It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of Victoria Martha Dowhaniuk,of Thorhild, AB, on July 31, 2023.  She will be remembered by her loving husband Clarence Dowhaniuk of 66 years, her daughters Valerie MacDonald (Dave Howard) and Charlotte Dowhaniuk (Russell Watts), grandchildren Brandon and Brianna MacDonald and Tayla and Jenna Watts, numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.

Born and raised on a farm in Thorhild, hard work was embedded into Victoria.  She went to the University of Alberta to start her teaching career and then moved to Big Valley with her husband where they resided for 46 years.  Victoria’s grade 2 students were blessed with her enthusiastic teaching skills for 42 years. Upon retirement, Victoria and Clarence moved back to the Dowhaniuk family farm in Thorhild where her love for the outdoors and the country were reconnected. As an avid gardener she created many gorgeous flower and vegetable gardens.  Her love for sports made her qualified to give her coaching opinions and she loved conversing through phone calls and letters to many cherished people. 

Victoria was predeceased by her parents Thomas and Margaret (Bodnar) Wasik, and brothers and sisters Victor (Mae) Wonsik, Lena (Jack) Onyschuk, Jennie (Leo) Iwaskow, Wesley (Helen) Wasik and Eugene Wasik.
