Hi Mohammed,
As far as I know, you will need your password to decrypt the address.
Anyway, you should use the site. Please see our guide to creating a paper wallet securely, as the same security procedures will apply to dealing with your privkey:

How to Create a 99.9% Secure Bitcoin Paper Wallet

Once booted to an offline machine in a Live OS, you may proceed to use the downloaded site to “Validate” your privkey. See here for further details:
