It is with deep sadness the families announce the passing of Mabel Chutskoff at the age of 87, on November 29, 2011, at Trail Regional Hospital following a brief illness.
Mabel was born in Cowley, Alberta, and the oldest of five children, born to Fred and Anna Hlookoff.
She was married to Tim Chutskoff (predeceased 1976) and lived in Robson, BC, where they raised their family of 3 sons. Beloved mother to Larry (Christine) Chutskoff, Cecil (Leona) Chutskoff and Tim (Pat) Chutskoff and a loving Grandmother to Sarah, Leah (Jeff), Steven, Kyle and Bryce, all of Vancouver, BC.
Mabel met her companion of her golden years, Peter Relkoff (predeceased 2003) in the early 80’s and his loving family, Ann (Joe) Perepolkin and Pete (Shirley) Relkoff and their children, Debbie (Jim) Pereversoff, Angela (Howard) Teorin, Brad Perepolkin, Lance (Nola) Perepolkin, Derek (Irina) Relkoff, and Holly (Scot) Woods and their families.
She is also survived by her sisters Mary Gritchin of Chilliwack, Hazel (Peter) Chernoff of Krestova, and Doris (Peter) Laktin of Nelson. Predeceased by her brother Fred Hlookoff and brother in law, Alec Gritchin.
Mom was a passionate gardener and took great pride in growing flowers; roses being her favorite. She was a life time member of the USCC and enjoyed volunteering in her community, reading, traveling, cooking and dedicating her life to looking after her family and friends. She was a strong, independent woman that spent her years making this world a better place.
The families would like to thank all her friends, relatives and community, for their strong support at this time. Also, thank you to the staff of the Trail Regional Hospital, Dr. T Clemans-Gibbon, Dr. N Scotland and Dr. N Dixon-Warren for their excellent care and compassion.
Funeral services were held at the Brilliant Cultural Centre on December 5, 2011 with interment at the Brilliant Cemetery. Donations can be made in memory of
Mabel to the B.C. Cancer Foundation or ISKRA.
