Annie passed away peacefully on Tuesday, June 4, 2019 in her 88th year.

She came to Schumacher, Ontario in 1952 with her mother Ljuba and brother Vinko (Vince) to join her father Vid Frankovich. Vid spent years going back and forth to Bosiljevo, Croatia, while he established a Canadian home for his family. Annie was a courageous, hard worker, who cared for these now deceased family members as they went through their own passages. Without complaint and in defiance of self-doubts, she did whatever was needed to care for family. In her forties Annie went back to school, not only completing an education in accounting at Niagara College, but graduating at the top of her class. She worked until suffering a debilitating stroke sixteen years ago, followed by a succession of health issues. Annie, a longstanding member of the Croatian Fraternal Union, was an embodiment of the immigrant survivor. Caregivers were often stunned by her dogged insistence on attending to tasks that the far more able bodied required assistance with. That was Annie, in a nutshell. Annie will be greatly missed by her children Walter (Laurie) and Daniel as well as Frankovich, Bogdanic, and Laslavic relatives.

Dear Walter

I didn't know your mother, but after viewing your family pictures, I feel I got a glimpse into the many phases of her life. Your eulogy gave an insight into her strong , supportive and dedicated character where her family was concerned. The fond memories of your mother you and your family hold in the heart will always be a wonderful tribute to her.

It's always hard to let go of a mother's hand, no matter what our age.

With sincere sympathy, Annette & Ignace Vuckovic
