Krigovsky, Mary

Mary Veronica, beloved sister and best friend of Anne, peacefully passed away at the Bow View Manor after a courageous, long battle with cancer on June 26, 2004.

A long-time resident of Calgary and Southern Alberta, Mary worked many years for the Dept. of Environment (Weather) Calgary until her retirement. Mary was a happy, considerate person and her values encompassed love and loyalty to family and her close circle of friends. A great cook/hostess, she also loved musical concerts, sewing, gardening and travel to the mountains and places of interest in the city and spend quality time with family and friends, both number one on her list of importance. Although plagued by ill health over the last twenty years, she always looked ahead to a better tomorrow. “I’m fine!” always her standard answer. She will be missed by all for her buoyant, honest personality–no affectations here–just truth, joy and good cheer. She was predeceased by her dear parents and a number of relatives and friends in U.S., Canada and Czechoslovakia. Besides her loving/caring sister Anne, thanks to her special cousin, Fran (U.S.A.), very special friends Amy, Murray, Hazel, Doris and Don and an old, dear school friend Mrs. Ann McMillan (Medicine Hat) as well as far-away B.C. friends Nina, Helen and others who played such an important part in her life. Thanks, to the staff of the Foothills Hospital, the caring Tom Baker Centre and lastly the treatment by the staff of the Bow View Manor. Thanks also to her doctor Dr. Patrick Lai, for his kind care. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Tom Baker Cancer Centre (Breast Research) 1331 – 29 Street NW, Calgary, AB T2N 4N2 Telephone: (403) 944 – 2433 or to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Alberta, 1825 Park Road S.E., Calgary, AB T2G 3Y6 Telephone: (403) 264-5549,

One or the other must leave

One or the other must stay

One or the other must grieve

That is forever the way.

Braving what had to be borne

Hiding the ache in the heart.

One, how so ever loved

First must be summoned away,

That is the will of the Lord

One or the other must stay.

Graveside Service will be held at Queen’s Park Cemetery on Wednesday, June 30, 2004 at 10:30 A.M.. To forward condolences go to
