba, Osypa will be dearly missed. Left to cherish her memory are her family: daughters Lydia (Tommy) and Anne (Clarence); grandchildren David (Sherrie), Chrissie (Chris), Michael (Heather), Daniel (Erin), and Andrew (Xiao); and great-grandchildren Nick, Julia, Ben, Sam, Lilia, Ronan, Daschel, and Rosie.

Baba was born in the Ukraine and came to Canada in 1948. She was very proud and honoured to become a Canadian citizen; she loved what her new homeland offered. From humble beginnings, Mom and Dad built a wonderful life for their family.

Baba had a strong faith in God and lived her entire life accordingly. She was a life long member of the Holy Trinity Ukrainian Church and instilled these values to her family. Family was very important to Baba, from the oldest to the youngest. Baba had a big heart, offering endless love and support to her family. She was interested in their careers, education and general well-being. She always had treats for the little ones and “hamburger money” as they became older.

A liturgy was held at Komarno Church on Monday, August 16th 2021. Baba’s final resting place is at Holy Trinity Cemetery beside her beloved Wasyl.

The family wishes to thank Dr. Loudon for his care and the medical staff of Stonewall Hospital for their compassionate care. Thank You to Ken Loehmer for his professional services.
