BUCHKO, Zita - Obituary Photo-gigapixel-art-scale-2_00x.jpg


(née TRUSH)

July 25, 1929 - January 2, 2023

It is with sadness that we announce the death of Zita Helen Buchko (née Trush) of Winnipeg, Manitoba on January 2, 2023, at the age of 93.

Zita was born on July 25, 1929, to William and Pauline Trush in Winnipeg, the youngest of 12 children.  After Zita graduated from high school, she began working at Frank H. Wylie in the office.

On June 18, 1955, Zita married her soul mate William (Bill) Buchko. Zita and Bill had one daughter Roxane (Ken) Lundgren and two grandchildren Brita and Anna Lundgren.

We would like to thank the homecare workers who worked with Zita for so many years, and the staff at Misericordia Hospital.

Zita was involved in the Catholic Women’s League at Blessed Virgin Mary Ukrainian Catholic Church and her faith was an important part of her life.

Zita was predeceased by her beloved Bill, her parents, and 11 brothers and sisters. She is survived by her daughter Roxane and her granddaughters.

A celebration of life will be held for close family members in the spring.

Zita's family kindly requests that all of her friends and relatives take a few minutes to honour her memory by sharing photos, memories, and stories, using the comment section on this page.
