Lovdjieff, Tereza
Tereza Divald Lovdjieff - Huerfano World - October 20, 1994 - Tereza Divald Lovdjieff Dies - Mrs. Tereza Divald Lovdjieff, age 91, died suddenly the evening of Tuesday, September 27th, in a nursing home in Englewood, Colorado. Her birth took place on March 15, 1903, in the Slavonian village of Petrijevci, Croatia, near the city of Osijek. She was the eldest of five surviving daughters among the eleven children born to Stjepan and Maria Divald. In her adolescence she often accompanied her father after he lost a leg in a factory accident in Osijek when they entered nearby forests to cut wood for sale in the village. At the time of her eighteenth birthday she was enroute alone from Yugoslavia to the southern Colorado coal mining camp of Tabasco, near Ludlow, Las Animas County. She arrived around the end of March 1921 at the home of Steve and Ana Fumich to help with the household work which included three Bulgarian boarders. She and Ana Jakovats Fumich were second cousins, but addressed the older woman as Teta (aunt), and the husband as Tetak (uncle). On May 12, 1921, she and the Bulgarian Chris Nenoff Lovdjieff were married at the Holy Trinity rectory in Trinidad. The marriage upset the Fumiches as well as respective families in the old country because of the Catholic and Orthodox difference. But neither Tereza nor Chris ever took church membership or attendance seriously; both were always wary about ecclesiastical politics, internal or external. Their first four children were born between 1922 and 1924, and were baptized in Orthodox churches in Pueblo, the same godfather for all, beloved Mladen (Big Mike) Parvanoff. The fifth child, Joan, born in 1934, was baptized at St. Mary's, Walsenburg, the same godfather. The childless Fumiches forgot all about the religious question and doted on all the children, consistently devoted and generous with all of them throughout the years. Mrs. Lovdjieff was the mother of Crist Lovdjieff, Mary (Ken) Stoecklin, Nick (Evelyn) Lovdjieff, Catherine Hartman, and Joan (Louis) Aldretti, and is survived by eleven grandchildren and thirteen great-grandchildren.
