Obituary of Ankica Stimac

Stimac, Ankica Surrounded by family, on Sunday, November 10, 2019, after a prolonged illness, Ankica Stimac in her 82nd year passed away peacefully. Beloved wife of Martin Stimac (2005). Loving mother of Mandy and Nick (Marilyn). Adored Baka of Matthew (Jane), Andrew (Tasha), Mitchell and Maddy. Sister of David (Helen), Olga (Ivan), Helen (George 2019). Predeceased by her siblings in Croatia; brothers Mile and Nikola, sisters Mandica, Luja, Kate, Mare and Ruza. Always loved and will be missed by Kate and Frank Majetic. Much loved aunt and great aunt of many nephews, nieces, cousins and relatives in Croatia and Canada. She adored her grandkids and was always there for them, be it by a phone call or when they came to visit where she would spoil them rotten with her cooking and baking. She loved her scratch and win tickets, and when she won, which was often, she would always give the winning tickets to her grandkids. The kids loved going to baka's house. She had a wonderful sense of humour which her friends and family enjoyed whenever they were together. Those that loved and cared for her, were with her right up to the end of her life. Thank you to her wonderful neighbours Carmen and Tony who were there to help her with whatever she needed, to the Thursday coffee group at Westmount Mall and the Monday Bingo group ladies. You know who you are, mom loved your company and always looked forward to being with you. We would also like to thank the nurses, doctors, PSW's and support staff at Victoria Hospital Palliative Care unit (Sixth floor). We are extremely grateful for your compassion and caring.
