OBITUARY

Julia Scott

February 15, 1929April 1, 2021

Julia Scott (nee Zbitnew) was born February 15, 1929, on a farm in the Buchanan, Saskatchewan area. She passed away on April 1, 2021 due to complications from COPD and heart disease. Julia was the 7th child of ten – born to Mariya and Spiroden Zbitnew.

She was predeceased by her husband William; her 9 siblings and their spouses; her husband’s 11 siblings and most of their spouses; her parents and parents in law and some nieces and nephews.

Julia is survived by her daughter Cindy and husband Eldon Perley, grandson Robert Jenkins and great-granddaughter Paisley Jenkins; granddaughter Courtney and husband Daniel Ell. She is also survived by her son Robert, partner Vivian Gassner; granddaughter Nicole and husband Brody Stefan and great-granddaughter Tinsley Stefan and is survived by her son Terry Scott. Julia is also survived by 2 sisters-in-law in Grenfell and numerous nieces, nephews and grand-nieces and nephews.

Mom was a strong little Ukrainian woman. She was a fabulous cook, seamstress, knitter and crochet expert. She loved her children and adored her grandchildren and great-granddaughters. She was a stay-at-home mom and almost every niece and nephew benefited from having her live right across the street from the elementary school in Grenfell. She had a great network of friends over the years that she visited and had coffee with. Those that are still around will surely miss her. Mom lived a long life. 92 trips around the sun, is a great feat that many do not get the chance to experience. She was the last Zbitnew of her generation. No matter what life threw at her, she was tough and never complained no matter how ill she was and how much pain she was in. Mom is no longer suffering and is now reunited with her entire family and dad.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions a private service for immediate family was held in the Chapel of Tubman Funeral Home, Wolseley, SK on Saturday, April 10, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. with Pastor Barry Bruce officiating. Interment followed in the Grenfell Cemetery. Family and friends are invited to watch a livestreaming of the funeral with the link that will be posted below.

Dear Julie's Family,

Julie was a good friend to my Mom, Beth McDonald. They shared many conversations while hanging out clothes or working in their gardens. They also had coffee breaks with cookies and Mom must have enjoyed the cookies as she wrote two of Julie's recipes in her Co-op cookbook! It has been many years since I last saw Julie but I can still hear her wonderful laugh. Enjoy the memories you have of your Mom...she was a special lady. My Sincere Sympathy,
Marlene McDonald/Rittinger

I saw Julie every Saturday at the start of my hairdressing career. I am so grateful for all of the time I spent with her. She was such a fun spirited lady and a pleasure to know!

I think some of my fondest memories were Sunday’s on the farm where I grew up , Uncle Bill , Aunt Julie & family came out almost every weekend , board games were our entertainment which we played a lot of . Also every fall after we sold our calves at market it was a tradition that Aunt Julie , my mom Elaine , my sister Evelyn & myself went to Yorkton to Christmas shop , we had so many laughs . Aunt Julie was my second mom , I will truly miss her . Dwayne & myself send our deepest condolences to her family & friends .

Heartfelt sympathy in the loss of your mother and grandmother.Julia was a good friend, the best friend anyone fortunate enough to have known her would agree.
She was an expert in advice on sewing ,cooking,animal care, gardening, preservation of food and how to paint your kitchen cupboards!!
She loved a great joke, going for coffee and trips to Yorkton for lunch and a bit of shopping.
She will be thought of lovingly with happy memories.
Sincerely Susan and Larry Johnson and family

My mom Florence Kryski née Samuels, fondly remembers growing up with Julia and her brothers and sisters and being taught by their uncle Bill Zbitnew in the little Memornitz school. She and Julia shared a double desk for most of the time they were in school and did not want to be separated! They shared so many good and sad memories and mom always wondered where her best friend was. Your mom was blessed with family and friends. My mom is also 92 and is living with my family in Regina after dad (Edward Kryski ) passed away in 2012. We have been so blessed to have had the matriarchs of our families with us to share their love and wisdom. Our condolences to you and your family; Twyla Virtue and Flo

Our condolences on the passing of your mom Julie. I knew your mom from church and worked with her many times in the kitchen for special occasions. She was always very willing to bring sandwiches and a slice. May God give you comfort by sharing the many memories you all have.
