November 30, 1980 – December 20, 2017
It is with heavy and broken hearts that we announce the sudden and tragic passing of our beloved Kate. She was born into this world with a permanent smile and an extremely kind and compassionate heart. Kate's untimely death has left the family at an unspeakable loss and in deep pain. Kate leaves behind her father Milan known as Mike, mother Ruza, sister Milana with husband Ivan, brother Martin with wife Irina, paternal grandparents, many aunts, uncles and cousins across Canada and in Croatia, along with many friends. Kate will be remembered for her kindness, generosity, thoughtfulness, strong work ethic, courage, determination, love of the arts, and always up for a good story and laugh. We know that her beautiful spirit has risen and that she is walking among the angels. Kate will forever be held tenderly in our hearts and thoughts until we meet again. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, January 4, 2018 at Immaculate Heart of Mary Croatian Parish, 3105 E. 1st. Ave., Vancouver, BC. Entombment to follow at Ocean View Burial Park, South Mausoleum, Burnaby, BC. Condolences may be offered to the family at www.bellburnaby.com. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations to be made towards the BC Cancer Foundation in her loving memory.
