October 14, 1929 - May 10, 2021

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Dragica, on May 10, 2021 at the age of 91 years.
Dragica was predeceased by her beloved husband Ivan; sisters-in-law, Jean Bovyn, Katie Gersak; brother Elo Gersak. She leaves to cherish her memory her children, Gloria (Al) Wilson, Sonya (Marcel) Carriere, and John Kraupnar; her grandchildren: Nathan, Tiffany (Andrew), Jennifer (Steven), and Eric (Jamie); her great-grandchildren: Emma, Alexa, Jacob, Alexis, Charlotte and Maddux; also her twin brother Drago Gersak and family.
Dragica was born on October 14, 1929 in Teharje, Slovenia, and immigrated to Canada to join her husband on November 10, 1958. Her greatest joy in life was any time spent with family, and she especially enjoyed preparing the Sunday family dinners which always included fresh vegetables from her garden. She also enjoyed the company of her many friends from Our Lady of Lourdes Roman Catholic Church, and her long walks when she would visit with everyone along the way.
A private family service will be held on Wednesday, May 19, 2021, at 2:00 p.m. at Glen Lawn Funeral Home, 455 Lagimodiere Blvd. Friends and extended family wishing to attend may virtually join the service at: Interment will follow at Glen Lawn Cemetery.
