Dorothy Margaret Olsheskie (Yantha, Golka)

Dorothy was called to her eternal home
December 31, 2019. She died peacefully at
St. Francis Memorial Hospital with family at her side.
Dorothy was born in Barry’s Bay on July 12, 1932,
the daughter of Louis Golka and Margaret
Smith. She was united in marriage to Dominic
V. Yantha in 1951. Their marriage was blessed
with four children: Robert (Barb), Danny (Debbie),
Patrick (Gail) and Gerry. Also left in sorrow are 4
grandchildren (Stephanie, Jennifer, Graham, James)
and 5 great grandchildren (Trevawn, Henry, Alina, George and Brynley).
Dorothy was predeceased by her husband (Dominic), 2 sons (Robert
and Danny), brothers (Leonard, Harry, Andrew, and Donnie) and sisters
(Theresa and Rita). She is survived by one sister-in-law, Mary Golka.
Dorothy was widowed from Dominic in 1987. She married a 2nd time to
Mack Olsheskie in 1991.
They enjoyed life together until Mack’s passing in 2013.
Dorothy devoted her life to her family and was well-known as an excellent
cook, baker and hostess. She loved company and you never left her
home without a meal and a tea.
Funeral service was held at St. Hedwig’s Roman Catholic Church in
Barry’s Bay. Burial will follow in the spring.
Pall-Bearers were Dorothy’s 2 grandsons, 2 step-sons and 2 nephews.
The service was officiated by Father Pawel Ratajczak.
She was a remarkable and gentle woman who touched the lives of many
over her 87 years. She practiced her Faith, and spent much time in Prayer.
She will be greatly missed. May she now rest in peace.
