Obituary of Miro Ernest Moniuk
Miro Ernest Moniuk
January 12, 1937 – November 25, 2019
It is with great sadness that the family of Miro Ernest Moniuk announce his passing on November 25, 2019 in Prince Albert, SK, due to complications from a sudden stroke.
Miro was born on January 12, 1937 in Wakaw, SK to Fred and Ethel Moniuk and was raised on his childhood farm located in Yellow Creek, SK. Miro attended a rural school until the age of 16, at which time he left his beloved farm to pursue his future careers, starting with the oil rigs. He mainly worked out of Manitoba and Saskatchewan with his brothers-in-law Maurice Lareau and Ernie Fey. With his career coming to an end at the oil rigs, he pursued a career working for CN Rail Bridge Crews, based out of Saskatchewan. He met Marion Dallman in January of 1960. They were married on August 27, 1960 at St. Alban’s Cathedral, Prince Albert, SK. Miro continued working for CN Railroads for approximately a year until he started his new job as a maintenance worker at Riverside School in Prince Albert, SK.
In 1969, Miro and Marion had two beautiful children, Ron and Brenda. Shortly after their birth, he obtained a job as a maintenance worker with the Victoria Union Hospital, working with this union for the next 24 years until a debilitating illness ended his career abruptly.
Miro had many hobbies but those who knew him best, knew he loved his fishing, camping, and sharing a cup of coffee. He was a social butterfly always asking:
“You have time for coffee, better have a coffee, you have time”
Miro is survived by his wife Marion (nee Dallman); son Ronald (Kelly) Moniuk; daughter Brenda Moniuk; grandsons Brandon (Cathy Worobetz) Moniuk, Marshall Moniuk; granddaughter Shelby Moniuk (Grandpa’s Dolly); great grandson James Moniuk; sisters Helen Brawley and Victoria Fey; brothers-in-law Lyle Dallman; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
Miro was predeceased by his parents Fred and Ethel Moniuk; grandparents William and Ichtima Boychuk, Theodore and Katherine Moniuk; siblings John (Jean Baker), Anne (Maurice) Lareau, Victor Moniuk; parents-in-law Walter and Grace Dallman; brothers and sisters-in-law Norville Dallman, Ernest Fey, Clayton “Bowie” (Shirley Beverly) Dallman; as well as many other numerous relatives.
