On a bright and beautiful winter afternoon, January 7, 2021, The Lord called our beloved Wanda Helen Visneski (nee Wrubel) Home, in her 90th year. She passed peacefully with her husband and daughter at her side. Wanda was born in Oshawa, Ontario on August 18, 1931 to parents Michaelina and Karel Wrubel. A devout Catholic her entire life, Wanda met her best friend and future husband, Joseph Visneski, at a neighbourhood dance. Together, they shared the Sacrament of Marriage on September 19, 1953. Wanda and Joseph were blessed with two children; Robert Joseph Visneski (deceased) (Susan), and Janet Mary Klicnik (Vlad). They recently celebrated their sixty-seventh wedding anniversary. Wanda was passionate about cooking and baking, painting, gardening, traveling, and spending time with her five grandchildren: Brian Visneski (deceased), Joey Visneski (Amanda), Paul Klicnik (Irmina), Michelle Visneski (Shaun), Emily Urie (George), and her ten great-grandchildren. Wanda is also lovingly remembered by her brother, Bruno Wrubel (Rita), sister-in-law Gertrude Godin, nieces and nephews, extended family, and lifelong friends. Our compassionate, kind, loving, and gentle Wanda is being honoured in a private Visitation, and Service at Oshawa Funeral Home, attended only by immediate family members. Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, a celebration of Wanda’s beautiful life and legacy left behind will take place at a future date. Donations can be made to Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation, or Diabetes Canada.

Janet and Vlad: All our thoughts are with you. Your love and support helped your mom enjoy her final days and I am sure she knew you were there with her even as she said her final goodbyes! We are so sorry for your loss but she will always be here in your memories, and in your grandchildren. As I watched the video, I could see your mom in Paul’s smile. All our love and thoughts are with you and all your family.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss Joe. I know I haven’t seen you and Wanda too much the last few years, but I always enjoyed our yearly chats. You and Wanda always made me feel so welcome and I truly appreciate your friendship over the years. She will be greatly missed. My prayers are with you and your family now, god bless!

Our thoughts and prayers are with you Mr. Visneski and family. I remember Mrs. Visneski from my childhood as my mother grew up with Wanda on Olive Avenue and my parents both knew both Joe and Wanda. They also went to the same polish hall for dances. My parents were Helen & Karl Faruga. I am one of the twins Carol Krupicz (faruga). It is a difficult time and again our thoughts and prayers are with all the family.
