Naddia Swereda Obituary

Naddia passed away at the Brandon General Hospital on Wednesday, January 10, 2024 at the age of 84 years.

Naddia was one of eight children born to Stanley and Victoria Drozda of Olha, MB.

In 1957 Naddia met Walter Swereda. They were married September 5, 1959 and resided in Winnipeg until 1963.  In 1963 they returned to Olha and purchased the Olha General Store from Fred and Lena Posmituck. In 1968 they also took over the Texico Bulk Fuel Dealership from Bruce Dickie in Shoal Lake.   In 1971 they moved to Shoal Lake.

Naddia & Walter were blessed with two sons, Mark and Bradley.

Naddia is known for her hard work ethic and excellent cooking. It didn’t matter if it was cooking for one or 945 people, the food was hot and delicious.  She helped raise funds for the old and new rink kitchens. After leaving the rink she worked as a cook in the hospital/nursing home until she retired in 2004.

Naddia’s faith was unwavering right to the end.  As a terrific cook, Naddia knew food was nourishment to keep a physical presence on earth, she also knew faith was the best nourishment to continue life and passage into heaven.

Naddia is survived by her sons: Mark (Cyndy) Swereda of Shoal Lake, Brad (Alison) Swereda of Shoal Lake, and three grandchildren: Samantha, Thomas and Riley.  She is also survived by brothers, Don Drozda of Shoal Lake, Mervin Drozda of Olha, sister Marion Koltusky of Olha, brother-in-law Leonard Rupa of Shoal Lake, sisters-in-law Rose Drozda of Erickson, Stella Swereda of Winnipeg and brother-in-law Melvin Swereda of Winnipeg.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
