To All the Minnesota Clan of Krivits...

With deep apologies for not finding the time to honor Chick at her passing until now...

The great outpouring of appreciation and caring for her in this format has been wonderful to read.

We too felt her warmth and welcoming for us, whether it was a phone call or a visit to Kamp Krivit. She was a positive, gracious and responsive person, a "people" person.

We admired Chick's big heart in always having an open door for all that came to her house; she and Bill truly created a safe and wholesome place for her kids and their friends, and Family Reunions.

We think of her often with love and appreciation and hope that our families will stay connected into the future.

With much love,

ShyamaBeth and Jerry Friedberg

Dear Cousins: I have wonderful memories of Aunt Chick, but the one that keeps coming back to me is also one of the earliest. It was about 1959 and Uncle Bill and Aunt Chick took us skiing to a resort near Salt Lake City, I believe Alta. I was scared and nervous, and Uncle Bill was particularly kind and attentive to me. Aunt Chick was also, but what I remember best was her in her ski clothes, young and vibrant and smiling. She was beautiful and looked exactly like the beautiful young woman skier in the Coca-Cola commercial! She was happy. She was cheerful. She had a radiant smile and a wonderful laugh. I think I must have thought of her as akin to a movie star! I hope that my path crosses often in the years to come the paths of my Krivit cousins. God bless. Monte Stewart

Dear Krivit Family,
Chick truly was my second mom. I will always have the fondest of memories for her. She always treated me and encouraged me like one of the family. I will miss her dearly. Growing up on the lake was such a rare experience in large part due to your wonderful mother. She taught us to have fun and fortitude. For this I will always be grateful. Loving memories for the past fifty years.

Dear Krivit Family,

Losing a family member is so difficult. Illyana has always admired her grandmother and spoke so highly of her. I was very fortunate to have met Chick on her NY visits. Her love for her family was clear and strong. She was kind and welcoming to me. I know how special it was to Illyana and Ben that she traveled to their wedding. One of my favorite memories from their wedding was when Chick got up to dance. Her spirit and strength moved me.

When I lost a close family member, my closest friend offered me the poem below. Now I offer it to her with deepest sympathy, but hope it can offer some comfort.

God looked around his garden
and found an empty place.
He then looked down upon the earth,
And saw your tired face.

He put His arms around you,
And lifted you to rest.
God's garden must be beautiful,
He always takes the best.

He knew you were suffering,
He knew that you were in pain.
He knew that you would never,
Get well on earth again.

He saw the road was getting rough,
And the hills were hard to climb,
So He closed your weary eyelids,
And whispered, "Peace be thine."

It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you didn't go alone,
For part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.
May the memories of Chick comfort you and love of friends and family carry you through this grief.

Dear Grandma Chick,

Although we didn't know each other for all that long, I felt as though you loved me like one of your own grandchildren. I remember my first visit to Kamp Krivit, I walked in the house and you gave me the biggest hug and said, "Its my number one's number one's number one"...I had no idea what you were talking about! Later that day, you and I sat in the kitchen and I asked for your blessing in my proposal to Illyana. The biggest, warmest smile came across your face and you said how happy it made you that Illyana found her true love. You hugged me and we both had a good cry. Your overwhelming love for Illyana is something that I will carry on in your honor.

I know how important family was to you Grandma, you took a keen interest in everyones' lives and devoted your heart and energy to every single person you cared about. I will cherish every conversation we had, and every moment at Kamp Krivit. I am sad that our time was cut short, and I regret that I never got a chance to meet your husband William. From all of the stories I have heard, I'm sure we would have got along famously!

You will be truly missed by all who knew you. I thank you for loving me as one of your own.

We are saddened by your loss. We both loved your mother very much. She treated us as "her boys" and we enjoyed drinking margaritas with her at your place and sharing stories. She will always have a special place in our hearts.

My dear Niece and Nephews,

My sister is gone and Uncle Bud and I alone remain. But sweet memories fill me with smiles, tears and happiness. I love each of you and remember you as babies, toddlers and adolescents. Your mother was so very proud of you. Now each of you carry on your parent's legacy of serving your fellowman, lifting the downtrodden and cheering each other to the finish line. Always remember that your Uncle Neil and Aunt Velma know who you are and that we love you beyond words. Carry the Heaton and Krivit names with honor.

May God Bless each of you. I love you.

Dear Krivit Cousins,
As I write I am with my mother, Aunt Chick's sister - Velma. So much of our visit has centered on wonderful memories of your mother.

Velma remembers that when WWII ended they knew Garn and Keith would be coming home after 4 years. But no one knew exactly when they would arrive. Chick and Velma had finished shopping in downtown Reno and were driving home. As they got to their street they saw a car down the block in front of their house. They knew immediately that their brothers had arrived. They were so excited they jumped out of the car and ran home leaving the car in the middle of the street. Velma and Chick had many laughs later thinking it would have been much faster if they would have just 'driven' the rest of the way!

My memory with Aunt Chick was going to a Japanese restaurant in SLC. We sat on the floor and they cooked the meal at the table. We were laughing and visiting when Aunt Chick noticed a cockroach going up the wall. I freaked out but Aunt Chick, who had been all over the world, said 'No problem, the food has been sterilized over the fire!' So we ate the meal!!

Uncle Bill was in Boston on business sometime ago and he spent an evening with Clarke and I in our home. From him we learned the details of Bill-Chick's life together. When he left we commented that it is no surprise what remarkable people our Krivit cousins are with parents like that.

Aunt Chick was a 'can-do' forward thinking woman and she always made me feel I could do anything I set my mind to. I knew she loved me and would do anything for me. How I will miss her, her laugh, her confidence, her example, and her love.

We love you dear cousins.

I am sorry to be adding to this guest book late, but due to family issues at home have been delayed. As I hope all will know, I have a special place in my heart for all of the Minnesota based Krivit clan. It was a priviledge and a blessing to have had the opportunity when growing up, to be a part of their very large extended family. Two entries in this guest book struck me as being core to how Chick touched many lives. She truly was one of the best "cheer leaders" kids could have asked for and secondly, a benchmark and role model for how we wanted to raise kids. My prayers for her and always best wishes for the Family

Dear Krivits,
It is so hard to lose your mother and grandmother! I have been thinking of you all. When I heard of Chick's passing I thought right away about how now she is with Bill. In fact, I keep thinking of the two of them playing tennis in the next place.

Love and thoughts,

I feel so blessed to have been able to know grandma Chick. Although our time together was short, her love and kindness will always be remembered. She instantly welcomed me into her home and her family with open arms and a big smile. She was an amazingly generous and thoughtful woman who had so much love to give. I cherish my memories of her and will always be grateful for the time we shared. I was lucky enough to have a long conversation with her last month, after she sent me a beautiful birthday card. When we said goodbye, she told me she loved me and to make sure I take care of her grandson. Chick, I will keep my promise and take care of Sam through these hard times and any others that may come our way!

To the Krivit Family, my thoughts and prayers are with each and every one of you during this difficult time. May the love of those around you help you through the days ahead.

My dearest Grandma,

I have never seen one person love others as much as you did. I don't really know how to put my feelings right now to text... but I believe the best thing to say would be "Thank you”.

Thank you for always believing in me and never giving up on me, even when I may have given up on myself.

Thank you for always making me feel loved, and making me feel so proud to be the number #1 (in order) grandson!

Thank you for “fighting” when most people would have given up, I know it was hard at times to keep going, But I admire your determination to make it to the wedding and to stay healthy.

Thank you for the motivation… when I would call you and tell you how hard I was working, with late nights in the library and working on little sleep. You always told me simply “Good, keeping working, I know you can do it”

Thank you for telling me every time we spoke how proud you and grandpa were of me. The past week I wanted to give up on my work because I was upset. But I heard your voice telling me, to get back to work and NEVER give up.

I promise you, I will always work hard for I want and never give up. This is what you taught me in life and I will honor you by following it the best I can.

You will be missed dearly. I love you with all my heart.
Rest easy my dearest Grandma.

Dan, Mike, Bob, Kim, I sent Dan a card but then mom told me about this guest book. I am remembering Chick introduced us to rare and exotic food combinations like cream cheese, jelly, and bagels. Marinade on steaks and shish kabobs. I think my mom introduced you to things like fried chicken and fried potatoes. What a great neighborhood we grew up in! Could it have been any better? The trampoline, the tether ball matches, four square, water skiing, swimming in the lake with the mucky bottom. If you dropped something in that water - it was gone. Climbing that huge willow tree, GI Joe war games in between the cotton wood trees by the lake. Overnights in the tree house, and the absolute best neighborhood fourth of July picnics with real fire works over the lake. Your mom and dad answered questions for me that my parents didn't have experience in because they never went to college. I always sent a Christmas Card and became so excited for Chick when the address changed to Dr. and Dr. Krivit. I was so happy for her. Now I'm a doctor too. Who would have ever thunk it could be?? The last time I saw her was 2005 when I brought my youngest to visit her because Laura was going to go to Bethel University on the other side of Snelling. We talked about the monstrosity house that replaced our good old farm house - and put your house in a bit of a shadow. Mike was there and Bill was getting some computer help. It was all surreal to be in that wonderful kitchen again. I hope I've brought back more good memories. You really had parents that said, "Whatever you want to become, we are supporting you in that." It doesn't get anymore special than that. Dan, you are always president Dan to me from Frank B. Kellogg. I wish you all comfort in your hearts and peace in your home.

Dear Krivik family,

It is with sadness that I write to extend the Desnick family's sympathies on the loss of Chick. My remembrance of Bill's passion and devotion for Chick are strong - as they were together a team at home and socially. Chick always had the inside info on Bill and was one of his strongest supports. Chick was fun to be with, and always had a candid and thoughtful comment. Bill was always proud of Chick and fully appreciated her efforts as a PNP and as a leader with him in modern healthcare. I enjoyed seeing her last year at the Krivit Lectureships, and now she joins Bill as they ascend to heavenly heights together. We miss them both, and remember all those wonderful moments together as they fostered our careers and loved their kids and grandchildren. With great love to the family, the Bill and Chick era now joins other fond memories of the world's special people.

With love and condolences,

Bob, Julie and Jonathan Desnick

Larry and I wish to offer our condolences to all the Krivit kids. We met Bill and Chick in the early 60's when Bill was treating our daughter Laurie for leukemia. We have stayed in contact all these years and were saddened by Bill's death in 2006. Our son, Kevin, was mentored by Bill when he was in medical school and he later worked for a year with Chick at the Fremont Clinic. He too offers his sympathy. I spoke with Chick last month and had hoped to bring lunch to her, but she said she was just not up to it at that time. Both your parents were such special people and we will never forgot them!

Dear Krivit Family,

A gracious and warm lady was your Mom.

Jeanne and I have been thinking a lot about her and Bill and all you guys the last several days.

For me the memories go back a long, long way. I remember the family gatherings in Deal.

I remember a warm visit as a 22 year old while on my way from one coast to the other.

I remember a summer reunion at Kamp Krivit and another great visit filled with talk of politics and family.

I remember.

Dear Krivit Family,
I am saddened to hear of the passing of Mrs. Krivit. Her kind, loving nature drew many of us to her home, where all felt valued. I know I am not the only one who longed for that unconditional support she so freely gave to us. Many wonderful memories were created in the house on Lake Josephine. The Krivit household is legendary in my mind, setting the standard for how I have welcomed my children's friends into our home. My heart goes out to her family, yet knowing that her spirit will live on through each of you is a joyous blessing. Thank you, Mrs. Krivit, for making this world a better place,
With Great Admiration,

Dear Krivit Family: Chyreel was truly a remarkable person. She played a big part in my life and she will always hold a very special place in my heart. I learned early on from Chyrrel just how important family is and each of you were loved so much. I can't begin to tell you how many hours were spent talking about her family. She was so pround of you. Your mom is now with your dad and they are looking down on you and will watch over you forever. Keep all those precious memories alive. You are on my mind, in my heart and in my prayers.

Dear Grandma -
How do I even begin this note. I am so thankful for all the time we spent together. It's amazing to me how although we lived so far away I feel as though we were as close as any grandmother/granddaughter relationship could be. My memories are so vivid of all our times together. And of course I always had you to remind me of any stories I had forgotten. My first memory is you coming to NY when Sam was born and we were brushing our teeth together and making funny faces in the mirror. Everyone that knows you feels as though you are a mom or grandma to them too. You are the warmest, strongest, most caring and thoughtful person I know. I have lived, and will continue to live, my life to emulate yours. I remember (our famous story) of the "bee sting walk" and picking apples in the front yard while the gnats flew into our eyes and mouth (we were hysterical over that). I can go on forever with the memories of times we shared together. I am so lucky and thankful to have these memories and be able to think about them whenever I want!! You made it to my wedding as you promised and I know you will always be around me throughout the rest of my life to see the course it takes. Together, for as long as I have been coming to MN, we always counted the days together as to when we would see each other again. I know more then anything that we will see each other again! In the meantime I am sure you are watching us all and we will continue to make you proud every second of everyday. I will miss you more then I can even say! I will forever hear your beautiful voice in my head. I love you a bushel and a peck! I know you are around me! Thank you and I love you always and forever - Illyana (#1s #1) oxox
p.s. The Family will always stay strong as this is what you and Grandpa have instilled in us all. I will make sure my dad doesn't work to much, and that Dan is doing well with his new job, and that Mike is okay and I will be there for Kim too with whatever she needs with Willow and life.
p.p.s Tell Grandpa I love him and miss him and that I feel him around me too. Tell him about Ben please, I know he would have gotten a kick out of quizzing him!
always and forever
talk to you soon
love you

Your family has been on my mind this week and I hope all is well with each of you. It's the closing of an "era" when both of our parents are gone. It's sad that our families haven't been able to be together more often, but still, we are family and our love is with you. Your Uncle DeVoe has been gone 27 years almost and I still miss him every day, but I look foward to the time we will be together again. I get to Michigan a couple of times a year as Spencer and Jenni are there (and their twin boys, Seth and Noah). However, Spencer has finished his residency there and will be moving to Baltimore to do another residency at Johns Hopkins so I won't be going to Michigan anymore except for this May and again in July to help them move. When I'm in Michigan I feel like I am practically next door to you. God bless you all in this time of sadness. Hopefully, the wonderful memories will be stronger than the sadness and loss. Love Aunt Pat

To all our Krivit Family,
We want to send our love at this tender time. I remember Aunt Chick's wonderful sense of humor and her genuine concern and care for me. At our last reunion, Aunt Chick and Uncle Bill made me feel like my youngest little boy, Daniel, was a child prodigy for kicking a ball! I definitely remember Aunt Chick's great laugh which reminded me so much of my dad. Reading these entries, it is easy to see that Aunt Chick and Uncle Bill have raised a beautiful family whose love and esteem for them will last forever.
To all my Krivit cousins, if you are ever in Vegas, I would love to see you!

Before I met your parents, Mike, I had NO IDEA that parents could be cool. But one night when we were in junior high, you threw a party, and Liz Elder and I showed up. Your folks were welcoming and supplied great music, snacks, games, wit, and wisdom. They left an impression. And all these years later, without having ever seen them again, I am greatly saddened that they are gone. And still a tiny bit jeolous that they weren't my parents. You all were lucky and blessed. I KNOW your memories will comfort you always. Peace.

Dear Krivit Family,

I was so saddened to read of Chick's passing. We talked frequently on the phone. What an incredible Mom (and Dad) you had! She loved each and every one of you - so very much - and she was so very proud of each of you. I heard many wonderful stories from her about your family. Being without her will be different and difficult. Her phone conversations were such pleasant times for me, I can only imagine how much you will miss them. She will always be remembered at the Ronald McDonald House for her passionate support of your Dad and the House that Love Built.
Our thoughts and prayers will be with each of you as you share so many wonderful memories. Know that you were all wonderful, loving children and grandchildren and that she rejoiced in your love and shared experiences.

My family & I were deeply saddened when we learned that Chyrrel had left this earth. Yesterday we talked about the fun the kids had at "Kamp Krivit". It was my honor & pleasure to know her as a cargiver to my daughter, sons, niece & newphews, a coworker at Fremont Clinic, and most of all a dear friend. I thought of her often, the last time I saw her was at Bill's memorial service and the last words she said to me was "I love you"..I will cherish those words forever.

To my cousins Krivit,
You are in my thoughts and prayers. I was able to talk to Dan tonight and I appreciate him telling me about this website. In case I don't get a chance to talk to you personally. Know that I have great love for your family. Aunt Chick and Uncle Bill have always been so kind and compassionate. What great examples they have been to me and my family. Uncle Bill and Aunt Chick were both so excited when I told them that my daughter Jessika wanted to become a pediatrician. I am sure they are watching and caring as she is now in the second year of her pediatrics residency.

Aunt Chick, I love you and thank you for your loving spirit.

"The frist time I met Chyrrel Krivit"
I was flying in from North Carolina to meet my future wife's family. I remenber walking into the kitchen with all the great smells of food being prepared with snacks and candy everywhere. There were many windows looking out over the lake. I introduced myself as Robert Chase. This little silver haired women truned and looked me and down with those concerned eyes reserved for the likes of a door to door vacume cleaner salesman. But in a moment those concerned eyes truned into warm pools of colored water like the lake outside in the evening just before the sunset. A welcoming smile came upon her face. I extended my hand and she walked toward me. Pushing my hand aside she gave me a big hug and said we do'nt shake hands here we give big hugs. Welcome to camp Krivit she said you can call me chick.(A loving name reserved for her husband Bill.) I looked at her like a deer in the head lights of an on coming car and said I can't call you chick. After some time and my marrage to her daughter Kim I began to call her Mom which had special meaning to me, you see my real mother died when I only was 17. She refered to me with a large grin on her face as her #1 son in law. A title I wore proudly even after I found out that my wife Kim was her only daughter. Chyrrel Krivit had a great sence of humor. Her class, caring, and great generousity to myself and my family and above all her newest grandaughter Willow was so special. I will forever remenber her kind words of encouragement and advice to help in raiseing my daughter. I will really miss her lovely voice singing bed time songs over the phone to help put Willow to sleep. I will also miss the fun and games with mon on vacation and at camp Krivit. However I am happy knowing that she will be reunited with her loving husband Bill and can tell him many Willow stories. So from myself, my wife Kim and my daughter Willow we love you mema a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck. Happy trails to you until we meet again. Love your #1 son in law Robert Chase.

Dear Mom,

I love you with all my heart and soul. My entire being knows you already hear and understand the essence of these mere written, mortal words.

Thank you for all of your love for me and our entire Family. I know I am with you and Dad forever. I know and feel you are both always with with me in my heart and blood. I know also you are both with us as Family.

This entry is my simple, public representation of my deeper and growing prayers for you. It is one of many paths I am traveling to strengthen my love for you.

From your son, I will love you forever.



Dear Family and Friends,

This Guest Book entry is also my heartfelt call to join us in a collective prayer for Mom. Please know that your entries will be read by many, many Family members and friends.

We are all grieving today, tomorrow and for a long time to come. Your words will help us collectively heal and grow our love for Mom and Dad as part of a larger community of Family and friends.

Thanks in advance for sharing your words with us and with Mom.
