Klara was born in Bosnia and Herzegovina of Croatian descent. She immigrated to Canada with her late husband, Vinko, and their son in 1962. They settled in Winnipeg until Vinko's passing in 2016. She was married to Vinko for 62 years. While living in Croatia, she worked on both livestock and crop farms while maintaining a home and family. Before immigrating to Canada Klara and her family lived in Italy in a refugee camp where she worked in the kitchen. After settling in Winnipeg, she worked as a seamstress. She enjoyed gardening, cooking, baking, and sewing. Her family were always the grateful recipients of the fruits of her labor. One of her favourite pastimes was going to the cottage at Winnipeg Beach with her cherished husband, and family.
In 2017 she moved to Gibbons, Alberta to be closer to her family.
The family would like to thank the staff at Kipnes Centre for Veterans in Edmonton, Alberta for their care and compassion.
