November 19, 2020 peacefully, of complications from dementia in her 95th year. Born Maria Vasylyshyn in Western Ukraine on October 25, 1926. Mary worked in Austria from 1941 until after the war. She then immigrated to Canada in 1948; she lived in B.C. before moving to Hamilton in 1954. Predeceased by her parents, two brothers and one sister, all in Ukraine. Predeceased by her husband Gregor Partola in 1951, daughter-in-law Kathy Partola (nee Czmuniewicz) in 2006, and husband Gregor Kononchuk in 2009.

Mary had a passion for gardening, growing flowers, and sewing, and loved children, birds and small animals. A BIG THANK YOU goes out to the entire nursing and support staff at Orchard Terrace Care Centre in Stoney Creek, who cared for my mother since 2008.
