It is with great sadness that we lost our loving wife, mom, baba & friend. Mable passed October 15th 2023 surrounded by love & family.
Mable was born August 18th 1941 in Krestova to Bill & Helen Sapriken. She married the love of her life Harry Wasilenkoff December 10th 1960 in Glade.
They were blessed with 3 children and moved from Glade to Shoreacres in 1966 and called that home for the next 57 years. During her life Mable enjoyed caring for her children, grandchildren & great grandchildren.
Until 5 years ago she grew a bountiful garden to harvest/preserve & fill her much admired root cellar.
Mable was always a great hostess… she loved to fuss over company, so much so she usually missed most of their visit. She was especially good at Sunday morning breakfasts and introduced many to her special “hotcakes and tomato juice” combination.
Mable was a lifelong member of the USCC and an active member of the Shoreacres & Brilliant Ladies groups. She loved to crochet, knit and sew… she was a perfectionist and if she found a missed stitch she would undo her project and fix it no matter how close it was to completion.
Left to mourn her is Harry her loving husband of nearly 63 years, sons Bob (Sarah), Gordie (Christine), daughter Lydia (Tim) Streleiff. She will be dearly missed by grandkids Greg, Ashley, Vanya, Nura, Nadya, Harrison, Molly & James… great grandkids Beau, Riley, Cameron, Harvey & Calvin. As well sister Naida (Ed) Masloff, sister in law Gertie Poochachoff, numerous nephews, nieces & cousins.
Mable was predeceased by her sister Vera Chernoff in 2021 that she so dearly missed.
Mable will always be remembered by her family and friends for her love and kindness. She was the light in our hearts and we will forever cherish our memories of her.
We would like to thank Home and Community Care Staff, the Care Staff at Jubilee Manor and Talarico Place for their care and compassion.
All friends are invited to a graveside service to be held at 11am on October 26, 2023 at the Shoreacres Cemetary followed by a luncheon at the Shoreacres Hall in Mable’s honour.
