Obituary for Monica Linda Primrose

Fantin’s Funeral Chapel
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Monica Primrose (née Kropinak) on June 14, 2021, at the Crowsnest Pass Health Centre in Blairmore, Alta. She was 69 years of age.

Monica was born in Blairmore on Aug. 4, 1951, to proud parents Albert and Helen Kropinak. Along with her brother, she was raised to work hard and to take care of those around her. She learned these lessons well, and her commitment to her family and to her community was evident in everything she did.

Whether raising her children alongside her husband, Russell, teaching or volunteering her time and energy to a good cause, Monica devoted herself completely to any task she undertook. Over the years, Monica served on the board of the Women’s Resource Centre, was president of the Polish Hall Society and was a 24-year member of Beta Sigma Phi.

In her leisure time, Monica enjoyed a variety of hobbies, including doll collecting and repair, sewing and gardening. She also loved to sing and was a past member of the Crowsnest Community Choir.
Monica was a wonderful person who could light up any room with her smile. The joy she brought to the world is a treasure that cannot be lost.

Left to mourn her passing and celebrate her life are her husband, Russell Primrose of Crowsnest Pass, Alta.; her son, Morgan Primrose; her daughter, Victoria Primrose, and fiancé Mike Mahony; her grandson, Skyler Van der Linden; her brother, Dale (Maxine) Kropinak; her nephew, Brad (Ivana) Kropinak, and their children, Cash and Taliyah; her niece, Rhonda (Will) Rosner, and their children, Luke and Lydia; her uncle, Bruno Michalsky; her aunt, Caara Tanner; many cousins and extended family; as well as countless friends.

She was predeceased by her parents, Helen and Albert Kropinak.
A celebration of Monica’s life will be held when Covid-19 restrictions allow. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations will be gratefully accepted by ddsdthe Crowsnest Pass SPCA (PO Box 725, Blairmore, AB, T0K 0E0), or by your local animal shelter.
