It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Cheyenne Hilda Irene Boryskavich of Thompson, Manitoba on April 14, 2020; daughter of Lorna May Fitzner and Late Nathan Michael Ward Boryskavich, born on June 2, 1996.
Cheyenne worked at Subway when she lived in Winnipeg with her mother; she attended UCN in Thompson to obtain her Grade 12 Certificate, she had 2 more credits to complete.
In her short life Cheyenne lived in Thompson, Belmont, North Battleford SK, The Pas, Winnipeg, and back to Thompson. Cheyenne was also known to her Dad as Sweetheart, Babyface, Spaz; to her friends and family as Chey, Shaii, Auntie-Pantie, Chib, Spy-enne. So many endearing, loving nicknames. She bought the best out in people around her.
Cheyenne’s favourite thing to do was drawing and painting, an incredible talent she inherited from her Dad who she absolutely adored, she was indeed “Daddy’s girl.” She also enjoyed spending time with friends via any social media app and was very good at these apps, she was popular in the social media world and had many followers. She also loved spending time with her fur baby, Prince, her long-haired rescue cat; Prince helped fill the empty void she felt from her Dad’s passing. She loved gazing at the stars in search of a deeper meaning; she loved to sing and could sing her favourite songs much the same as the artist.
Along with her Mom, Cheyenne is survived by her siblings and nieces and nephews: Daniel Fitzner (Brenda) and children Valerie & Chris; Robin Fitzner and children Alexis, Rebecca (Dwayne) and Lilly Owl—Elia (Greg); Trent Fitzner (Dayna) and children Darius, Darianne, Dennea, Emma, Ivy Rayne; Rene Chevillard and children Azuraena (Diedre), Lorenzo & Atlas (Michelle). Her aunties Freda, Elsie, Laara, Margaret, Linda, Hilda (Godmother), Marissa; her uncles Pat and William; and many, many cousins, too many to list.

And she is survived on her Dad’s side, her Dad’s mom Gramma Irene Fleming; Auntie Cindy Fleming (Craig) and children Brendan (Larissa), Jake (Macayla); Uncle Steven Boryskavich (Joanne) and children Zane (Jenna), Emily; Auntie Christine Tickle and children Katrina (Bobby) and Eric; and cousin Curtis (Tatianna) and children London and Lucas; Gramma Irene’s sisters Janet Bird (Ken) and child Bonnie and son Clayron, Joey Gelley; Clifford Malzenski; Lori Weddall (Chuck), Holly Lussier (Jason), Kari-Ann, Courtney (Adam); Debbie Weselowski (Howard), Jordan Todoruk, Kevyn & Kathryn, Darryl (Barbie); Kerry Fleming (Julie) ; Larry Currie, Bob Currie (Carla) and son Justin, and many other relatives.

Cheyenne was predeceased by her Dad Nathan Boryskavich, her rainbow baby girl Atlanta who was gone far too soon to be born and who she is very happy to be with now. Family on Mom’s side: Granny & Grampa Hilda & Fred Fitzner; Mom’s brothers Uncles twin boys George & John, Phillip, David, Harvey, and Freddie; cousins Paula, Jackie, Katherine, Christopher, Angeline, many rainbow baby cousins born too soon to survive. And her family on her Dad’s side: Grandpa Micheal Boryskavich, auntie Katie Fraser, cousin Christopher Fraser; great gramma Kathryn Fleming, great grampa David Fleming, great auntie Teene Malzenski, great auntie Grace Kowaluk, great uncle Peter Fleming, great uncle David Fleming, great uncle Lloyd Raymond Fleming.

Cheyenne had expressed to her Mom that if anything ever happened to her, she wanted to be cremated like her Dad; she wanted some of her ashes to be with his for eternity. Her family is granting her wish. After services and cremation and once it is safe to travel to Belmont, MB, her family will take her ashes and place some with her Dad. The family is also following the hearse to the place where she will be cremated and wait for her to bring her back home again. At a later date, when it is safe for our big family to gather, we will have a memorial in her honour, to celebrate her life and the love we shared for her.
Because she passed on during the COVID-19 pandemic where no more than 10 people can gather for anything, the family can only allot 9 people to the viewing/wake and 9 people to the service. Boardman Funeral Home is taking care of her services and has graciously set up electronic equipment so that we may have all her beloved family and friends join her family in these two services. She’s the first in this ground-breaking event for Thompson—Cheyenne is making a big impact right to the very end with this technological way for people to still join her. She loved the internet and apps and kept in touch with her all her 1400+ Facebook friends so this new way of having a funeral in spite of this ugly virus certainly befits her.

Because of the cremation, the family has chosen all Cheyenne’s nieces and nephews and all her friends to be honourary pallbearers.
Cheyenne’s services will be at Boardman Funeral Home:
Viewing/wake will be April 20, 2010, at 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Services will be April 21, 2020, at 1 p.m. to 3 p.m
Both will be livestreamed; people must join this page to be able to see the livestream: Cheyenne Boryskavich Services, https://www.facebook.com/groups/1161775470829080/?source_id=166521866865631

If anyone would like to make donations to the family for their travel to cremation and their travel to Belmont and any other funeral expenses, please etransfer to her Mom Lorna at lfitzner@hotmail.com

Cheyenne’s family extend their most heartfelt gratitude for all the kind words of comfort during this difficult time and for the donations given to make everything possible for them. We wish you all to keep safe and healthy during this pandemic and always.

Lorna wishes to share this poem that Nathan wrote and gifted to her years ago, he loved her very much and Cheyenne was borne of that love.

“If you let your heart beat with the strength of the Eagle,
If you let your mind feel the freedom of the Eagle,
Your strength, your mind, and your spirit will be at peace
and be as strong within yourself as the Eagle is.”
~ Nathan Boryskavich

Love and Light to all.

My dear wonderful cherished friend, Hilda, to your beautiful sister Lorna, and Cheyenne's brothers and sisters and everyone who had the privilege of being in Cheyenne's life...As the four directions envelope the world, I am sure Cheyenne's spirit is reaching through to each of you as she is soaring out, above and beyond the confines of this earth. Such a beautiful young woman she gifted her unique touch to each of you.

Rest well my little Ukrainian sister. We never got a chance to have the Ukrainian feast we had planned on doing.
My deepest condolences to Rene and all the Fitzner family.
