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.

Most of all, Mom was dedicated to being closer to her immediate family, and eventually moved away from Nelson to the Lower Mainland.
