Forever in the heart of her only surviving sibling, Ankica Pečnik. She will fondly be remembered by her many nieces, nephews and family in Canada, Croatia, Australia and the U.S.

Marica was a warm-hearted wife, mother, sister, and grandmother who brought endless love into the hearts she touched during her journeys from Croatia to Canada. She adored her family, in particular, her 2 granddaughters who were her life.
