Obituary of Natalia (Natalie) Tomkiewicz
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Natalie Tomkiewicz, peacefully in her sleep. on Thursday October 6, 2022, in her 98th year. Predeceased by her loving husband Felix of 28 years. She welcomed death as an old friend and left this world for the next reuniting with all those she'd loved and lost over her many years. Natalie and Felix landed on the shores of Canada in 1949, with dreams of a better life after enduring the hardships of WW2. Natalie was an avid churchgoer, and an active participant in the Polish community. Natalie enjoyed the simple pleasures in life, her small tender fruit farm, gardening, collecting walnuts in the crisp autumn air and chamomile on warm summer mornings. Her love for the outdoors called to her until the very end. Natalie's skill as an artist was surpassed only by her skill to sew and to knit slippers. She took loving care of Mickey, the cat she insisted she hated for over 19 years. Natalie is survived by her 3 children, Walter (Ursula), Edith Baker (Doug) and Raymond (Katie). Her 8 grandchildren Mark, Leana, Christopher, Michael, Kristian, Jason, Elisha and Laura. Her 13 great grandchildren Aleesha, Alina, Trinity, Jasmine, Hope, Zoey, Felix, Reeve, Nahla, Marcus, Atticus, Thorsten and Rudy-Rae . The kindness and love she imprinted upon her family will never be forgotten. Natalie will forever be remembered as safe harbour during the storm; for so many took shelter beneath her roof through the years. She welcomed all with open arms, and the selflessness she displayed sowed the seeds of happiness for all those that called her Mother and Babcia. The family will receive friends at George Darte Funeral Home, 585 Carlton Street, St.Catharines, Tuesday, October 11th from 2-4pm & 6-8pm. Funeral Liturgy for Natalie will be held at St. Vincent de Paul Roman Catholic Church, 73 Picton Street, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Wednesday,October 12th, at 11am., with Interment at Niagara Lakeshore Cemetery. If so desired, donations made to the Canadian Cancer Society in Natalie's memory would be appreciated by the family.
