EVA SAILEROVA With deep sadness we announce the passing of Eva Sailerová on June 29, 2012, in Winnipeg, at the age of 56. Born March 18, 1956 in Czechoslovakia to Eva Richterová and Richard Richter, Eva was the oldest of three children. Eva married her schoolmate Miloslav Sailer on February 29, 1980 in Prague and together raised three sons: Frantisek, Miloslav, and Antonin. Eva completed a PhD in Plant Physiology at Charles University in Prague and worked in a number of related fields following the family's arrival in Canada in 1990. Over the last 10 years she led the radiation safety program at the University of Manitoba. She maintained a close connection to the Czech Republic through her leadership as President of the Winnipeg Branch and National Vice President of the Czech and Slovak Association of Canada. Thank you to the staff of Victoria Hospital and especially Dr. Pacin for their efforts in supporting Eva in her valiant fight against cancer. Eva will be deeply missed by all who knew her. Ahoj. A memorial service will be held on July 10, 2012 at 5:30 p.m. at the Canadian Czech-Slovak Benevolent Association at 154 McKenzie Street, Winnipeg, MB.

- Ich bin sehr erschüttert über den Tod meiner Schulfreundin Eva. Wir hatten eine wunderbare Jugendzeit in Berlin und später auch in unseren wechselnden Trips zwischen Berlin und Prag. Ich habe in den letzten Jahren sehr nach Eva gesucht und bin leider (zu spät) durch diese Nachricht auf Eva gestossen. Mach's gut Eva! Ahoj

- Frantisek, Miloslav, Antonin, and Mila,
My heart goes out to you during this difficult time.
When I met Eva while going to the University of Alberta, I was completely taken by her colorful stories and brilliant, witty sense of humor. She was a source of such great joy for me then, and throughout the years since. I'll never forget her stories about her family back home; her greatest joy was always her boys and her family. No matter what was happening in her life, no matter how busy, no matter what the challenges, Eva always had an open door for friends and celebration.
Eva's wisdom, her loving spirit, and her wonderful positive attitude are only a few of the great gifts she touched our hearts with - she will forever be a powerful force in my life. I hope that knowing the tremendous impact she made on the lives of those around her is in some way a comfort to her family now. Eva will be very dearly missed.

- When Eva and the boys first arrived in Canada, Mila invited me over to their Michener Park apartment in Edmonton. I had my first taste of knedlicki and Czech food. I have wonderful memories of Eva and wish the best for Mila and the three men in this trying time.

Eva was a warm hearted, helpful and caring woman, and I know she will be deeply missed by many people. Rest in Peace Eva.....your pain is over, but your family's has just begun.
