Ankica (Ana) Milinkovic

25 March, 195616 October, 2020

Passed away peacefully on Friday, October 16, 2020 after a courageous and lengthy battle with cancer in her 65th year.

Left to mourn and heartbroken is her husband of 42 years Mile (Mike) Milinkovic. Loving mama to Marianne and Tomislav Mesic, Rosemary and Mladen Josipovic, Johnny and Lilly Milinkovic. Beloved baka to her adoring grandchildren Marko, Daniella, Marko, Gabriela, Niko, Rudy and Mikey. Predeceased by her mother Marija (2016) and father Janko (1971). Survived by her aunt Danica Matesic, loving sister Katica and Mate Strgar, sister-in-law Vlatka (late Zvonko) Zivcic, mother-in-law Marija Milinkovic and many nieces and nephews with their families. She will be remembered fondly by her extended family, cousins, kumovi and friends in Canada and Croatia.

Ankica was selfless, humble and had a strong love and devotion for her family and her faith. Her children and grandchildren meant the world to her as she did to them. Her greatest joy was spending time with her family. She was happiest having her family gathered at the table to enjoy her cooking and baking. There was never a shortage of food or palacinke. She worked hard all her life to provide and support her family at Levi's, the family business, Mike-Cro-An Auto Service and caring for her grandchildren. We will forever cherish the happy memories you worked so hard to make for us. We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to Father Marko, all the LHIN staff, VON nurses and Paramed PSWs for your ongoing commited and compassionate care. Greatest appreciation to Elizabeth and Wendy for your support.

My deepest condolences to your family at the loss of a wife, mother and grandmother.
Over the many years that I have known your family, there is no doubt she was the glue that held your wonderful family together. I also gave no doubt that she has passed on her personality and values to all of you. She may be gone from this earth but lives on in all of you.

We were so saddened to hear about the loss of your wife, mom, and baka. Our family is keeping you and your family in our thoughts and prayers. Your mom was such a beautiful lady both inside and outside. The thing I remember most about her was that she was always smiling and such a gentle and kind-hearted person. She will be missed by all who knew her. Sending you love. xox

Mike and Johnny and family:

I am sending my sincerest condolences from myself and Hellen. I wish you peace during this difficult time.

Ankica was admired so much by my mom when they worked together. My mom thought Ankica was a really good and kind hearted person.

When I met her a few times at the at the garage, I had the same feeling as my mom.

May she rest in peace.

Sincerely, Joe Bersinic
