October 6, 1965 – February 4, 2019
It is with deep sorrow that our family announces the peaceful passing of Sharka Svajgr at the age of 53 years.
She is survived by her husband Daniel–semicolon– daughter Celleste–semicolon– parents, Hilda and Josef Coufal–semicolon– brother, Milan (Alena)–semicolon– nephew, Mick, and niece Kate. She was also cherished by her stepchildren, Dawn (Brad), Angela (Jeff, Aysia, Mackenzie) and Benjamin (Young, Joy).
She was predeceased by her father, Zdenek in the Czech Republic.
Sharka had a very unique personality that endeared her to anyone she met. She loved fashion and travel. Sharka will be dearly missed by her many close friends, co-workers and patrons of Bistro Praha Restaurant–semicolon– friendships that reached all over the world and never faded from her attention. She will always be remembered for her beautiful smile, laughter and warm heart.
The family would like to express their sincere thanks to the U of A Hospital Oncology team and the caring doctors and nurses of the Royal Alex and Edmonton General Hospitals.
A Funeral Service to celebrate Sharka’s life will be held on Monday, February 11, 2019 at 4:30 p.m. at McDougall United Church, 10086 Macdonald Drive NW, Edmonton.
