January 20, 1929 – April 26, 2021
It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Nadia Peniuk in her 92nd year.
Beloved wife of the late Ivan, devoted mother of Danny and Walter, and loving grandmother of seven grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. Dear sister of Catherine and Gregory.
Nadia was born in Ukraine and immigrated to Canada in 1953, settling first in Montreal before moving to Hamilton. Upon moving to Hamilton, Nadia and Ivan became active members of St. Vladimir Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral. Nadia's beautiful soprano voice enhanced the church choir and other ensembles with whom she performed traditional Ukrainian songs. She was an active member of the UWAC Lesia Ukrainka Branch, taking special pride and joy in cultural activities. When failing health eventually prevented her active participation, her church community and her family continued to nurture her love for Ukrainian traditions, especially music. In tribute to her memory, her grandson wrote, "Her kids, her grandkids were her whole life. She was truly the definition of a matriarch". Nadia will be greatly missed, and her song will always remain in our hearts.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Nadia's memory can be made to the St. Vladimir Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral. In light of the COVID-19 restrictions, a private family funeral will be held.
Vichnaya Pamyat! May her memory be eternal!
