Krystyna will be sadly missed by her loving husband of forty-two years Leszek; her children and their spouses, Maggie and Greg, Chris and Brooke; her brother and his family in Edmonton; and a sister and two brothers and their families in Poland.

  1. We were so sorry to hear of Krystyna’s passing. How well I remember meeting your family when Kris and Michael were only about 4 years old! The fact that Kris had little English didn’t matter to them! Throughout the years, our family was blessed by 10 exchange students and Ashli spent an unforgettable semester in Brazil thanks to Krystyna’s efforts.
    She will be sadly missed.

    Although we knew Krystyna for a short while, we found her to be a kind and generous person. We would enjoy her brief visits and our daughter Clare loved the chocolates and treats she would often leave behind. She was a wonderful neighbour and will be missed. To the family, May God and his grace be with you at this time.

    We are so sorry for your loss. Krystyna was a gem. We met her through Matthew’s exchange to Brazil. We then hosted several students. She was so good with the students that came to Calgary always going the extra mile making sure everyone was settled. She was so proud of all of you. She loved travelling the world and we loved to hear her stories. Sorry we were not able to attend the celebration of her life. She touched many people with her kindness and generosity.
