The perfect Baba

A lifetime member of the Ukrainian Catholic Church, Cassie Holowka married Andrew Boyachuk at Zoria District in 1934, and lived there until 1967 moving to the Gilbert Plains.  Cassie and Andrew had one son, Edward, and daughter, Stella. Andrew passed away in 1985. Cassie lived the remainder of her life in Mississauga / Etobicoke and became very active with church activities, catering (her famous perogies, cabbage rolls and apple pies), bingo, family and friends. She is adored by her children, grandchildren and great children, and forever known as Baba.
