It is with heavy hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of our mother, Marija on December 21, 2020 at Arbour Creek Care Centre at the age of 81. Reunited with her beloved husband of 53 years, Anton Sverko (2014). Cherished mother of Veronica Cocco and her husband Domenic, and Ivan Sverko. Adored Baka of Nicholas and Diandra Cocco.
Will forever live on in the hearts of her sisters, Katarina (Marko) Drazenovic of Hamilton, Ont., Mira (Dusko) Franolic and Darija Naranca of Croatia. Also loved by her sister-in-law, Ana Sverko in Croatia. Predeceased by her brother, Mate Naranca, brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Marija, Ivan, Alberto, Mate and Jakov and Stefani Sverko. Fondly remembered by her nieces and nephews in Canada, Grace Sverko, Rosy Sverko, Ed (Catherine) Sverko and Maryann (Ron) Garchinski and by many nieces and nephews in Croatia and Europe.
Marija was born in Split, Croatia and emigrated halfway around the world twice with her beloved Anton, first to Australia in 1961 where Veronica and Ivan were born, and then to Canada in 1967 where Mom and Dad built a wonderful life for us. Marija was a kind, loving and selfless woman with a heart of gold. She had a passion for cooking and baking her Croatian specialties to share with family and friends. She had a special bond with her grandchildren who were her pride and joy. She had a deep faith in God and in the power of prayer, especially the Rosary.
We send warm thanks to the care workers and staff at Arbour Creek for their care and compassion for the last five years and their heroic efforts during this pandemic. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, a private family service will be held, followed by interment at Our Lady of the Angels Cemetery, Stoney Creek. "Počivaj u Miru Božjem"
