Paraskewia (Peggy) Mychalczyszyn

Peggy was born in Kniazdwor, Ukraine. She had 2 sisters and 2 brothers. In 1951 she married her love, Myron. They had one daughter, Ann (Lundin). In 1957 the family migrated to New Britain, Connecticut, where Peggy began learning the ways of a nurse at a VA hospital. After retiring in 1982, she was very dedicated to her Ukraine Catholic Church. In 2003, Peggy moved to Glenwood Springs to be with family.

Ukrainian cooking, crocheting, and her love for God, family, and friends is Peggy’s legacy. Her great-grandchildren, Ella and Hazen, were the love of her life. They brought Grandma her most joy and were blessed to learn the Ukraine traditions.

Along with Ann, Ella and Hazen, other survivors include grandchildren Tiffany (Dave) Lindenberg of Glenwood Springs and Rodman Lundin, of Westminster, Colorado.

A service to honor Peggy’s life will be held Saturday, February 21, 2015, at Saint Barnabas Episcopal Church in Glenwood Springs at 4:30 pm. A reception will follow. In lieu of flowers, the family encourages people to spend quality time with an elder.
