It is with deep sadness that the family of Nevenka Pavlovic announces her peaceful passing on January 18, 2020 following a brief illness. Nevenka is lovingly remembered by her husband of 53 years Dubravko (Kreso) Pavlovic and her daughters, Jasenka Pavlovic and Martina (Peter) Franchi, as well as many caring extended family members and friends. Born in Velika Kopanica, Croatia, Nevenka moved with her family to Canada in 1975 and committed her life as a dedicated and loving mother and wife. In addition to raising her family, she worked outside the home at Surrey Memorial Hospital until her retirement in 2005. Nevenka was an avid gardener, loved cooking and baking as well as spending time with family and close friends. She had a genuine warmth, compassion and generosity which will be missed by all. As expressions of sympathy, memorial donations to the BC Cancer Agency in Nevenka’s memory would be appreciated by the family.
