Charlotte Barbara Lehovitch (nee Prince)
September 16, 1957 – February 18, 2021
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a wonderful wife, mother, nana, sister and friend. Mom passed away peacefully at the St. Francis hospice in the early morning hours of Thursday February 18th, 2021 after a long battle with cancer; surrounded by her loving husband, family and extraordinary hospice staff.
Mom will be tremendously missed by her husband Ken of 44 years, her four-legged companion Nugget, her four children: Clint (Sarah), Chris (Heather), Kelly and Kayla (Jesse). Loving nana to her four grandchildren: AJ, Willow, Tyson and Eve.
Charlotte is pre-deceased by her father Benny Prince (1975) and will be sadly missed by her mother Irene Mask (Tom), her brother Ricky (Greta) and sisters Brenda Sabatine (Brian) and Joyce Prince (Pat – 2018) as well as numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
Mom was immensely proud of her family, and leaves behind nothing but beautiful memories and love.
The Day God Took You Home
A million times
I've needed you
A million times I've cried,
If love alone
Could have saved you
You never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place,
No one else can ever fill.
It broke my heart to lose you,
But you didn't go alone
Part of me went with you,
The day God took you home.
Saying thank you is such a simple sign of appreciation, but it seems so inadequate when you try to express the gratitude we have towards so many people for what they did for mom. Dr. Gertler, Dr. Awan and their team, as well as Dr. Cybulski and most recently the compassion and care of Dr. Malinowski. A thank you also goes to Fr. Pawel Ratajczak at St. Hedwigs parish and the Heubner funeral home.
As per moms personal wishes a private service will be held at Heubner funeral home. Special acknowledgment to the entire team at the MV Hospice Palliative care for providing a comforting, caring and supportive atmosphere throughout her final journey. The family is requesting donations in memory of Charlotte Lehovitch to MV Hospice Palliative care in lieu of flowers.
Mom now rests in peace with her loving God. May she be remembered as the kind, loving and caring person she was.
We love you.
