KUBICEK, Ida

April 23, 1939 – Perugia, Italy
December 16, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta

It is with immense sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, wife and Nonna, Ida Kubicek on December 16, 2014 at the age of 75 years. She passed away peacefully surrounded by her family, after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease.

Ida was born in Monteleone Di Spoleto, Perugia, Italy in 1939. She immigrated to Canada, with her family, in 1952. Ida married George in 1963 and devoted her life to their children and grandchildren. Her culinary skills were exemplary. Her baking and meals will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved her. She also enjoyed gardening and would start her plants from seeds, nurturing them until they were the most beautiful in the neighborhood. Ida was devoted to her family and she was never happier than when the whole family was together.

She will be eternally loved and remembered by her husband of 51 years, George; her children, Lynette (Rob) Bueckert, Terry (Marcello) Vona and Ron (Spryng) Kubicek; her cherished grandchildren, Olivia, Nicole, Mitchell, Jeffrey, Alyssa, Kyle and Holland; her devoted sisters, Ines (Angelo) Fiorentini and Anna (Mirko) Pockar; sisters in law, Silvana Monden and Cecelia (Joe) Busetto; cousin Bianca (Ivo) Cinel; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Ida was predeceased by her parents Oliva and Giovanni Monden and her brother Tony Monden.

Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Luke’s Catholic Church (Corner of Northmount Drive & Northland Drive N.W.) on Monday, December 22, 2014 at 10:30 a.m. A Graveside Service will follow at Queen’s Park Cemetery. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. If friends so desire, the family respectfully requests donations may be made directly to The Alzheimer’s Society of Alberta (10531 Kingsway Ave, Edmonton, Alberta, T5H-4K1) or the Make a Wish Southern Alberta (Suite 4-2308 24th Street S.W., Calgary, Alberta, T2T-5H8). The family would like to thank the staff at the Brentwood Care Center for their kindness and compassion during this difficult time.

God saw you getting tired,
The cure was not to be.
So He closed His arms around you
And whispered “Come with me.”
You suffered much in silence
Your spirit did not bend
You faced your pain with courage
Until the very end.
You tried so hard to stay with us
Your fight was all in vain
God took you to His loving home
And freed you from all pain.
Never does a day go by
That I don’t think of you
A lump forms deep within my chest
And tears begin to flow
So many times I’ve needed you
To talk, to share, to laugh
If love could have saved you
You never would have died
-Anonymous

In living memory of Ida Kubicek, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Crowfoot, 82 CROWFOOT CIRCLE N.W. Telephone: 403-241-0044.

    Our sincere condolences to you and your family. Your mom was a very special person. Noel and I loved seeing your parents going for their walks. They would always stop for a visit with us.
