Viola Florence Szostak

SZOSTAK, Viola Florence - Passed away peacefully in her sleep, early Tuesday morning, December 13, 2016, at the age of 96. Pre-deceased by her husband, William J. Szostak (1980), Vi was the proud and loving mother to Dr. Jack Szostak (Tel McCormick), Kathy Hysen (Peter Hysen), and Dr. Carolyn Szostak. She was also the loving grandmother to Aran & Eamon Szostak, Rowland Hysen (Andrea Owen) & Gregory Hysen, and recently, the great-grandmother to Carter Owen & Sadie Hysen. Best friends since the 1960's with Norma Ferguson (Montreal), Mary MacKinnon (Vermont), Dorothy Bowen (St. Catherines), Vera Wilson (Ottawa), Cathy Carroll (Ottawa) and others, we are sure. Vi loved being a member of the service sorority Beta Sigma Phi. Vi loved opera, crossword puzzles and bridge. Since moving to London, Vi thoroughly enjoyed going on opera trips with Wilma Hysen, being welcomed and active with the London Newcomers Club, and taking walks in Springbank Park. Vi enjoyed living at Chartwell Riverside Residence after moving out of her apartment. We would like to thank all of the staff at Chelsey Park LTC, with special thanks to Dr. Bigham and the 2nd floor staff, who appreciated Mom's smiles and sense of humour. Cremation has taken place. If desired, memorial gifts to the Chelsey Park Long-term Care Recreation Department, or their fund for gifts for residents who do not have family would be appreciated.13127021
