Veronica Yeroschak of Yorkton, widow of Ed Yeroschak entered eternal rest on September 27, 2019 at the age of 73 years. Veronica Rose Yeroschak was born in Grandview, MB on February 23, 1946. She was the youngest child of the now deceased Michael Ostrowski (1959) and Stella (Gunchoski) Ostrowski (1987). Veronica was the youngest of three children and is predeceased by her brother Philip Ostrowski (1978) and sister Adeline Ostrowski (2009). As a young woman Veronica left home to go work with her sister in Yellowknife and would eventually move to Thompson, MB. During her time in Thompson she would meet and marry her husband Ed Yeroschak, July 15, 1967, her husband of the next 48 years. They would then have 2 daughters, Chantelle Forsyth and Rashele Wasylenchuk during their time in Thompson. During this period, she would cultivate many friendships and build a strong bond with her new Yeroschak family. She would become a mother like figure to her many new brothers and sister who would often reside with them. Veronica and Ed would then move to Campbell River, BC where new job opportunities arose. During this time new friendships and interests would continue as they continued to raise their family. Veronica along with her husband, Ed, would enjoy camping and gardening. The prairies would soon call them back to rejoin their family nearby, and in 1980 Veronica and Ed would move to Yorkton. This would become Veronica's final home. Veronica would work at the Yorkton nursing home for the next 28 years and would eventually retire from there. During her time in Yorkton, Veronica would enjoy new friendships, volunteering with CWL and becoming an avid quilter. Veronica loved to travel, she particularly enjoyed her many trips to visit her daughter and grandchildren in the US. Her forgiving, loving and nurturing personality is what most will remember her by.
Veronica is survived by daughters Chantelle (James) and Rashele (Barry) and 3 grandchildren Danielle, Ian and Maeghan.
Good bye Veronica/Mom you leave us as better people for knowing and loving you. Our hearts are aching with your passing but we know you will now rest in the arms of our Lord.

My sincere condolences to Veronica’s loved ones. When Veronica was in the Pasqua Hospital in Regina, she shared a room with my sister, Cheryl. We chatted often and I found Veronica to be a very kind, selfless, and loving person. She always had a smile no matter how rough she felt. She expressed to me how she truly adored her daughters and cherished all of her family. I didn’t know Veronica for long, but I know the world is not quite as bright without her. I will always remember her smile and the brief friendship we shared.

My deepest condolences on the passing of Veronica. I fondly remember when they moved into the house across the back alley from my parents. My mom and dad became quite close with them during that time, and your parents helped my mom out in the years following my dad's passing. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.
