BUZINSKI- Mrs. Victoria Buzinski of Gorlitz, beloved wife of the late William Businski, peacefully entered eternal life on October 27, 2017 at her home. Victoria Buzinski (Zachary) was born April 5, 1925 on the family homestead in the Arran/Vesna district. She was the middle child of nine children. Victoria completed grades 1 to 8 at Vesna School, Grades IX to X by correspondence and Grade XI at Arran High School. In 1944 Victoria moved to Sturgis where she obtained her Grade XII diploma. In 1945 she attended Teacher's College (Normal School) in Saskatoon. In September of that year she began her teaching career. Her last nine years of teaching were spent at Gorlitz School where she met William (Wally) who was her life companion for 46 years. Their marriage was blessed by two sons Peter & Michael at which time she left her teaching career and devoted her time to her family. After her sons were grown up she began teaching classes in Ukrainian Art, specifically in the art of Easter Egg writing, the symbols and colour significance. This kept her committed to hold on to her Ukrainian Culture and tradition. She was proud to be a Ukrainian Canadian. Lord Tweedsmuir once said "you cannot be a good Canadian unless you are a good Ukrainian". Victoria did numerous demonstrations and display for various organizations over the years. Some of which included the Knights of Columbus, The Royal Visit, Sacred Heart Reunion, etc. Victoria was forever grateful to her mother for passing this work of art, a true joy. Her gift of a lifetime was being able to contribute her work of art to Musée Ukraina Museum in Saskatoon. This contribution was recognized by a special blessing from Bishop Michael Wiwchar along with a beautiful icon.
