Stephania Nahachewsky was born in a farming family in the Cudworth-Alvena area of Saskatchewan. Her father John Olynyk had emigrated from Mushkativka near Borshchiv in the Austro-Hungary (today in Ternopil' region of Ukraine) as a young man prior to WW1. She moved to Saskatoon as a young adult and finished high school at Bedford Road School. She married Ostap Nahachewsky in 1956.

Stephania has been an active member of St. George’s Ukrainian Catholic church ever since she moved to Saskatoon. She was active in drama productions as a young woman, and in the parish choir for many decades. She raised six sons, Thomas, Andriy, David, Ivan, Taras, Bohdan. She and her sisters assisted Ostap at the O&O Drive Inn in Saskatoon for several decades.
