Dorcas Bilokreli

November 25, 1928 ~ February 14, 2022 (age 93)


Evelyn Dorcas (Payne) Bilokreli was born to George & Anna (Landine) Payne on Nov. 25th, 1928 on the family farm near Springside and passed away peacefully on Monday, Feb. 14th at the Yorkton District Nursing Home.  She was predeceased by her husband Walter, son Douglas, and grandson Jason as well as siblings Willard, Lorraine, Ethel, Jimmy.  She's survived by Alan, Mabel & Stewart. 

Dorcas married Walter Bilokreli on March 28th, 1949.  They had 5 children.  Douglas (Violet), Harold (Rosanna) Lorlee (Ken), Cheryl (Ronald), Sandra as well as many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. 

Dorcas attended Clear Creek School and she loved the farm, animals and nature.  With the sudden death of their father, she and her brother Willard left school and took over doing the farm chores.  Her favourite was working with their team of horses.

Dorcas went to Fort San in the Qu’appelle Valley to take her training to become a Nurse's Assistant.  Once she completed her training, she then worked at the Theodore Hospital.

She lived a full life and there was never a dull moment.  Always attending activities that her kids (or her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren) were involved in.

Mom was very talented.  She enjoyed knitting, sewing, crocheting, oil painting, ceramics, gardening, skating, curling but most of all dancing, especially in her later years.  Lastly, she loved playing cards and was a master at beating us all (or kicking our butts) in Skip-Bo!

In her later years, she enjoyed traveling with her sisters and cousin.  They explored England, Australia, Yukon, Niagara Falls, multiple places in the United States as well as many more!

Thanks to the Yorkton District Nursing Home and staff for their care and also to Christie's Funeral Home for their guidance and support.

A private memorial service will take place on February 19, 2022 from Christie's Funeral Home and Crematorium with Shelly Morris officiating. Interment to follow in the Theodore Town Cemetery.
