In memory of
Bernice Ewachow October 12, 1943 - January 10, 2017 After a courageous battle with ALS, Bernice Loreen Ewachow entered into restful peace on Tuesday, January 10, 2017 at the age of 73. Bernice is the second daughter of Walter and Mary Pankevich, born on October 12, 1942 in Canora, SK. She grew up in the Tadmore area. Bernice married Eugene Ewachow on October 20, 1962. Bernice and Eugene began their life together on a farm near Hyas, SK, and began to raise their family of 3 children. Bernice went to University when Eugene became ill with heart disease. With 3 small children, she completed her degree in Education and began teaching in Sturgis, SK. When Eugene retired from farming in 1979, Bernice accepted a teaching position in Yorkton, SK. Bernice and Eugene enjoyed lake life, where they taught their children (and many of their children's friends) to water ski. They built a cabin at Crystal Lake. At the age of 46, Eugene passed away and Bernice was a widow at the age of 41. She continued to live and teach in Yorkton for the next decade, then retired from full time teaching and relocated to Calgary. Bernice loved Calgary. It became her home. She was a substitute teacher at the Catholic Schools in Calgary right up until her onset of ALS at the age of 70. Bernice had a true love for enjoying life to the fullest. Bernice's passions included dancing, travelling, downhill and cross country skiing, spending time with her friends and family. Bernice is survived by her 3 children, Cheryle (Bernard), Dale (Karen), and Barbara (Rick); 5 grandchildren Dale (Cayla), Jessalyn (Kevin), Austin (Caitlyn), Colin, and Myalynn; and great-grandson Kaison. Bernice is also survived by her sister Sylvia Harrison and numerous extended family. Bernice will be greatly missed by many dear friends.
