Dates of existence


Joseph Zigman (“Joe”) Skwara, born in Krydor, Saskatchewan, on 6 January 1916; one of nine children born to Frank and Polly Skwara. Stella Florence Millich was born in the Orolow district on 7 August 1919; the youngest of seven children born to Mary and Frank Millich.
Joe and Stella married in 1945, and together they farmed in the Borden area from 1945 to 1983. They had two daughters. Joe and Stella retired to Borden in 1983, where Joe died in 2005. Stella died in 2012.
Their property included NW ¼ -16-41-9 W3rd – the homestead quarter, and the site of the family house and yard; SW ¼ -17-41-9 W3rd – quarter section purchased by Joe Skwara, likely at the same time as the homestead quarter, ca. 1944; and NE ¼ -5-44-8 W3rd – a quarter section located near Krydor, Saskatchewan, adjacent to land where Joe Skwara’s father homesteaded at the turn of the 20th century. Joe Skwara acquired this land from his mother [before 1944] and sold it, around 1960. He was then able to buy SE ¼ -17-41-9 W3rd, adjacent to his other property near Borden.
