MATLASHEWSKI: Doloris Doria Matlashewski passed away peacefully, with family at her side, on Monday, December 13, 2021 at the Brandon Regional Health Centre. Born June 22, 1941 in Winnipeg, Doloris was the youngest of Dmytro and Anna Pawluk's four children. The family lived in Shortdale, MB before moving to Dauphin, MB, where Doloris attended elementary school and Dauphin Collegiate, and was fluent in both English and Ukrainian. Doloris trained as a dental assistant with her brother-in-law, Dr. Sum Kut in Burnaby, BC; she then worked for Dr. Kut for a few months before returning to Dauphin and working with the Robinson Stores Chain. She started back as a dental assistant with Dr. Vernon Watson, eventually becoming his office manager. In her free time, Doloris loved to sing, dance, garden, crochet and look after her family. Doloris will be lovingly remembered by her husband Anthony Matlashewski, son Michael Matlashewski, daughter Wanda (Wally) Matskiw and granddaughter Amanda Matskiw. She was pre-deceased by her parents Dmytro and Anna Pawluk, brother Russell and sisters Luba and Olga. The family will cherish Doloris' memory privately and she will be laid to rest at the Brandon Cemetery with Michael Matlashewski, Wanda Matskiw, Amanda Matskiw and Wally Matskiw as pallbearers. Donations in memory of Doloris may be made to the Arthritis Society, 393 University Avenue, Toronto, ON M5G 1E6.
