December 24, 1926 - December 20, 2020
Svetlana Petrovic, age 93, of Park Ridge, IL, formerly of Chicago, IL and Skokie, IL, passed away Sunday morning, December 20, 2020 in Glenview, IL. Beloved wife of the late Vojko; loving mother of George (Jacqueline) Petrovich, Susanna Tabic, Lillian (Melanie Kallal) Brandt, and also Ana (Nenad) Drca; cherished grandmother of Kristin (Nick) Schultz, Nicholas (Cristina) Tabic, Daniel (Kari) Petrovich, Tanya (Clay) Layne, Andrew (Lauren) Petrovich, and also Jamie Meister and Robyn Meister; proud great-grandmother of Saoirse Collins, Asher Petrovich, Margot Petrovich, Alex Tabic, Vinny Tabic, Logan Layne, and also Daniel and Nicholas Drca. Svetlana was a proud American born in Bosanski Novi, Bosnia. She survived both the Nazi occupation of her homeland and a communist dictatorship where her brother, sister and father disappeared and were never seen or heard from again, leaving Svetlana and her mother the only two surviving family members. It was her courage, heroism, and bravery that carried her through the Austrian Alps as she escaped to Salzburg, where she met, and married, her late husband Vojko. Together they came to America to start their lives anew and raise their family, whom Svetlana loved dearly. Svetlana’s mother came to the United States soon after to be reunited with her only surviving child. Svetlana is remembered as having been extremely generous and giving, and was always willing to lend a hand to those who needed it most. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
