It is with great sadness that the family of Sophia Mahyr, formerly of Agassiz and Chilliwack, and more currently of Willow Manor, Maple Ridge, announce her peaceful passing on January 11, 2006 at the age of 90 years. Sophia Mahyr was born June 17, 1915 in the Ukraine. She immigrated to Canada in the late 1920’s and married Steve Mahyr who became her husband of 71 years. Sophia is survived by five children Eve, Joyce (Norm), Arlene (Boyce), John (Arden) and Rose
(Patrick). She leaves behind a very loving extended family including 12 grandchildren and many great
grandchildren. Sophia was the matriarch and centre of her family and will be missed by all including many friends. Many thanks to the staff and friends at Willow Manor for their kind and generous spirits. They brought much joy to Sophia’s life. Funeral service was held on Tuesday January 17, 2006 at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Maple Ridge at 11:00 am with tea service to follow. Interment followed the same day at 1:30 pm at Little Mountain Cemetery in Chilliwack. We thank all who loved her who joined us in celebrating her life.
