HORVATH, LitaPosted: January 27th, 2023
HORVATH Aug. 17, 1934 – Jan. 19, 2023 Lita Horvath has flown directly to heaven leaving behind her sorrows and suffering. Mom is now in the loving arms of Jesus together with her beloved: husband Steve; sons, David Stephen and Alan John; daughter, Della Julia; her parents; and in-laws.
Lita was born in Raymond, Alberta, lived the first part of her life in the farming community of Readymade, moved to Coaldale and Lethbridge in retirement and spent the last fourteen years in Calgary near her eldest daughter and family. Although she had a quiet nature, Lita’s primary career as bank teller gave her contact with many people which she found very enjoyable and satisfying.
Relatives mourning Lita’s passing include: surviving daughter Cathy (Fred) Zinkhofer; sister, Rosemary Bartosek; son-in-law Ken Kunkel; four grandchildren, Stephen Zinkhofer (Emily Nolan), Darrin Zinkhofer, Lindsay and Kenny Kunkel; three great-grandchildren, Addison Kunkel, Esmé Della Zinkhofer and Bailey Della Kunkel; sisters-in-law, Ethel Hanna, Jane Horvath and Mary Perrault; numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins in Czechia.
The many friends Lita made over the years will miss her sense of humour and generosity. Lita loved gift giving, including many offerings of love and friendship from her excellent kitchen.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a charitable donation. A few of Lita’s numerous donees were: Heart and Stroke Foundation, Canadian Cancer Society, Diabetes Canada, Kidney Foundation, War Amps, Salvation Army, Catholic Womens’ League and St. Ambrose Parish.
Funeral Mass will be Celebrated at 1 p.m on Saturday, February 4, 2023 at St. Ambrose Catholic Church, 1513-23rd Avenue in Coaldale, AB. Interment will immediately follow at Mountain View Cemetery, 1210 Scenic Drive South, Lethbridge, AB.
