A life well-lived came to a peaceful end April 19th, 2021 after 107 incredible years.  Jessie’s parents Stefan & Teresa Horychun and 2 sons immigrated from Zbarazh, western Ukraine in 1911 and settled in Prince Albert, SK.  Jessie was born on January 13th, 1914.  Later that year they moved to a homestead in the Honeymoon district.  Jessie’s sister was born in 1915 but passed of diphtheria in 1919.  Her mother passed away in 1926 after a short illness.  Twelve-year-old Jessie and her father continued farming.

Jessie married Mike Korpess, originally from Malinow, western Ukraine, on September 21st, 1936.  They continued living in Honeymoon and were blessed with two daughters.  In 1945, they moved to a farm in the Clouston area where two more daughters & two sons were born to very happy parents.  Mike passed away in 1992 and Jessie continued living on the farm until 2001, when she moved to Sherman Towers in Prince Albert and remained there until her passing.  Many friendships were made, and Jessie thoroughly enjoyed her years there.  Her family and friends were very special to her.  Birthdays and special occasions were rarely forgotten.

Her love, kindness, and respect for everyone and everything is her legacy that inspires us all.  Jessie was a very curious person and was very interested in the lives of her family, as well as the world around her.  Her travels included trips to both Montreal and Vancouver Expos, seeing Queen Elizabeth in Winnipeg, enjoying Butchart Gardens, Niagara Falls, Banff, and she even ventured north to Yellowknife.

Jessie is survived by her children, grandchildren, and their spouses.  Sally (Archie) Brule and their son Brad; Zena (Ken) Adams and their children Sandra (Neudorf) and Brent; Stella Sloboda and her children Jean and James; Helen Mather and her children Kelly and Ronda (Stone); John (Donna) Korpess and their children Alison and Dean; her daughter in law Lee Korpess and her children Sheri and David; as well as 12 great-grandchildren, and three great-great-grandchildren.

Jessie was predeceased by her parents Stefan & Teresa; her brothers Leo and Maxim; her sister Mary; her husband Mike; her son Roy & son-in-law Peter Sloboda.

Due to COVID restrictions, a private service will be held.  Arrangements in care of MacKenzie Chapel & Crematorium – Shellbrook Funeral Home.  Brian & Bev Stobbs, Renee Phaneuf & Mark Gyoerick. 306.763.8488.

My most sincere condolences in the loss of a very humble and gentle lady. I recall many happy visits I had with Jessie. She would light up a room as soon as she entered. She will be missed by many. Take comfort in knowing the respect and admiration many had for her. Thank you for sharing her with us. Prayers today and in the coming days. Hilliard and Sandra Mirasty
