BODNARCHUK, Coleen Ann
July 30, 1960 – Edmonton, Alberta
March 21, 2019 – Calgary, Alberta
It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Coleen after a short battle with cancer.
She is survived by her mother Faye (Bob) McClain of Hubbles Lake, Alberta and her two sisters Janice Eliasson (Keith Falkenberg) and Lisa (David) Cranstone of Calgary, and by her step-brother Darin (Jennifer) McClain of Maple Ridge, B.C. Coleen will be missed by her beloved nephews David and Kevin Falkenberg. She was predeceased by her father Eugene.
Coleen was a Fine Arts graduate who was skilled in crafts work. For years she has been crocheting Malawi comfort dolls that are used for packing medical supplies and she donated over 1000 of these to Doctors Without Borders. Coleen was proud of her work as an Administrative Assistant at the Haskayne School of Business, University of Calgary. She enjoyed helping faculty and students especially with the preparation and giving of exams.
Coleen had a great love for animals. In particular she was extremely fond of her dogs that she rescued, Binky and Ginny. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Calgary Humane Society, 4455 110 Ave SE, Calgary, AB T2C 2T7 (www.calgaryhumane.ca).
A memorial service will be held later this year in Edmonton.
