Jariga NadiaJARIGA, Nadia - Nadia Jariga was 98 years old when she passed away to be with her Lord on Tuesday, September 15, 2020.

She was born September 5, 1922 in Ukraine and she raised five children; Ljuba, Walter, Vera, Ann and Elaine.

Nadia dedicated her life to her family and church - she loved to entertain in her home and her home was always open to friends, family and guests. She loved to cook and bake and provide hospitality to others.

She also enjoyed volunteering at the Fergus, ON Slavic children’s camp.


Our Mom had a great sense of humour and loved interacting with people.

In later years she located her siblings in the Ukraine and began travelling there for visits as well as sponsoring them and her nieces and nephews for visits to Canada. 

Of her many interests were plants and flowers and gardening, and she also sewed, crocheted and knitted for her family and friends.

Our dear mother Nadia is lovingly remembered by her son Walter (Vera), and her daughters Ljuba (late Dan), Vera (Bill), Ann (Dan) and Elaine (Jack).

She is also lovingly remembered by her grandchildren Jon (Kathy),  Chris (Terri), Julie (Barry), Carol (Tom), Bill (Amy), and Diane (Gary).  She is also remembered by her 10 great grandchildren Savannah, McKenzie, Andrew, Jacob, Mathew, Ben, Lizzie, Rebecca, Farrah, and Hunter. 

We will miss you greatly Mom, but we know you are in a better place. We love you!
