The family of the late Edith Bilokreli age 94 of Yorkton sadly announce her passing on March 1, 2022 at the Yorkton Regional Health Centre, Yorkton SK.
Edith Bilokreli passed away in Yorkton, Saskatchewan on March 1, 2022 at the age of 94 years old. The following is a description of her life in her own words.
I was born July 11, 1927 in Yorkton and attended school there. I attended Sacred Heart School until I was twelve, then Burke School and finished off at Yorkton Collegiate. After high school I attended Yorkton Business College. After graduation I worked for the Veteran’s Land Act for the Federal Government for five years.
I loved skating, curling, golfing, sewing, knitting and ceramics.
On October 8, 1951 I married Mike Bilokreli. Mike worked as a brakeman and then a conductor for the Canadian Pacific Railway. We made our home in Wynyard.
Mike and I travelled east together to Montreal, New York and the west coast as well. Our favourite vacation spot was our cabin at Flin Flon.
When Mike retired in 1979, we returned to Yorkton where I became the babysitter for my niece Cindy Sharpe.
I am most proud of my beautiful parents.
Mike passed away in 2006 and I moved into the Bentley Retirement Home.
It’s been a good, respectful life.
A beloved daughter, sister, wife and aunt, she is predeceased by her parents Steve and Ann Sharpe, husband Mike Bilokreli, brothers Jack (Charlotte) Sharpe, Henry Sharpe, and sister Eleanor (Gordon) Davidson. She is survived and missed by her brother Barry (Dale) Sharpe, sister-in-law Iris Sharpe, and many nieces, nephews and grand nieces and nephews.
Graveside burial service is planned for later in spring 2022.
Thank you to Aspen Bluff nursing home and Yorkton Hospital for the care Edith received in the final years of her life.
