Mr. Paul Yurkiw of Yorkton passed away on Sunday, February 10, 2002 at the Anderson Lodge. He was 96 years of age. Paul was the 9th of the 12 Yurkiw children born to Gabriel and Barbara Yurkiw. He grew up on the Yurkiw homestead where his parents settled. He attended Mazeppa school, completing Grade 4 before he had to quit school to work on the family farm. In 1929 he met Lena Yurkowski. They were married on November 1, 1931 and continued to live on the family farm. They were blessed with the birth of four daughters: Stella, Lorna, Florence and Annette. During their years on the family farm, Paul and Lena raised turkeys to supplement their income. Paul also had a cream collection route for the Canora Co-op. During this time, Paul was chairman of the Mazeppa School Board. In 1949 Paul and Lena sold the farm and purchased a house and garage in Mikado. As well as operating the garage, they went into the business of raising turkeys and for many years sold eggs to hatcheries and turkeys for evisceration at the Yorkton Co-op. In 1955 they sold the garage and Paul began driving the school bus from Mikado to Canora. He drove this bus for 10 years, at the same time working at Canora Beverages as the plant superintendent. A special bond was formed with the children along his school bus route as he took a personal interest in each child and always remembered special things about each and every one. Paul's loving wife Lena became ill in the late fifties and in 1965 Paul and Lena decided to sell their Mikado home and built a home in Yorkton. For approximately six years after moving to Yorkton, Paul worked for the Yorkton Co-op turkey barns and was able to put his knowledge and experience in raising turkeys to good use. In 1970 he retired, but still kept busy helping out on his oldest daughter's (Stella's) farm. It was here that he began the hobby of beekeeping. Many of his grandchildren accompanied him while he worked on his hives and can describe for you today the many duties required to successfully raise bees. Paul's annual fall honey-extracting days were enjoyed by his children, grandchildren, neighbours and friends who stood around his special barrel while he would spin the honey out of the bee frames. Paul also made many beeswax candles, which were used by children in the Catholic schools in Yorkton for decorating pysanky. One terrific memory shared by all his daughters is the making of home made root beer and the sound of bottles of root beer exploding in the root cellar startled no one. The making of root beer is a memory that can also be shared by the grandchildren as both Gida and Baba were famous in their grandchildren's minds for the comradeship formed while making root beer and sharing this delightful treat at all the special family gatherings. No family gathering was complete without a lively card game of King Pedro with Paul's sons-in-law. He remains undefeated. Lena passed away on February 3, 1981 after a lengthy illness and Paul continued to live in their home, spending many hours tending to the flowers and garden that she had loved so dearly. Paul proudly displayed his colorful houseplants in his front window. In his later years he took on the art of cooking and baking. Gida's carrot cakes were well known and appreciated by family and friends. Paul became ill in October, 2001 and in November he became a resident of Anderson Lodge where he resided until his passing.
Paul leaves to cherish his memory daughters Lorna (Orest) Sackney, Florence (Paul) Lukash and Annette (Stanley) Popowich; his grandchildren: Lenard (Sandy) Krepakevich, Alan Krepakevich, Denise Krepakevich, Joanne Krepakevich, Kevin Krepakevich, Nolan Sackney, Erin Sackney, Lisa Lukash, Darren Lukash, Jason (Verena) Popowich and Marla Popowich; great-grandchildren: Chelsey Krepakevich, Dustin Krepakevich, Hannah Efford and Kailee Popowich; numerous nieces and nephews.
