Doris Mae Kiraly (Cheveldave)

October 19, 1940 - February 18, 2015


It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, Sister, Aunt, Cousin and friend, Doris Mae Kiraly (Bubba). Mom Passed away peacefully surrounded and held by all of her children and extended family at Surrey Memorial Hospital.

Mom was predeceased by her dear husband and our father Les (Laszlo) Kiraly, son Steven Kiraly, brother Harry Cheveldave and sister Pat Bencharski.

She is survived by four children and their spouses ( Kevin, Julia & Chris Power, David & Evelyn and Leslie) four grandchildren and spouses ( Jennifer & Joel Comer, Eric, Brian and Liam, and great granddaughter Aspen Mae), sister Marcia & Jack Mawson.  Mom was the second oldest child of her family, born at Brilliant B.C to the late George and Florence Cheveldave. Mom married our father (Laszlo Kiraly) in 1966 at Nelson B.C. where they began to raise family. She worked many years as a Nursing Aid at Willowhaven Private Hospital and went on as a care giver to many families over the years. Mom had a natural ability to care for others as she continued as a nanny, after retiring as a Care Aid Worker.  Most of all, Mom was dedicated to being closer to her immediate family, and eventually moved away from Nelson to the Lower Mainland.

My condolences to Doris’s family. She was a kind caring nurse at Willowhaven and my mom Ann Sodlosky was fond of her. My husband Joe and I went to Doris and Laszlo’s wedding, a year after ours in Nelson. I still remember the yummy borsch.
