On the evening of Friday, May 19, 2023, Stana Mikan passed away at age 86. She was preceded in death by her husband Josip, her father Jozo Badrov, her mother Ruza, her brothers, Ivan, Anto, Frano, and Martin and her sisters Mara and Anja. She is survived by her three children, Joseph Jr., Anna (Ean) and Ivan (Lili); her grandchildren, Damian, Emilija, Matthew, Alena and Leo; several cousins, nieces and nephews.
Stana was born on April 17, 1937 in Livno, Croatia. In 1964, she boarded the Queen Mary to start a new life in her beloved Chicago, IL. She met Josip in the Bridgeport neighborhood while working at a diner, married him in 1966 and Josip helped her become a US Citizen in the early 1970s.
Stana loved cooking, laughing, baking, drinking strong coffee and petting her dogs Woody and Goldie. She was proud of her Croatian Heritage and rarely missed an opportunity to visit with friends at the Croatian Cultural Center. Her faith in Jesus Christ and love of Gospa was the foundation of her family. She was a devout Catholic, wife and mother. Stana always placed family first and was most proud of raising her children and grandchildren. She is loved by her family and friends and will be dearly missed.
A funeral mass will be celebrated by Rev. Fr. Drazan Boras.
