Obituary of Tillie Medwid

November 27, 1934 – July 1, 2024


Tillie Medwid of Calgary, AB, passed away on Monday, July 1, 2024, at the age of 89 years; surrounded by her loving family.


Tillie was born in a rural Ukrainian community in Manitoba. She grew up with ten other siblings on a farm, all sharing their parents attention. Tillie was a loving and caring woman who always had time for her grandchildren. Working in retail for most of her life, she looked forward to retirement. Meeting wonderful friends along the way and going on adventures with them in the city and beyond. She loved camping with her family and sitting by the fire. Over family dinners, she would tell stories of when she was younger, always making everyone laugh.


Tillie is survived by her son Dan (Tracy), daughter Bev (Dwayne), seven grandchildren, Jason, Michelle, Jarred, Martin, Brad, Rod, and Andrea; and nine great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her son Brian in 2000.


She is also survived by her younger brother Steve (Korchak) residing in Manitoba. Tillie will be missed by her nieces and nephews in British Columbia, Alberta, and Manitoba and their extended families.


In keeping with her wishes, a private family Celebration of Tillie’s Life will be held at a later date.
