TODOSCHUK - Cheryl was born on October 13th, 1963, the youngest of three, to Bill and Vivian Toderash in Swan River Manitoba. She spent her school life in Swan River, and later moved to Mafeking, where she worked as a school bus driver, Conservation Fire Watch and volunteered with Mafeking Fire Department.
It was there that she first took an interest in becoming an emergency responder, which she achieved and started working in Swan River, and later in Roblin. She often spoke fondly of the people and the time spent working with EMS. She took pride in what she did, and always tried to do her best. It was during this time she met the love of her life, Tony Todoschuk. They were together for two years before they were married in St. Michael’s church in the district of Veregin, just south of their home, in 2005. Cheryl loved her family and friends dearly, and indulged in every opportunity to spend time with them.
When she wasn’t with people she cared about, she enjoyed the peace and quiet of the country life, which jived well with her aptitude for speed reading, sometimes reading an entire novel in a day. She hung up her EMS jacket after marrying Tony, but that doesn’t mean she wasn’t busy. She always enjoyed spending any time she could with Tony’s two children, which she
loved as her own. In addition, she worked at the Togo and Kamsack Credit Union, and later for the Kamsack Union Hospital as a CSR.
She fought bravely against cancer several times, always with her head held high, and a smile in her heart, often uplifting those around her with her infectious laugh, contagious smile, and always present sense of humour. Cheryl passed away on Friday, June 12, 2015 at the Kamsack Health Centre. She was 51 years of age. She is survived by her loving husband Tony, his two children Kolton and Teawna, parents Bill and Vivian, brothers Clarence (Valerie), Glen (Gloria) and nephews Aaron and Devin. Prayers were held on Tuesday evening, June 16th 2015, the funeral service was held on Wednesday morning, June 17th, all from St. Mark’s Orthodox Church in Yorkton.

The interment took place in the Yorkton Memorial Gardens followed by a reception in the Family Centre. The pallbearers were Aaron, Devin, Peter and Scott Toderash, and Teawna & Kolton Todoschuk.
