GREY
Sadly, we announce the passing of our Father, John Joseph Grey, on Saturday, March 29, 2014.
John was the first child of Frances and William Grey and born in Kursk, Russia on January 14, 1916.
After leaving his early childhood home in Kelme, Lithuania, the family emigrated to Canada in 1926, to
join maternal grandparents Elizabeth and Charles Latuk in Stirling, Alberta. He married Donna June
Walberg in 1939 and settled in Lethbridge with their four children.
John’s main interests were his violin music, hunting, fishing, boating and happy times with the family at
Waterton and Kootenay Lakes. He also played with his band The Melody Boys and several times on CJOC
radio. Music was his expression of love and joy that he shared with family and friends for many years. In
2012, he recorded his first CD with backup by friend Darrell Shirley, of his favourite violin tunes as
his legacy to be enjoyed in the future.
John is survived by three children Sybil (Bernie) Peters, Sandra (Edward) Wood and Bryce (Linda) Grey,
seven grandchildren, Robyn Johnston, Joanne (Pasquale) Mautone, Kevin (Peggy) Wood, Drew (Natasha)
Peters, Terrelle (Luc) Grey, Liz (Ludo) Grey, and Eden (Leigh) Grey, two sisters, Helen Stakenas of

He is predeceased by his lovely wife of 65 years, Donna June Grey in 2004; son John Brian Grey in 2003
and parents Frances & William Grey, brothers Walter and Marvin and sister Madeline “Pat” Finley.
John, a man who lived a long, healthy, independent life is now at peace and resting. Your family will
miss you for a long time.

MARY MALAWSKI
1919 ~ 2014
Mary passed away on March 30, 2014, fiercely independent until the very end. She had emigrated from
Germany with her husband, Stan, and baby daughter in the early 1950’s. Life was hard but surviving the
war in Europe had developed in her a will and inner strength of steel. Even more important was a
staggering religious faith which remained unshakeable. Believing all work useful she would take many
varieties of jobs, despite having a teaching certification from her native Russia. Throughout her life
she had a passion for eye catching clothes, her vegetable garden, her church, and later on, of course,
her grandchildren. They, in turn, were endlessly amused by her storytelling presented in a thick Russian
accent accompanied by appropriate facial expressions. Never did she forget a birthday or celebration and
each card would have a Kit Kat tucked in it.
She will always be in the hearts of Anna, Ted and Alexandra, Catherine, Matthew and Gregory, and a slight
whisper in the memory of Madelyn.
Many thanks to Lena, Ruth, Elaine and Margaret for their support over the years and thank you to all the
compassionate staff at the Chinook Regional Hospital.
A Funeral Service will be celebrated at 10:00 am on Thursday, April 3, 2014 at ASSUMPTION OF THE HOLY
VIRGIN RUSSIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH, 907 – 9th Avenue North, Lethbridge with Father Antonie Ciobanu,
celebrant. An interment will take place at Mountain View Cemetery.
