PINTARIC, Juliana - It is with broken hearts that the family of Juliana announces her passing at the age of 82 years, on October 24, 2020, at Humber River Hospital.
She leaves behind her son Drazen John, daughter-in-law Oriana, grandchildren Sarah, Steven and Alexander. In Germany, she leaves behind her brother-in-law, niece and nephew and ten great nieces and nephews.
Juliana was predeceased by her loving partner Herb and her dear sister Anna.
Despite her declining health over the years, it never deterred her love of life, devotion and endless love for her family and friends. Juliana was a wonderful mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, aunt and friend. Her dry sense of humor and sharp wit matched her fierce independence and resourcefulness. She was a handy woman who did chores around her house including painting and tile work.
She was an avid gardener, great cook and baker. She was known for her baked goods such as her cookies, blueberry treats and her signature rum cake which she graciously made for everyone who touched her heart. Over the years, Juliana grew an impressive flower garden that she was very proud of. She always found great joy in nurturing her gardens with her cat Buddy by her side.
She was kind and giving and a protector of animals in need. She took in many a stray cat over the years. She adored her grandchildren, Sarah, Steven and Alexander and was very proud of them all. The best of her is in them.
We will hold and carry her endless love and her memory in our hearts, always. Arrangements with Ward funeral homes.
