SISKEWICH: Anastasia (Nell) Siskewich née Warantz. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, great aunt and friend, Anastasia Siskewich that passed away peacefully at Fairview Home on Thursday, October 8, 2020. Anastasia was born in Brandon on October 11, 1914. She passed away just three days shy of her 106th birthday. Anastasia was predeceased by her loving husband, Frank of 63 years; son, David; parents, Gregory and Mary; brothers, Peter, Paul, Bill and sister, Anne. Remaining to love and remember her forever are her daughter, Doreen Radford of Winnipeg; grand-daughters, Debra (Barry) Tomiski of Winnipeg, Delene (Chris) Emick of Virginia; Cindy (Kevin) Radford-Taylor of Richmond Hill, Ontario, Sherri (Jeff) West of Winnipeg, Jennifer (Slav) Serek of Winnipeg; brother, John (Bernice) Warantz; brother-in-law, John (Sisk); great-grandchildren: Devin and Travis Tomiski, Joshua, Zachary, and Matthew Emick, Kasmir Radford, Liam West, Gabby and Kyra Serek. Anastasia loved her nieces, nephews and their families. Anastasia and Frank had a great partnership and raised and supported their son David, daughter Doreen and their families through their life. Anastasia was a wonderful soul who brought light and laughter to any room and to all she met in her life. She was one of those rare people that you come across in life that are so selfless and kind that you feel blessed to have met. She was the matriarch of our family and always was there to provide love and support to all of us along the way. She was active in her faith, community, baking, crocheting, knitting and cooking to support her church events. Anastasia enjoyed her home, gardening and her family. She will forever be missed and always in our hearts. Special thanks for all the weekly visits from friends Linda and Tony, Margaret, Auntie Bea and nieces, nephews and their families for always making time to come and visit with Grandma and bring coffee and treats. Thank you to all of the wonderful staff on third floor at Fairview that she adored and thought of as her friends. Thanks for taking the time to chat with her, let her teach you her crocheting skills and make her feel like a friend. A private Mass of Christian Burial will be held at St. Augustine's Roman Catholic Church with Fr. John Okosun as Celebrant. The family has invited you to watch the livestream of the Mass of Christian Burial for Anastasia remotely on Wednesday, October 14, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. by visiting Anastasia's tribute page on the Brockie Donovan website at In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Anastasia may be made to St. Augustine's Roman Catholic Church, 327-4th Street, Brandon, MB, R7A 3H1.
