KRISA, Sophie

January 17, 1923 – September 9, 2012

It is with great sadness and sorrow that we announce the passing of Sophie Krisa on Sunday, September 9, 2012 at the age of 89 years.

Born and raised in Jurowce, Ukraine, Sophie immigrated to Canada in 1948. Soon after, she married her husband Josef Krisa and raised their three children. She was a hard worker, a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother and enjoyed raising her family. Sophie was well loved and adored by her family and many friends and will be dearly missed. She is survived by her loving children, Helena (Paul Farion), Michael (Debbie Elle), and Daniel, as well as her five grandchildren, Tiffany, Jessica and Blake Farion, and David and Rachel Krisa. She was predeceased by her loving husband Josef on November 7, 2002 and by her brothers Adam and Stefan Fedak.

Those wishing to pay their respects may do so at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Park Memorial Chapel (5008 Elbow Drive S.W. Calgary, AB) on Wednesday, September 19, 2012 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Relatives and friends are invited to Prayers and Tributes at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Park Memorial Chapel on Thursday, September 20, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. with visitation prior to and after prayers.

    You are the best child a mother could wish for. No one could have cared for your mom better than you did. She is likely smiling down on you right now and always will be. Be well in this time of sadness.
