January 1, 1929 - January 7, 2019
Zorica passed away peacefully on January 7, 2019 in the St. Boniface Hospital. She remained generous and compassionate until the end.
Mom was born in Dugače-Duga Resa, Croatia and spent her childhood in Bosiljevo. At the age of 16 she moved to Zagreb where she later married Dusan Malnar. She also lived in Zurich, Switzerland for several years before coming to Canada with her family in 1970.
She will be lovingly missed by her daughter Marina Dalton, son-in-law Kenneth Dalton; beloved grandchildren Leslie Pesun (Robert), James Dalton (Ting), and Carl Dalton; her “angels” great-grandchildren, Edmond, Audrey, and Maelyn.
The family would like to express their appreciation for the kindness and compassionate care shown to her by Dr. Eva Smil, Dr. Carlos Jaramillo and the nursing staff of the St. Boniface Hospital.
Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11:00 a.m. Friday, January 18, 2019 in the St. Nicolas Tavelich Church, 2688 Main Street with a luncheon to follow. An interment in Zagreb, Croatia will take place at a later date.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the St. Boniface Hospital Foundation.
