November 10, 1914 – March 10, 2010
A wonderful, truly kind and sweet person, Annie Krivy, passed away on Wednesday, March 10, 2010 at the age of 95 years. Annie was born in Bellevue, AB, the eldest of four sisters. In January, 1933 at the age of 18 she married Joe Krivy in Calgary. During the ensuing years, she became well known by many in Calgary for her sewing skills which she continued until she was 92 years of age. Annie was always very active in the Slovak community, their organizations and assisting with the arrival of immigrants from Czechoslovakia. Joe died in 1992 after 59 years of marriage. She continued to reside at their home for another 15 years with her cats, driving everywhere (until 90), sewing and travelling. Slowly, her eyesight eroded and in 2007 she entered Southwood Care Centre to be near her sister Katie.
Her loss will be deeply mourned by her four children, Frances (Chuck) Purchase of Rockwood Ontario, Joanna Becker, Gary Krivy and Sharon Krivy all of Calgary. She also leaves four grand daughters, Anna Marie Becker, Leslie Becker, Nicole (Tony Bulhao) Purchase and Andrea (Ed) Sceviour. In 2007 her first great grandchild was born, Declan Sceviour, followed by Braxton Sceviour and Maxliam Bulhao this year. Annie is also survived by her sister Josephine Uhlir of Hacienda Heights California and her brother Lawrence (Sharon) Matusik of Calgary. Annie was predeceased by her husband Joe, her daughter Joanna’s husband Ed Becker (2000) and her sisters Verona Smee (2003) and Katie Perozak (2009). Our thanks to the wonderful staff at Southwood Care Centre who looked after Mother and her family doctors, Dr. G. Haywood and Dr. T. Cran who were always there for her. Her final two weeks were spent at Rockyview Hospital with the very special Dr. A. Tupper and Dr. B. Simmons and staff on Unit 83.
