SHELEST: Agatha Victoria Shelest (nee Magjak). It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our dearest mom/baba after a short battle with cancer. Baba passed away peacefully in her sleep at Holy Family Home in Winnipeg on Saturday, May 22, 2021 at the age of 90. Remaining to forever cherish her memory are her beloved children Annette and Lynn Chartrand, Brenda and Terry Rheubottom, Greg and Christine; adored grandchildren Theresa and Cam Basarab, Elizabeth Hands, Matthew Chartrand, Dylan and Spencer King; and much loved great-grandsons Evan and Ashton Basarab, Luke Hands. Brothers Ed and Michael Magjak (Brandon), Aunt Evelyn Levenick (Edmonton), cousins, nieces and nephews in Manitoba, Alberta and California. Predeceased by her beloved husband Harry (April 2008). Born on December 23, 1930 in Brandon, MB mom moved to Winnipeg after meeting the love of her life, our dad Harry, at a family wedding in November 1949 and they married August 23, 1952. After her mother was in failing health, baba took to the Greyhound Bus, travelling back and forth to Brandon on a regular basis for 40 years. She knew every ticket agent, baggage handler and bus driver by name and she often helped rookie drivers find their way to the bus depot in Brandon! Her final trip was in 2016 at the age of 86. As her own health began to fail she moved first to Thorvaldson Care Center in May 2017 and then to Holy Family Home in June 2019. According to baba's wishes, cremation has taken place and a private family service will be held when possible
