Wasylina Lushney bequeathed over $400,000 to local charities

“Wasylina Lushney, late of Yorkton, who formerly farmed with her husband Bill in the Wroxton area, passed away on October 26, 2018. Wasylina had been a very generous person with local charities during her life and she continued to show her compassion and how much she cared for others by making substantial bequests in her will.

Wasylina had owned three quarter sections of land in the Wroxton area which after her passing were listed for sale and sold. Those funds were then dispersed to The Health Foundation of East Central Saskatchewan in Yorkton, the Kamsack Hospital and Eaglestone Lodge in Kamsack.

“We are very grateful and thankful to receive a substantial bequest like this,” said Ross Fisher, Executive Director of The Health Foundation. “Wasylina Lushney was a very generous person while she was alive and made many generous contributions to help our work improving healthcare. We are very glad that she made a will that reflected her values, and that she continued to support the community and to help care for others even after she has passed.”

“The Health Foundation was fortunate to receive $282,371. This is a very substantial donation and it will help us to purchase needed equipment in the Yorkton Regional Hospital,” said Mr. Fisher. “We are grateful to Wasylina for her generosity and to all of those individuals who remember to think of others and how they might make a difference in other lives by making a charitable bequest.”
