PIROSKA FEKETE

FEKETE, PIROSKA

JANUARY 16, 1940 ~ SEPTEMBER 8, 2015

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our dear mom Piroska (Perry) Fekete. Mom’s journey started

in Kemecse, Hungary, a small farming community. Instead of marrying she decided school was best. She complete her RN program at a school of nursing in Budapest. Perry married her husband Istvan (Steve) Fekete in Budapest

and courageously moved to Canada without knowing any English. Leaving behind a large number of close family members that were greatly missed. Perry moved to the big city of Vancouver, BC where she started her own family. They eventually settled in the small town of Princeton, BC where she worked as a L.P.N. at Princeton General Hospital. She made a new family here and some life long friends. While residing here in Kelowna, BC she did what she loved best, her biggest achievement, her grandchildren, “Children are often spoiled because no one will spank Grandma!”. Perry is survived by her children Andrea (Mario) Vucinovic, Barbara (John) Leinemann and Stephen Fekete; grandchildren Leyland Vucinovic, Amelia Vucinovic, Jakob Leinemann, Jonah Leinemann (predeceased 2006) and Jay Leinemann. In lieu of flowers please consider a small donation to the KGH Foundation, child care fund in her name (Piroska Fekete). An appreciation goes out to Vladka and Darko Vucinovic who helped get our mom to some of her appointments. Perry touched the hearts of many including William and Daniel Low (grandchildren to Vladka and Darko). A huge thank you to all the doctors and nurses that cared for our mom through this final chapter of her journey. From the cancer clinic to the kind doctors and helpful nurses on 6 West. A special thank you to Anne Malone and Kay Garton who were more than willing to do the night shift and spend the final moments with our mom. It means a lot. A Celebration of Life will be held at the Eldorado, September 20, 2015 from 1 pm ~ 4 pm, 500 Cook Road, Kelowna, BC. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.valleyviewfuneralhome.com
