It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Ivka Ursa. She was a devoted daughter, caring sister, loving wife and nurturing mother. She was caring, compassionate and always supportive. A person of deep faith who had a passion for life, she always had a positive and kind word to share. Her gentle spirit and warm heart touched the lives of all who knew her. Her memory will forever be a source of strength and inspiration.
She was cherished and will be dearly missed by her children John and Mary (Mike). Predeceased by her late husband Tadija (Ted). Survived by brother Božo (Kata) and sister Anica (predeceased Vlado) and sisters and brothers in law, nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, cousins, and dear friends in Canada, USA, Croatia and Bosna Hercegovina.
Family was at the center of Ivka’s world. Though we grieve her loss, we are grateful for the precious moments we shared with her and the lasting impact she had. Ivka possessed a zest for life, she adored music and singing (member of CCCS choir), walking, gardening and golfing with the Youthful Seniors, travelling and socialising with family and friends. She may no longer be with us in person, however, her spirit lives on in the love and cherished memories we hold dear. May her soul find enteral peace, and may her legacy continue to touch the lives of many.
