Mom was born on March 6, 1925 in Port Arthur, Ontario and was

the third daughter of Doris & Nicholas Erechook. On June 2, 1940

she married the love of her life Delco Harasyn. They spent their early

years in Beardmore, Ontario where they owned and operated

“The Delmar Restaurant” & later “The Blue Parrott Restaurant”

in Thunder Bay, Ontario before moving to British Columbia.

Mom was predeceased by her parents Doris & Nicholas

Erechook, and her loving husband Delco Harasyn and her

three sisters, Elsie, Pauline & Stella & older brother Lawrence.

Mom is survived & will be forever missed by her five children

grandchildren Montana & Hunter, and many nieces & nephews.

Mom is also survived by her older brother Nester Erechook of Wawa,

Ontario, youngest sister Virginia (Hank Stecheson) of Powell River,

and sister-in-law Joanna (Cassie) Pearson of Emerson, Manitoba.

Mom will be especially missed by her puppy and best friend Buddy.

“There are too many words needed to describe her life, and

not enough words to say how much she will be truly missed.”

We love you Mom – God Bless You!
