Obituary for Olga K. Ezis

Olga Kurnyk Ezis, died peacefully early Christmas morning, at Hartford Hospital, surrounded by her loving family. Olga was born on February 18, 1945 to Wasyl and Emilia (Colyhan) Kurnyk in Kleinschwechten, Germany. Olga immigrated to America on February 2, 1950 and settled in Willimantic. Four years ago, Olga moved to Tolland to be with her daughter Amy, Amy’s husband Jeff, but most importantly her granddaughter, Phoebe Andie.

Her love of grammar and vocabulary led her to Windham Public Schools, where she served in several capacities for 35 years. Olga loved sharing meals with family, especially at restaurants where she’d routinely order off-menu, then somehow arrange to pay the bill. She was a loyal volunteer at the Covenant Soup Kitchen. She was an active member of countless boards, charities and organizations and will be dearly missed by all those who knew her, and the community she so proudly served.

Olga was predeceased by her loving husband of 37 years, Andris (Andy). She leaves behind her daughters Adrienne (Ron) Humiston and Amy (Jeff, Phoebe) Green. Celebrating her life as The Top Sister, is the Kurnyk family of Irene and Rene Goss; Rose, Steve, Kevin, Eric and Brian Dean; Kessenia, Gilles and Emilia Gagnon; Natalka, Michael, Cynthia and Shawn Paulhus; Myron, Janine, Margaret and Olivia Kurnyk. Olga is also survived by her niece LeeAnn Ezis and nephew Ernest Ezis.

Relatives and friends may call on Sunday December 29, from 4 to 7PM at Bacon Funeral Home 71 Prospect St, Willimantic. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Monday December 30, at 10AM directly at St. Joseph Church 99 Jackson St, Willimantic. Burial will be in St. Joseph Cemetery, Windham.

In honor of Olga’s volunteerism, the family requests in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Willimantic Covenant Soup Kitchen 220 Valley St, Willimantic, CT. 06226.
