Passed peacefully away at RPH aged 84 years. Dearly loved wife of Vice (dec). Loving sister of Father Chokolich (dec), Stanko (dec), Stipe (dec), Iva, Ante and families. No more worrying and now resting peacefully in God's safe caring hands. Reunited with Vice, her brothers and parents Jaka and Luka.
Very special thanks to all the doctors and nursing staff at RPH and the caring staff and management of the Midland Nursing home for all your care, friendship and love shown to Maria over the past 6 years.
My dearest loving sister. The memories of you will remain in our hearts forever. You were a wonderful, caring sister and my best friend. We will all miss you dearly. Moja seka RIP. Your loving sister Iva, brother-in-law Ivan, Nick, John and Melissa.
Our dear Teta Maria, you were like a mother to us. We will always remember and cherish those good old days at Maida Vale, especially during the school holidays staying with you and Barba Vice and playing with Rexy in the orchard everyday. In the last days of your life we felt your pain with great sadness and helplessness. We watched you fade away. No more worrying and no more pain. God has you now by the hand. Rest in peace. Your loving nephews Nick and John.
