It is with great sadness that we, the family, announce the passing of our dear wife, mother, sister, grandmother and great-grandmother, aunt and best friend, Ella Kolchetski on Friday, October 4, 2019 in the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney, surrounded by those who love her. Born in Sydney and raised in Whitney Pier, Ella was the daughter of the late Joseph and Charlotte (Bachanski) Porga. Ella was a compassionate woman. Of her many traits, Ella is best known for being caring, loving, kind and most of all, always wanting to feed you. Ella is survived by her husband, Michael Kolchetski,; daughter, Karen (Harold) and their children, Jordan (Justine), Keigan and Rayne; daughter, Michelle (Richard) and their children, Kory and Samantha; great-granddaughter, Braislyn; sister, Anne Mesics; sisters-in-law, Bernadette and Sally; as well as several nieces, nephews and numerous foster grandchildren. Besides her parents, Ella was predeceased by her sister, Margie and brothers, Frankie, Rudy, and Billy at infancy. Visitation and memorial service to celebrate the life of Ella Porga Kolchetski will be held at Pier Community Funeral Home, 1092 Victoria Rd. (entrance on Church Street) on Tuesday, October 8, 2019. A gathering of family and friends will take place from 6–8 p.m. with the memorial service to follow at 8 p.m. in the All Faith Chapel with Fr. Paul Murphy officiating. Light refreshments will be served in the reception area following the service. The family would like to thank the family doctor, Dr. Ajuwon and the second-floor nurses of New Waterford Hospital. We would also like to give thanks to Dr. Hewlett, Dr. Young, Dr. Thana and the supporting staff at the dialysis clinic. We are grateful to the Emergency department at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital for their kindness and compassion given to us and Ella during her time of need.
