Mrs. Chervanick was born on Nov. 1, 1929, in Czechoslovakia to Joseph and Emilie Cech. Due to the post war chaos, she was moved to Austrian D.P. Camp, and from there to Germany where she met and married S.G.M. Albert J. Chervanick. He brought her to his hometown Shamokin, PA, while he served one year in Vietnam. Aside writing daily letters to him, she got to know all her new relatives and acquired her U.S. citizenship; after returning from Vietnam, they went back to Frankfurt, Germany and in 1973 came to retire in Fort Hood to make their home in Killeen.

Mrs. Chervanick was an inactive member of the Killeen Volunteer Fire Department, supporting the T.S.T.A. and animal shelters.
