To Walter and family, Your sisters Natalia, Mary, and your parents were friends of my parents, Onufrey and Eudocia Kit for many years. The passing of your sister ends the connection to the 'pioneer' Ukrainian community that was an integral part of Niagara Falls in the 50's, 60's, 70's, and 80's. It was at that time that our Ukrainian Orthodox church was built and with the assistance of the Hladyniuk family along with others, including my parents and the Pohranychny's, the Ukrainian Orthodox presence was known throughout Ontario. Unfortunately, the pioneers have passed and not been replaced, due to mixed marriages, movement of their children such as yourself and my sister, Luba to other parts of the province, or apathy on the part of the Ukrainians who have arrived in the past 20 years. However, your sister continued to be part of St. Peter and Paul Ukrainian Orthodox Church as much as she could due to her health issues and for that, Natalia should be recognized for doing her best to continue both the existence of the Ukrainian Orthodox faith and its history in the Niagara area. Luba, I and our families offer our sincerest condolences on the passing of your sister, Natalia. Vechna Pamyat.

I was deeply saddened to hear the news of Natalia's passing. I met Natalia several years ago when she became part of the library's visiting volunteer program. Our monthly visits and book deliveries were always a happy occasion. She would meet me at the door with a cheery "good morning" and we would spend the next hour chatting about all the books that she had read the previous month or the books that she was hoping to read in the coming months. I believe the highlight of her weekend was reading the Toronto Star Book Section and then making up her "books-to-read" list that I would take back to the library with me. I will miss our visits and I will look fondly back on the time we spent together.
