Obituary Overview

Remembrance of Anne


Suddenly on June 23, 2017 Anica Zokvic passed away at Seven
Oaks Hospital.  

Anica was born and raised in Croatia, and then after a brief stay in Germany,
came to Canada in 1969 with husband Steve and daughter Carol.

Throughout her life, Anica was focused first and foremost on family, followed
closely by cooking and baking.  Some of her most joyous times were spent
preparing for her next opportunity to feed her kids or grandkids - whether they
were hungry or not.  Following several spinal cord surgeries in the 1980s,
her mobility significantly declined - but her spirit could not be broken.
 She was determined to live life with as much passion and fun as possible,
until her memory started going in 2010.  But despite that new challenge,
Anica continued to offer up whatever food or snack was available to others
before considering them for herself.  This selflessness was evident right
up to the day before her passing.

Anica was very proud of her Croatian heritage and committed to her Catholic
faith.

Anica is loving remembered by husband Steve, son
Steven (Tammy), and the pride and joy of her last 13 years - grandchildren Emma
and Alex.  She was predeceased by a newborn son in Croatia and daughter
Carol in 2006, along with both her parents.  She also leaves behind family
in MB, ON, BC, AB, Croatia, Germany and Australia.  

The family would like to sincerely thank the staff of Maples Personal Care Home
(where she resided the past 3 years).  Please know that you are making a difference
to families during some of their toughest moments in life and can't be thanked
enough.


Grandma, we love and miss you.  Please know that you will always be in our hearts.  

Love Emma and Alex
