|Mable Sofonoff obituary, 1968|
Forty-six years ago, Mable Sofonoff, my husband’s paternal aunt, passed away in Edmonton, Alberta. She was the eldest child and only daughter of Russian immigrants Wasyl and Luchenia (Tomelin) Demosky.
In December 1938, Mable married Lazar (Louis) Sofonoff. They farmed in eastern Saskatchewan, where their son Harvey was born. The family moved to Alberta in the early 1950s.
Mable was the first of her siblings to pass away. She was interred in Tolstoy Cemetery, just north of Veregin [Verigin], Saskatchewan, where her parents rest.
