I am saddened to hear of Lesia's passing. We worked together at Veterans Affairs Canada many years ago. She was always a kind and happy lady. May your wonderful memories of Lesia comfort you during this sad time.
FOLUSEWYCH, Alexandra “Lesia” (née Cholewinsky) – With deep sadness, we announce Alexandra’s peaceful passing on Ukrainian Christmas, January 7, 2023 surrounded by her loving family at Blanche River Health, Kirkland Lake Site.
Alexandra is survived by her loving life partner, Tom; her sons Andrey (Kelly May) Folusewych and Stephen (Corinne Bouchie) Folusewych; 3 precious grandchildren Kaelen, Kenzie and Ella. She also leaves to mourn her brothers Roman (Mary Lou) Cholewinsky, Terry (Amber) Cholewinsky; her nices and nephews Greg, Cathy, Tommy, Alex and Sara Cholewinsky as well as numerous great nieces and nephews and extended family.
Our Mom enjoyed filling the kitchen with wonderful Ukrainian food, her meat sticks are legendary. After she met Tom, she started cooking Greek food. She was an all star in the kitchen. She loved to share her passion for cooking and baking with her grand daughter, Ella. She also loved to travel, especially to visit and watch Kaelen, and Kenzie play hockey she was a proud Baba to her three beautiful grandchildren. But an even prouder mother to her two sons, Andrey and Stephen. We will miss her cooking, but most of all we will miss her sense of humour, and undying love she had for her family. She also enjoyed playing cards, and the friends she met doing that through the years always had a special place in her heart.
Funeral Service will take place on Friday, February 10, 2023 at 11:00 a.m. at the Timiskaming Funeral Cooperative, French Family Chapel.
Donations in Alexandra’s memory may be made to the Encore Club of Kirkland Lake (5-30 Second Street, East, Kirkland Lake, ON P2N 1R1).
