It is with sadness we announce the passing of our mom and grandmother, Marvel Safronik, on Friday, January 29, 2021, at the age of 93 years. She was predeceased by her husband, Peter; her mom and dad, Violet and Hans Bjerke; and two brothers, Lloyd and Vic Bjerke. She is survived by her son, Gerry Safronik; her daughter, Debbie Boyarski; two grandsons, Matthew (Natalie) and Timothy (Luli) Boyarski; a sister, Kaye (Ed) Zado; sister-in-law Pearl Bjerke; and many nieces and nephews.

Mom was born in Willows, SK, on May 20, 1927, to Hans and Violet (nee Hanson) Bjerke. She went to secretary/business school in Regina after high school. Mom was married to Peter for just shy of 61 years, and she lived in Melville, SK, for well over 70 years. She worked at the Melville Advance for many years as a typesetter and retired in 1987.

Keeping in touch with all of her family was very important to mom, and she really enjoyed many fun summers and Christmases with her two grandsons. Her love of baseball had her volunteering for the Melville Millionaire's Baseball Club and going to as many games as she could. Mom and Dad did a little travelling here and there and also spent over 25 years going to Hawaii (January through March) every year, where they met some wonderful friends along the way.

Mom was a compassionate and friendly soul with a good sense of humour, generous with her time and always willing to give a lending hand if needed. She loved having coffee with the ladies on 10th Ave. West, the swim group, Caleb residents and various other friends she met throughout her long life. We thank all her family and friends for keeping in touch with her - your cards, letters and telephone calls brightened her days. She is going to be missed and will live on in our hearts forever until we meet again. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, a memorial service will be held sometime in the future.

Deepest sympathies Gerry and Debbie & Family, on the passing of your mom. I was so surprised to hear of this sad news; however what a long life Mrs. Safronik lived! My family and your family were such great next door neighbours on 10th Avenue W. And the fact that your mother and my mother Betty shared June birthday celebrations for many years... and remained friends from their early 30s (when the Safroniks and Hilworths moved into their newly built houses next door to each other on 10th Avenue W ) until forever, was a testament to the special friendship between them and our families. Thinking of you.

Debbie and Gerry. I am saddened to learn about your Mom. May the thoughts from family and friends comfort you during this time. As I type this I am reminded of many memories growing up next door to the Safroniks! Such great times and great neighbours. I always enjoyed and respected Mrs Safronik. Hugs.

Sending sincere sympathy Gerry and family, I will always remember your Mom from our days bowling. She was always smiling and so pleasant. She was also a very good bowler. Janice Gares

Our sympathy to you Gerry, Debbie and family. Marvel was a good friend to our Mom. I am sure they will all be planning a tea party up there. It is never easy to loose a Mother, no matter what age but know you are in our prayers and thoughts.
