Leanne Bartko Obituary

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Leanne Christy Bartko at the age of 55 years. She passed away Wednesday, October 11, 2023, in North Battleford Saskatchewan. Leanne will always be loved and forever remembered by her husband of 23 years, Brad Bartko; children: Shawna Bartko and Ryan Bartko; mother, Carol Heilman; sister, Jackie Rundell (Cyril); brothers: Brad Heilman (Maxine), Bob Heilman, Randy Heilman, and sister, Bonnie Heilman (Natasha); uncle, Terry Heilman (Colleen); aunt, Joyce Wolfe; mother and father-in-law, Julie and Richard Bartko; brother-in-law, Dan Bartko (Trudy); sister-in-law, Jolene Bartko-Rafuse (Nathan); sister-in-law, Kelly Hinderager (KC); many beloved nieces and nephews, as well as close relatives, and friends.

She is predeceased by her father, Ed Heilman; auntie, Annette Heilman; auntie, Doris Robson (Neville); and uncle, Don Wolfe.

Leanne was born and raised in Unity, SK. In her early years, she moved to the Heilman family farm, raising all kinds of farm animals as she completed her schooling in Unity. Leanne attended college for a time, but found her interests lay elsewhere. She later met and married Brad Bartko and became part of a farming family in North Battleford where they planted their roots and raised Shawna and Ryan. Leanne was well loved by many where she grew up, as well as where she settled down. She will be missed beyond words, but always in our hearts.

Leanne had a wide range of hobbies including, fishing, gardening, cooking, raising animals, traveling, and scuba diving to name a few.
