OBITUARY - ANNA BATA SLAVIK

Anna BATA SLAVIK was born October 10, 1902 in Czechoslovakia. She was the oldest child of John and Anna BATA. Anna came to America at the age of three. The family lived in Cainsville, Missouri, and later moved to Oregon and finally to the Diagonal Bohemian community.

On November 15, 1924, Anna was united in marriage to John SLAVIK in Diagonal. Together they farmed and raised seven children. As the children were growing up, Anna helped in the fields by riding the binder when oats and wheat were ready to cut. She always had a big garden and did lots of canning. She enjoyed her flowers and was generous with them. Anna was also an excellent seamstress and made all the clothing for her family from patterns she created after seeing styles in catalogs. Anna's greatest joy was her family.

After John died in September of 1965, Anna spent several winters with her sister, Agnes, in Sacramento, California. On June 3, 1994, Anna came to live at Clearview Home in Mount Ayr where she died on June 12, 2000 at the age of 97.

Anna was preceded in death by her parents and her husband John: ten siblings, John, Joe, Mary, Bessie, Stan, Jim, Albert, Frank, Paul and Jerry; three grandchildren; and son-in-law Elvis HUNT.

Left to cherish her memory are her children Rose HUNT of Redding, Iowa, Mildred BRIGGS and husband Jack of Tucson, Arizona, Jean SCHLAPIA of Ames, Iowa, Lonnie SLAVIK and wife Marilyn of Memphis, Tennessee, Frank SLAVIK and wife Marilyn of Rogers, Arkansas, Stan SLAVIK and wife Judy of Omaha, Nebraska and Jim SLAVIK and wife Colleen of Princeton, Missouri: 30 grandchildren; several great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren; sister Agnes BESSON of Sacramento, California; many nieces, nephews, and friends.

She will be sadly missed by her family and all who knew and loved her.

Services were held at the United Church of Diagonal Thursday, June 15, 2000. Officiating was Rev. Pam FARREN and Judy NEWTON was the organist. Casket bearers were Robert HUNT, Larry HUNT, Daryl SCLAPIA, Richard HUNT, George HUNT and David SCHLAPIA.

Anna was laid to rest at Bohemian Cemetery in Diagonal, Iowa.
