With great sadness we announce the passing of Katie Suchy (Sydor) at the age of 95, born on January 1, 1928 on her parents’ farm in Mundare, Alberta.

She was predeceased by her husband, John; daughter, Gloria; parents, Mary and Alex and most siblings.

Katie is survived by her son, Randy (Wendy); granddaughter, Karie (Pierce); grandsons, Curtis (Tara) Suchy and Trevor Suchy; great-grandchildren, Audrey and Griffin (Pierce), James and John, Allie and Wyatt (Suchy) and sister, Frances (O’Neil).

In her younger days she enjoyed camping, fishing, and long walks and visiting her sister Annie on the farm where they cooked and baked up a storm! Mom loved to garden perfect tomatoes and plentiful cucumbers and flowers galore! She also loved making dill pickles, pyroghys, cabbage rolls, and doughnuts with her daughter that everyone, including her grandchildren, loved and enjoyed! She also loved listening to old time and modern country music.

Thanks and gratitude to all of the caregivers and staff of Youville Nursing Home in St. Albert for their kindness to everyone and their devotion to caring for Mom.

  1. Baba was resilient!
    I sat at her kitchen table and listened to her tell stories about her life. At that same kitchen table. I watched her flipping perogies in a bowl covering them with butter, laying out freshly fried donuts onto every paperbag covered surface. I listened to Charlie Pride, George Jones and Johnny Cash playing through the radio while Baba and I would flip through the stack of tabloid magazines that resided on her coffee table, next to the TV guide, a bowl of nuts, and her little paring knife (she peeled an apple as a snack every evening). I learned exactly what to do in a kitchen from my baba. I never had to guess how she felt about me. She always told me she loved me and she gave the best hugs. I am forever grateful that my kids not only got to know her, but also now have memories that they will cherish forever. I will continue to share the many things you taught me and they will be passed down through generations with stories of you. May you rest in peace. I love you baba🩷

  2. Thinking of you all in this difficult time. Katie was so very strong and loving and she always had kind words for me and great big hugs. Her garden was always a source of pride. From the flowers that always blumed to the vegetables that found thier way onto the dinner tables at times of family gatherings. I am very thankful for the time i got to spend with Katie and her family. Sending my love to all the family members durring this difficult time. Rest in peace Katie

  3. I’ll miss you forever Baba. Your resilience and love inspires me to keep going every day. Every time I bake, I will think of you and the amazing desserts you would make. I’ll miss your hugs so much. I love you more than words can say. Rest easy ❤️

  4. I don’t know how to put feelings into words Baba. Just know…and I know you do.
    I love you..miss you..
    I hope you have a big enough garden up there to keep busy Baba…I’ll see you again.
