Vlasta Angela Ravlic-Stach died peacefully in her sleep at her family home of 65 years. Vlasta was born in Rock Springs, Wyo., to John and Angelina Ravlic, who were Croatian immigrants.
Two years later she was joined by her sister, Nada. Upon the death of her father, toddler Vlasta and infant Nada moved with their mom to Salmon, Idaho to join grandmother Antonia, uncle John and aunt Catherine on the family farm.
She grew up in Salmon until her sophomore year, when the family needed her to quit school to work on the farm full time. In her early 20's, Vlasta worked as a telephone operator for Mt. States Telephone in Salmon and then Boise, Idaho.
She transferred to Portland, Ore., and met her future husband Joseph S. Stach. They met at the Chancellor Club where she asked Joe to dance. Joe and Vlasta were married June 12, 1954 at St. Mary's Cathedral in Portland on Rose Festival Parade Day. They settled in Goldendale, Wash., for one year and then moved to Portland, permanently where they raised four children in S.E. Portland.
Vlasta became a home maker, an avid gardener, baker and canner. She was best known for her apple bars, berry crisps, cinnamon rolls, canned green beans, and Povetica (Croatian nut bread). Another inspiring fact, at the age of 58, she decided to get her GED and got straight A's. Vlasta loved people, conversation, her faith and family.
She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Joseph; sister, Nada DeVries and son-in-law, Randall Huey. She is survived by her daughters, Nadine Huey and Cynthia Stach; sons, Raymond (Patsy) Stach and Brian Stach; grandsons, Michael (Amanda) Stach and Christopher (Brittany) Stach; granddaughters, Vanessa Huey and Jade (Jordyn) Van Atta and great-grandson, Stefan Stach.
