Obituary of Lena Melnyk

Lena Melnyk (Lukianchuk)

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our Mother, Grandmother, and Great Grandmother, Lena Melnyk. Lena passed away peacefully at Brandon Hospital on March 16, 2023 at the age of 92. 

Lena was born May 24, 1930 and grew up on the farm in Horod, Manitoba. She met her Husband Bill and raised her son Barry in Birtle, Manitoba until 1959, when they decided to move to Brandon. At this time, Bill and Lena opened the Melnyk Beauty and Barber shop on 10th street. Lena enjoyed hair styling and the fellowship that came with this profession. Lena also enjoyed gardening in her large yard, and was devoted to her faith.  

Lena was predeceased by her husband Bill, her parents, and all of her siblings. She will be missed by her son Barry; her grandchildren Bill (Shawna), Bryan (Allyson), Blaine (Theresa); and great grandchildren Kaiden, Owen, Ty, Erik, Mya, Morgan, Matthew, Brendan; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

A graveside service will be held at the Brandon Cemetery, 1901 18th Street, on Monday, March 27, 2023 at 1:00 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to CancerCare Manitoba, 1160 – 675 McDermot Ave., Winnipeg, MB, R3E 0V9.
