Margaret “Bernice” Sorochan

Margaret “Bernice” Sorochan passed away at Nanaimo Seniors Village on December 17th at the age of 96.

She is survived by her husband, Steve, her son, Robert, daughter-in law, Margaret, and her two loving grandchildren, Jennifer and Kevin.

She is predeceased by her three brothers Maxwell, Ralph, and Norman Ofstedahl.

Bernie was born in Scout Lake, Saskatchewan on June 10th, 1921. She trained and worked as a Registered Nurse in Yorkton, Saskatchewan where she met and married her sweetheart, Steve, in 1946. They celebrated their 71st Wedding Anniversary last June.

Bernie was strong of character and the matriarch of both the Ofstedahl and Sorochan families, who had the greatest respect for her.

She was loved and adored by her grandchildren, Jennifer and Kevin, and her extraordinary kindness won her many friends, as well. She will be greatly missed by all.
