Obituary of Kit Cojocar
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Kit Cojocar on Tuesday, November 23, 2021, at the Assiniboia Union Hospital Long Term Care, at the age of 90 years. Catherine Florence Cojocar and her twin brother, George, were born on November 18, 1931, on the family farm near Kamsack, SK, to Andrew and Florence “Flossie” Holliday. Kit attended Mylor School, a small country school that was a mile and a half from the farm. Her high school education began at Togo High School. During the warmer months Kit and George would ride their bikes on the four-mile trek, however, they had to walk during the winter. Kit completed grade 10 at Togo High and then went on to Notre Dame College. After graduation she enrolled at Success Business College in Regina. Upon completion of the secretarial course, she was hired by the Bank of Montreal, which was only a few doors down from the college. Kit met the love of her life, John Cojocar, while he was visiting family in Regina. A chance encounter turned into a lifelong commitment, and they were married on November 22, 1952, at St. Nicholas Romanian Orthodox Church in Regina. They immediately took up residence in a tiny, two-bedroom home on SE 18-7-3 W3, in the Limerick district. Kit and John were blessed with two children, Danny in 1953 and Audrey in 1955. In 1963, Kit and John realized they would have to build an addition to their house or look for something larger. Luckily, they were able to find a house in Melaval. After a few obstacles, including installing plumbing, heating, and a broken-down moving truck, they were able to have it relocated to the farm. Many happy hours were spent in this home with family, neighbours, and friends from far and wide. When Kit and John semi-retired they remained on the farm, spending their time gardening, looking after the yard, raising chickens, and enjoying their home. In the fall of 2013, Kit and John moved into a cottage in Assiniboia. They sold the farm and settled into their new life, surrounded by amazing neighbours, some of which were friends from their farming years. Kit loved spending time with her children and grandchildren. She treasured her great grandchildren and visits with them were so special. Kit will be remembered for her kind and generous heart, and fond memories of her will be treasured always. Kit is survived by her son Danny Cojocar, grandson Chris Cojocar; daughter Audrey (Hector) Lizee, grandson Jason Lizee, great-granddaughter Jayda, grandson Collin (Tammy) Lizee, great-grandsons Blayze, Zander, Huxley, granddaughter Tanya (Kevin) Schmidt, great-grandchildren Jersey, Brody; sister-in-law Emily Cojocar; and numerous nieces and nephews.
