1929 ~ 2018
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and sister Wanda Mary Naurocki on April 13, 2018 at the Beausejour Hospital. Wanda was born in Beausejour on August 13, 1929, the daughter of Louis and Mary Pirozek and sister to Stanley, Walter, and Victoria.
As a young girl, Wanda helped with the farm chores and in her mid-teens worked in a sewing factory in Winnipeg. Wanda would always return to the farm on the weekends to help. Later on, Wanda met Wilbert Naurocki whom she married. Together, they had five children. Wanda remained on the farm, raising her family and working alongside her husband as they farmed. Mom had a strong work ethic, performing many tasks outside the house. Mom took a lot of pride in her large garden that she planted yearly.
In later years, Mom, alongside her brother Stanley, returned to their passion of music and songs.
Mom is survived by her children, Bertha Mikoluff, Roy (Sharon) Naurocki, Wade (Kathy) Naurocki, and Tracy (Bruce) Modrzejewski, her grandchildren Crystal, Kim, Renee, Jason, and Lisa, great grandchildren, Mackenzie, Rogan, Jett, Jasper and Ben, brother Walter (Linda), sister Victoria and sister in-law Margaret. Mom was predeceased by her parents Louis and Mary, husband Wilbert, daughter Sharon, brother Stanley and son in-law Norman Mikoluff.
Special thanks and gratitude to Dr. Nick Van Rensburg, nurses and staff at both Beausejour Hospital and East Gate Lodge Personal Care Home (Crocus) for their kindness, love and care for mom.
Funeral service will be on Wednesday, April 18 at 11:00 a.m. at Sobering Funeral Chapel, 1035 Park Avenue E., Beausejour with viewing one hour prior to the service. Interment will follow in Polish National Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to East Gate Lodge.

Haven’t been in touch over the years but send my sincere condolences (Hilda Nawolski). Roy, Sharon and family love you all
I knew Wanda since my childhood. Her mother, Mary (nee Nowalski), was a first cousin to my mother, Mary Krawchuk. My parents would visit at their family farm on many occasions. Later, I often saw Wanda and Bert and their children, while visiting at my sister Lilly’s house. Wanda was a hard worker, lived through some really tough times, however, usually had a smile on her face. I would stop and buy corn from her when she sold it beside highways. I would also see her at the 55 plus dances in Beausejour where she came in with Victoria in tow. I am sure Victoria will miss her just as much as her children will. I always respected her. To her family, please know she is with God. She has surely earned her place with Him. Love and respect, condolences to her family. Kathy Krawchuk Fecio
