It is with great sadness we announce Ollie's passing on February 16, 2019 at Seven Oaks General Hospital. Beloved wife of Steve Baljkas; mother of Steven F. and of John Baljkas (Margaret McKinnon); sister of Emil and Natalie Kurdydyk, and of the late Hope, Danny, Mary and Greg Kurdydyk; aunt to Carole, Linda, Dean, Doug, Greg, Brent and Deborah. Predeceased by her beloved parents, George and Anna Kurdydyk.
Ollie had a generous and tenacious spirit, was friends with many and loved greatly her pet corgis. Her life was filled with laughter, a bright wit, a strong will and way too many pastries and baked goods. Ollie attended the University of Winnipeg, worked for the Canadian Government and taught business writing and cake decorating.
In accordance with Ollie's wishes, cremation will take place followed by a private family gathering. In memory of Ollie, donations may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation.
