Clarence Yanosik
1926 ~ 2015
It is with such profound sadness that the family of The Honourable Justice Clarence George Yanosik announce his passing on Saturday, January 10, 2015, at the age of 88 years. He was the beloved husband and best friend of the late Cecily G. Yanosik, his wife of 57 years. Clarence will be very deeply missed by his family; a sister Florence (John) Klem of Edmonton, and children, Robert (Irina) Yanosik of Airdrie, Larry (Lisa) Yanosik of California, Laurie (Craig) McClelland of Three Hills, and youngest son Tim Yanosik of Lethbridge. He is also survived by three grandchildren; Glen Yanosik, Kyle Yanosik, Jessica (Karl) Erickson, and a step-grandchild, Lisa (Ryan) Claxton. He was predeceased by a sister, Donna, in 1949. Dad was born in Lethbridge on April 20, 1926. He was raised, grew up, and was schooled, and for the most part, resided and worked in Lethbridge. In late 1943, Dad joined the RCNVR and remained in active duty and service until late 1945. Enrolling at UBC in 1947, Dad graduated with both a Bachelor of Arts Degree, as well as a Bachelor of Laws Degree. Following graduation, he articled with Moscovich, Moscovich, Spanos, and Matisz, to which in 1956, he became a full and equal partner in the firm. By 1964, my dad decided to form a new partnership with Rice, Prowse, Paterson, and Maclean. This partnership was not to be long lasting because in 1969, Dad was appointed Judge of the District Court of Southern Alberta and a local Judge of the Supreme Court of Alberta. By 1970, he had also been appointed Chairman of the Provincial Advisory Board for the Province of Alberta under the Veteran¹s Land Act. In 1979, he was appointed Justice of the Court of Appeal of Alberta. By 1982, Dad was also appointed a Deputy Judge of the Supreme Court of the Yukon Territory. On his birthday, April 20, 2001, Dad retired from all judicial offices. In May 2007, Dad was inducted into the Lethbridge Sports Hall of Fame as an Athlete and Builder. His dedication and efforts helped to keep baseball alive and well during those post-war years. In his more than 20 years of baseball, Yanosik wore several hats ­ athlete, player, coach, manager and builder, says John Klem, who along with Steve Odney and Yanosik, were dubbed the “Awesome Threesome” of outfielders. “You¹re more than a wonderful Man, you¹re the keeper of memories, the maker of everyday miracles, and the one whose love brightens ordinary days and makes every occasion special” In lieu of flowers, those who wish may make memorial donations in memory of Clarence, to the University of Lethbridge in support of the Honourable Clarence G. Yanosik Scholarship, University Advancement, A735 ­ 4401 University Drive W., Lethbridge, AB, T1K 3M4 or by phone at 403.329.2582. Send condolences at http://www.mbfunerals.com

KOLODZIEJ
ADOLF KOLODZIEJ, beloved husband of the late Kazimiera “Kay” Kolodziej, of Lethbridge, passed away at St. Therese Villa, on Tuesday, January 13th, 2015 at the age of 87 years. He is survived by his children, Elizabeth Kolodziej of Edmonton, Christopher (Grazyna) Kolodziej of Lethbridge and Lilian (Cam) Barton of Calgary. Adolf is also survived by his grand children, Andrea (Michael) Salmon of Lethbridge, Ryan Kolodziej of Montreal, Quebec and Kaitlynn Barton (Tim Weaver) of Calgary, as well as his great-grandson Joshua Salmon of Lethbridge. Left to cherish his memory are his brother Roman (Josia) Kolodziej of Vernon, B.C. and his numerous nieces & nephews. Besides his loving wife Kazimiera, Adolf was predeceased by his parents Stanislaw and Magdalena Kolodziej, brothers Kaz and Karl Kolodziej and his sister Cela Korol. Adolf Kolodziej was born in the village of Holendra, Podhajce district in pre- world war II Poland on June 17, 1927. His child hood was interrupted with the invasion of Poland by Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union in 1939 and subsequent partition of the country by those two nations. He was deported, along with thousands of Poles to the Gulags and slave labor camps of Siberia in 1940. After Nazi Germany invaded the Soviet Union in 1941 the allies persuaded the Soviets to release surviving Poles being held in the Siberian Camps. Adolf made his way with his family to Tehran and from there to British colonial Africa where he completed his primary education. In 1945 he joined the Polish free army under British command and was stationed in Palestine and Egypt until 1947. He was then sent to Great Britain and served with the Polish Resettlement Corps until honorably discharged on emigration to Canada in 1949. On the trip to Canada on the H.M.S. Aquitania he met the love of his life Kazimiera. Once they arrived in Halifax, Adolf went to Lethbridge to work for the P.F.R.A. and Kazia went to Montreal to live with her family. They corresponded by mail for over a year before Adolf proposed that they get married. They were married in 1951 and for over 59 years they had a wonderful life together until Kazia¹s passing in 2010. Adolf worked for the federal government (P.F.R.A.) for 39 years as a draftsman and engineering technician. The P.F.R.A. was responsible for overseeing most of the irrigation development in Southern Alberta. Adolf made a significant contribution to the construction of the St. Mary¹s dam and irrigation project, Waterton dam, Carsland dam, Bassano Irrigation project as well as numerous smaller projects. Adolf was very proud of his Polish heritage. In the early 1950¹s together with a small number of colleagues from his native Poland he became one the founding fathers of the Canadian Polish Association of Lethbridge. He served as president and vice president as well as other executive positions in that organization. He was an active member for over fifty years before his failing health forced him to retire from the association. One of the proudest days of his life was receiving the Siberian Cross from the Government of Poland. It was presented to him by the Polish Consul General in 2006 acknowledging his Siberian experience and the sacrifices he was forced to make during the war. He was very connected to his heritage but even more so to his new adopted country, Canada. He never let us forget that we live in the best country in the world. Adolf loved his family more than anything and he was especially proud of his grandchildren, Andrea, Ryan and Katie. He was an avid curler and bridge player and loved to read. Woodworking was a hobby he enjoyed very much. His famous lawn chairs were desired items by both friends and relatives. He was also a member of the Knights of Columbus for many years. He and Kasia also loved to travel to destinations that included Great Britain, New Zealand, Australia, continental Europe, Poland, Mexico, the continental U.S. but especially Hawaii. We will never forget those memorable family car trips in Canada and the U.S. Adolf worked hard and made a great life for his family. A wonderful husband, father, grandfather and “Dziadzius”, respected by his peers and loved by his family, Dad will be missed but never forgotten. In Memory of Adolf and in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Society – #402-740 4th Avenue South, Lethbridge, Alberta, T1J 0P1. In keeping with Adolf’s wishes, a Private Family Service & Interment will take place at a later date.

We will miss everything about him particularly his strength, but know he is in the company of many fabulous family and friends especially his parents Ivory and Evelyn, Uncle Billy, brothers and best friends Donnie (2004), Brad (2013) and his son Russ (December 14 2014).
