Anne was born on July 8th, 1933 in Parkerview, Sask. She was the oldest of 5 children born to William & Mary Protzak. She was predeceased by her parents William and Mary Protzak, husband William Bobyk, daughter Charlene Bobyk, and sisters Olga Thies and Iris Berezny. Surviving siblings are Orest Protzak, and Sylvia Rashbrook. Anne married William Bobyk on October 2 1949 in Sheho, SK. They were blessed with 8 children.
Some of Anne’s favourite things to do included playing cards, listening to old time Ukrainian music, preparing traditional Ukrainian meals, spending time with her children and grandchildren, and of course going to Bingo. Anne’s wit and humour will forever be remembered. Even in her final weeks, she kept us and the hospital staff smiling and laughing.
She was a kind gentle soul, a loving mother, grand mother, great grandmother, and a good friend. She will be missed dearly.
