Constance "Connie" May (DeGroot) Michalsky

September 25, 1937 ~ January 12, 2022 (age 84)


   Connie Michalsky, beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother, passed away peacefully into the arms of the Lord on January 12 2022 at the Crownsest Pass Hospital, Blairmore, AB.

   This beautiful, loving and no nonsense lady leaves behind precious memories to all who were fortunate enough to know her. 

   Connie was born in Pincher Creek, AB on September 25, 1937 to Linnie and Pete DeGroot.  In 1939 the family moved to Coleman, AB where Connie spent the rest of her life in the beautiful mountains that she adored. 

   Connie was an incredibly talented artist, chef, baker, carpenter, landscaper and seamstress.  Whatever she set her mind to she not only accomplished, but also excelled. 

   Connie’s greatest love and achievement was her role as loving wife, mother grandmother and great grandmother.  She is survived by her daughter and best friend, Karen Cytko; her son, Terry Michalsky and his wife, Melody; her grandchildren and their spouses, Kyle and Kyla Cytko, Kelly and Brad, Sarah and Mark Amatto, and Kevin and Lindsey Michalsky; and her great grandchildren, Bryar, Ember, Nate, Andrea, Levi and Colter.

   Connie was predeceased by her husband, Ted; her parents Linnie and Pete DeGroot; her sister, Betty; her brother, Billy; and her son-in-law, Louis Cytko. 

   Although she is no longer with us, her memory will hold on forever in the hearts and minds of all who knew and loved her. 

   As per Connie’s wishes, a private family memorial will take place at a later date.  Friends and extended family wishing to remember Connie with a charitable memorial donation may do so to the Canadian Cancer Society (
