Gordon Salahub
Mr. Gordon Salahub, after a valiant four year battle with cancer, passed away on Monday November 6, 2000 at Yorkton in the loving presence of his family. He was 59 years of age. Gordon was a warm, gentle and sincere man who touched the lives of many people. A loving and caring father and grandfather, Gord's greatest joy was to be surrounded by his family. He knew how to be a friend by openly expressing his empathy and compassion, and lightened many moments with his quirky sense of humor. He was respected in the community and the insurance industry as a fair and honest man. Being a thorough and dedicated worker, every job he did was completed well.
Gordon was born on June 6, 1941 to George and Ann (nee Oshmak) Salahub in the Calder district of Saskatchewan. He received his education at Two Creek School, spent a brief time at Kamsack Victoria School, and also attended Yorkton Collegiate Institute. After receiving his journeyman autobody certificate he held autobody jobs at Korb Motors and Bast Motors in Yorkton and Percival Mercury in Regina. He was then recruited by SGI as a claims adjuster in 1965 and it was at SGI in Regina that he met his wife Lorna Kangas. They married in 1966. He was a general claims adjuster with SGI for over nineteen years in both Regina and Yorkton. In 1984, he went into partnership with Bymak & Associates, an independent adjusting and appraisal firm in Yorkton. In 1996 he became the sole owner and remained an independent insurance adjuster until his passing.
Gordon was a member of the Insurance Institute of Canada, the Saskatchewan Association of Insurance Adjusters, the Canadian Independent Adjusters Association, the International Order of the Blue Goose, and was a loyal member of a local support group. Gordon enjoyed fishing, history, woodworking and carpentry, having renovated two houses on his own. He was interested in his family's history and it was important to him to stay in touch with all his family and friends.
Gordon was predeceased by his father George in 1962 and he is survived by his beloved wife Lorna (nee Kangas) of Yorkton; his five children: Scot Jackson of B.C., Brett and his wife Sari and their daughter Adelina of Toronto, ON, Jeffrey and his wife Marja-Leena and their children Nestor, Nicolai, Charlotte, Angelica and William of White City, SK, Jennifer of Saskatoon and Sara of Calgary; his mother Ann Salahub of Yorkton; a sister Phyllis Conger; his aunt Stella Hygard; as well as his nieces, nephews, relatives and numerous friends.

Interment followed in the Garden of St. Matthew in the Yorkton Memorial Gardens with Cory Conger, Kirby Conger, Tim Hygard, Alfred Salahub, Randy Kangas and Bernie Stadnyk serving as the casketbearers.

Stephanie Sametz
Stephanie Magdalene Sametz, widow of John James Sametz of Ituna, passed away peacefully at the age of 86 following a brief illness in Ituna, Saskatchewan, on January 6, 2001. Her family was at her side. Stephanie was born on Oct. 4, 1914 to Joseph and Maria Cymbalisty in the Buchanan, SK district. She attended school in Buchanan for grades 1 to 11 before completing her high school education at Bedford Road Collegiate in Saskatoon. Following high school she graduated from a commercial business course and was employed as a secretary and bookkeeper in a department store in Kamsack, SK. In 1942 she married John Sametz and began working with him in their drugstore in Buchanan. Sons John and Gerry were born in 1945 and 1948 respectively. In 1949 the family moved to Ituna where they operated Sametz Pharmacy. Rodney was born in 1952. Stephanie still managed to work full time in the store while raising her family. After the business was sold to son John in 1977, Stephanie continued to work in the store. In 1986 her husband John passed away. Stephanie could be seen working in the drugstore right up until the time she was hospitalized with her illness. In addition to having a strong work ethic, one of the main things that kept Stephanie working was the fact that by continuing to work in the store she was able to keep socializing with people. She truly was a "people person" who could strike up a friendly conversation with anyone. Stephanie was a lifetime member of the Ituna Ladies Hospital Auxiliary and the Ituna Ukrainian Orthodox Ladies Association. She also served in organizational capacities for curling in Ituna and was an active member of the Ituna Social Club. Curling was Stephanie's favourite sport and she played it as long as her health permitted. The camaraderie in curling was just as important to Stephanie as the game itself and it allowed her to develop many good and lasting friendships. She loved to travel and she saw many places in North America and abroad. Stephanie liked playing cards and gardening and in her later years enjoyed activities at the Ituna Social Club. The most important thing to Stephanie was her family. She loved them dearly, and all her relatives, especially her grandchildren, dearly loved her. "Baba" had a very special bond with her five grandchildren who will forever cherish her memory.
Stephanie was predeceased by her father in 1963 and her mother in 1970, as well as her sister Caroline Syrnyk in 1971, brother John Cymbalisty in 1972, son Rodney Sametz in 1977, and brother Joe Cymbalisty in 1988.
