November, 2013 Obituaries

 Rest in Peace Rick Craven

     Like many in Sugar Creek, the staff of the Sugar Creek Herald was saddened to learn of the passing of Rick Lee “Fingers” Craven, who died at his home November 5 at the age of 62.

    Rick had just retired a little over a month ago from his job at the Clay County Correctional Center.  His true love was playing the piano.  Rick was widely known as a master pianist, and over the years played backup keyboards for Jerry Lee Lewis, Conway Twitty, and other nationally known recording artists.

   His family suggests donations to the Alzheimer’s Foundation.  The Herald staff takes comfort from the fact that Rick did not personally suffer from this disease.  His talent, wit, and friendliness will never be forgotten by those who knew him.

 Anna Berislavich Laid to Rest

   The City of Sugar Creek and the Herald staff offer condolences to the family of Anna (Pollo) Berislavich, who passed away at the age of 93.  She was a lifelong resident and a lifetime member of St. Cyril’s Alter Society, and she will be remembered and missed by all who knew her.  Her family suggests contributions to the Catholic Community Hospice in Overland Park.
