March 27, 1941- December 22, 2020

The family of John Morowski is saddened to announce his passing on December 22, 2020 in Winnipeg Manitoba. With his children by his side John peacefully left this Earth to be with our Heavenly Father.

John was a greatly beloved and caring husband, father, brother, uncle, grandpa, great grandpa, and friend. John will be deeply mourned and dearly missed by all who knew him. John was predeceased by his parents Fred and Nellie Yurkiw, two brother-in-laws (Harold and Rae), two sister-in-laws (Carmen and Melody), and mother-in-law (Anne). Deeply feeling his loss are his wife Betty Elizabeth Morowski of Selkirk, Manitoba, his four children Donna (John) Solleveld, Cindy (Paul) Flynn, Rosanne (Jarrod) Plett, Steven (Marla) Morowski, and three step children Kerry Sumka, Darrell Sumka, and Michelle Sumka. John also leaves to mourn his brother Robert and his 4 sisters Olga (Kit), Ethel (d. Harold), Anne (Orlando), Jean (d. Rae). His special friends Nan Morowski, Cecile McMurray, Roland Fillion, 17 grandchildren, four great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.

John was born in Weiden, Manitoba. John spent most of his young working life in construction up north on the dams and later in years until his retirement from Orloff Scrap Metal. In 1963 he met Nan Gudgeon and they were married from 1964 to 1992, they had four children. In 2001 John remarried Betty Sumka. When he finally retired, John and Betty moved to Selkirk, Manitoba where they remained until John’s death. In John’s past time he enjoyed going fishing especially with his sons-in-law, stripping copper for hours on end, and listening to the Portage Polka Station. He also loved to go dancing especially at the Legion, and his most favorite thing to do was to play Canasta with his special friends and family. His favorite saying was “where’s the coffee?” and “who’s playing cards?”. John would do anything to help anyone in need; he was a patient, kind, and caring friend and family man.

John you will be greatly missed by all who loved you.

Keep on shuffling until we can play again.

I lost another dad. I’m feeling terrible I cannot come to say good bye except in this way. John your smile, laughter and the look on your face when some one would freeze the pile in canasta. I hope you and dad can get a game going.

Condolence from Iris Wegner on December 30th, 2020 3:12 pm

It has been far too many years, but my greatest memory is spending hours on end waiting for the canasta game to be over yet again so we could go home and sleep. I was a teenager then and think back on those times fondly as laughter and shouts surrounded the 4 adults that played. My own father, long since passed, loved his friend John. John was a loveable character, always sporting a smile and he touched my life with kindness. He will be missed by his family and all of us who knew him. God bless you John. With heart felt sympathy.

Condolence from Dave and Carol on December 30th, 2020 3:56 pm

Our condolences to John’s family. He will always be missed. Mom and dad always enjoyed his company and he always showed up with a supply of rye bread. RIP

Our condolences to the Family of Johnny. I am so proud to call you my friend, and even though I haven’t seen you in a while, I would ask your sister Ethel how you were doing. When I was told that you were struggling with your health it broke my heart to learn that. Johnny, may you Rest In Peace and know that God’s Garden must be beautiful, He only takes the Best. Polka time. Your Friend Adeline
