Luba was predeceased in life by her loving husband George; parents Peter and Pauline Memka; and brother Wally.
Born Luba Elizabeth Memka in 1938 in Winnipeg, she enjoyed participating in school athletic events particularly track and field as a child. After she married George in 1959, his job took them to Steinbach where they raised their daughters. Luba and George enjoyed taking the family on trips and to the cottage at Falcon Lake. They were happily married for 34 years until George’s passing in 1993. After retirement from Child and Family Services of Eastern Manitoba, she moved to East St. Paul in the Country Villa Estates where she lived for 20 years.
Luba enjoyed many interests and hobbies throughout her life including curling, gardening, travelling, cooking family dinners, taking her beloved Paton for walks, and visiting with family, friends and neighbors.
A celebration of Luba’s life will be held on Sunday, September 8, 2019 at 2:00 p.m., upstairs at the East St. Paul Community Club which is located within East St Paul Arena, 266 Hoddinott Road, Birds Hill. A private family interment will be held at Transcona Cemetery.
