Betty Glen of Lundbreck, sister-in-law DuWayne Tivadar of Lethbridge and by many wonderful nieces and
nephews. She was predeceased by her husband Steve Tivadar; parents Steve and Mary Petek; brother Stefan Petek;

Petek; brother Frank Petek and sister-in-law Yutta Brown; brothers-in-law Don Glen, Joe Tivadar and great
grandson Anthony Joevenazzo. Mary was born on January 13, 1926 in Lipa, Yugoslavia, the first child of Steve and Mary Petek. She immigrated to Canada in 1933 with her mother, joining her father in Vauxhall. The family set down roots and Mary started school at New West District. She worked as her father¹s hired hand until she moved to Lethbridge to ³try it² on her own. She worked at the hospital in the kitchen, then decided the city wasn¹t for her and returned to work on the family farm. She loved working outside. Mary met Steve when he
came to the farm to purchase some pigs. They immediately connected and were married on January 22, 1949. They bought a farm in Glenwood a few years later and were raising their five children and expecting their sixth. On a summer¹s day in July 1961, the unimaginable happened. Steve lost his life in a plane crash. In the spring of 1962, Mary sold the farm and moved her family to Lethbridge. There she created a wonderful, loving home for her children. She had wonderful neighbors and lived in her home until she was eighty three. Mary was passionate about her garden and her flowers. She made the best Chicken Noodle soup and was famous for her chocolate chip cookies. She was less famous for always having at least six vegetables on her dinner table. She made beautiful paper tole creations for her family. Mary loved to dance and would take on anyone in a round of mini golf. She had great faith and was a devote member of St. Basil¹s Catholic Church for fifty three years.
Mary loved her people. She had wonderful girlfriends Pearl, Doreen, Katie and Ella. They spent many Saturdays doing lunch, dinner and a movie. Her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren were her greatest joy. She was everyone¹s biggest cheerleader. She left this world surrounded by family while stories were told, laughs were shared and tears were shed. She will be missed but we are so happy she is with her one great love.
If friends so desire, those wishing to make a contribution are encouraged to send flowers in honour of Mary¹s love for gardening.
Mary lived out the last year of her life at Legacy Lodge. The family wish to extend their heartfelt
thanks to the staff there for all their understanding, care and compassion. They were AMAZING. Thanks to
her We Care gals who never failed to make her day brighter.
