It is with deep sadness and great loss that we announce the passing of our mother and grandmother on Wednesday October 10, 2007 at the age of 81 years.
Anna was born in Roznava, Slovakia (Czechoslovakia) and came to Calgary in 1968 with her husband Frantisek (who predeceased her in 1996) and two young sons. She was a successful restaurateur well known in Calgary for her Hungarian cooking at the famous Tokay Restaurant, which the family operated for more than thirteen years since 1973, as well as for her guest appearances at the Gypsy Bistro more recently. Anna was completely dedicated to her family’s wellbeing and happiness and brought joy and inspiration to everyone that knew her.
Anna will be lovingly remembered by her devoted sons and daughters-in-law Laszlo (Alda), Tibor-Peter (Lieselotte), as well as grandson Mathew. Anna is also survived by her sister Maria (Laszlo) and their daughter Katherine; her brother Stefan in Roznava, Slovakia; and her nieces and nephews Stefan and wife Elenora of Roznava, and Marika and husband Gabor of Brno. Sister Katalin of Roznava predeceased Anna.
