Pearl Kitzul Obituary

Pearl Kitzul

1934 - 2023



After a long stay at the Swan Valley Health Centre Pearl Kitzul (Matechuk) succumbed to Chronic Heart Failure, passing away at the age of 88 on November 25th,2023.

Pearl was the youngest of four sisters. They grew up in Playmore, SK. They went to the New Canadian (Verenczanka) S.D. # 264 School. She met Andy Kitzul at a dance one evening.

They were married on October 19th,1952, and started their life together. They moved to Flin Flon, MB. Pearl worked at Johnnie’s Confectionary Store, also taking care of the household and her daughter Charlene. They moved in with her sister Emmy and then they moved to her sister Elsie so that she could help them on their farm. They purchased a farm in Lenswood, MB where they began farming, raising pigs, cattle, and a few horses and they raised their family there.

Pearl loved gardening, canning, cooking, music and playing cards. She continued to play cards with the assistance of her children and grandchildren up until a month ago. She took part in different groups in the community, but worked extremely hard on the farm and this fact left her little spare time for these things. She volunteered as time permitted. She passed on her traditions and skills to her children and grandchildren.

When Reg began his family, Pearl and Andy purchased an acreage south of Kenville, MB and moved. Their last move was to Swan River, where Pearl lived up until August 10th,2023 when she was admitted to Swan Valley Health Centre.
