Olga Nahnybida born to Metro and Cassie (Bugera) Broder on Oct 3, 1925, North of Arran, Saskatchewan. The family moved to Arran when she was two years old. She was educated and graduated at Arran School. In 1945 she married Paul Nahnybida at the Pelly United Church.
They lived on an acreage north of Arran until 1960, then moved to a farm north and west of Arran in the Padolia District.
She loved the farm and all nature. They always had a lot of company, so she was very busy with cooking and baking. Some of her favorite pastimes were sewing, reading, music, and singing and planting a very large garden. She learned to play guitar and accordion. When her husband passed away in 1973, she moved to Arran to be close to her mother, because her father passed away in 1974. That is when she became involved in her Christian walk and in the church. She remained living in Arran a few years after her mother passed away in 1983.
In 1987 she moved to a low rental apartment in Pelly. While there she had an opportunity to lead a small group of women in a bible study for a few years. She loved to travel to visit her children and grandchildren. Life was satisfying to her. Her most precious possession was her Bible which she studied and memorized many verses.
She was predeceased by her husband Paul in 1973, father; Metro Broder in 1974, mother; Katherine (Bugera) Broder in 1983, grandson; Desmond Nahnybida in 2002, and son; Leon Nahnybida in 2016.
She is leaving behind her sister; Natalie Stauff of Detroit Michigan, Children; Gerry Nahnybida of Pelly SK, Paulette (Marvin) Middleton of Yorkton, SK, Debbie (Gil) Holland who farm at Arran SK, and Cindy Marchuk of Harris, SK, as well as 13 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren, and various relatives and friends.
