History
DONOR'S FATHER'S UNCLE, GEORGE CLIRJAK, WAS THE ORIGINAL OWNER OF THE BED. CLIRJAK WAS BORN IN KALO SEMEN HUNGARY IN 1900. IN 1929 HE IMMIGRATED TO LETHBRIDGE IN SEARCH OF A BETTER LIFE. CLIRJAK FOUND A JOB IN THE MINES AND WORKED THERE UNTIL 1955. AT THAT TIME HE MOVED TO CALGARY AND PURCHASED A THREE STORY ROOMING HOUSE WHICH HE OPERATED UNTIL HIS DEATH IN 1981. HE WAS BROUGHT BACK TO LETHBRIDGE AND BURIED IN MOUNTAIN VIEW CEMETERY. CLIRJAK WAS NEVER MARRIED. THE BED WAS ORIGINALLY PURCHASED IN LETHBRIDGE AND TRAVELED WITH HIM TO CALGARY. WHEN CLIRJAK PASSED AWAY, THE DONOR'S PARENT'S, JOHN AND KLARA CLIRJAK, INHERITED THE BED ALONG WITH OTHER ITEMS. THEY NEVER USED THE BED AND STORED IT IN THEIR BASEMENT. IN 1999 THE BED WAS GIVEN TO THE DONOR FOR HER SPARE ROOM. THE BED WAS OCCASIONALLY USED BY THE DONOR'S SON WHEN HE CAME FOR A VISIT.
