Devoted to her beloved Ukrainian community and her faith
By Katherina DEHAAS, Sun., June 8, 2008
An empty chair marked the place where Helen WOLODCHENKO would have sat at a recent gathering to remember the lives lost during the Ukrainian genocide of 1932-33.
She died in her sleep that week, on May 19, and is sadly missed by London's Ukrainian community.
WOLODCHENKO was 87.
"We called her the matriarch. When we lost her, when we buried her, we lost a pillar of our church," said Vivian KOSCHMANN, a close family friend whom WOLODCHENKO called "third daughter."
Known for her involvement in the community and the church, WOLODCHENKO was also a legendary fundraiser.
"Her walls were adorned with medals and plaques from city hall, all tributes paid to her over the years by city hall and the Ukrainian community," said her daughter, Lena WOLODCHENKO.
She was the longest-serving president of the women's club at Holy Trinity Ukrainian Orthodox Church, a position she held for 17 years.
Helen WOLODCHENKO also served as the cook at the Ukrainian club at 247 Adelaide St. S. for many years.
"She did a lot for the community," said KOSCHMANN.
WOLODCHENKO was a survivor of the Ukrainian genocide of 1932, a famine imposed by Joseph Stalin's regime.
She came to Canada in 1949 and moved to London a year later when she heard about the city's small Ukrainian community.
"She was passionate about her homeland and she wanted all her traditions carried on here and she worked hard to do it," KOSCHMANN said.
WOLODCHENKO was even known to host church services in the basement of her Clarence Street home, until Holy Trinity was built.
"She was just passionate about her church and her native land," KOSCHMANN said.
"She'll be remembered for what she did. I don't think we'll ever forget her."
WOLODCHENKO is survived by a brother in the Ukraine and many cousins.
In Canada, she is survived by her three children, Lena WOLODCHENKO, Zena EDGAR and Bill WOLODCHENKO, two grand_sons, two great-grandchildren and countless Friends.
