Attend a Service In Memory of Sophia Stefaniuk

Our good friend and fellow social club member, Sophia Stefaniuk, passed on Dec 21, 2013. Many thanks to Liz for letting us know of her passing.  

I will post the following note to the online guest book... 

Sophia joined the North Shore Social Club in the year it was formed (2008) and has attended many events over the past 5 years.  She especially loved to come to the potluck dinners - in fact I don't think she missed a single one! She would often come on the bus carrying her casserole all wrapped up in towels and ready to share.  She was a very genuine person who was full of energy and loved good conversations and good wine.  She will be very much missed by our group.  

Here is a picture of Sophia at our going away party for Lisa.  Sophia is seated on the right in the front row and she is wearing a lovely bright yellow jacket.  She was always smartly dressed and loved to wear unique jewelry to complement her ensembles. With her hair smartly done - she had a friendly air of sophistication. 

Here is a another picture of Sophia that was posted by her family on the guest book for her obituary.  She is standing with her two grandchildren in this photo. 

If you remember Sophia and wish to pay your respects by attending the memorial service, please take note of the date and time posted here for the event.  Or, if you wish to drop off a card or note to be given to the family here is the address of the church. 

Unfortunately Paul and I will be unable to attend the service as I am now living on Vancouver Island and Paul is away visiting his family in Toronto. 

I do hope that some of our members will be able to represent our group. 

Saturday, January 04, 11:00 am.
