On December 30th, 2021 we lost our treasured Andja (Dangubic) Zarkovich at The Oakville Trafalgar Hospital. Loving wife of the late Marko Zarkovich. Much loved sister to the late Nedjo, Danica and Mihailo of Herzegovina. She also leaves behind her loving brother Tomislav and sister-in-law Desanka. Not having had children of her own, her brother Tomislav’s children Nina(Paul-Michael) and Mihailo(Lorna) were the beneficiaries of all of her love and attention. She adored their children Natasha, Stefan and Maxim. Andja was born to Veljko and Stana Dangubic in Zvijerina, Herzegovina in 1934. Her early childhood was filled with the unspeakable loss and horrors of WWII. She gave all of herself as a young girl to keep her other brothers and sisters alive. This formed an incredibly close bond between them and is what ultimately led to her moving to Canada in 1980 to be closer to her brother and his children and where she married her late husband Marko. Marko and Andja remained inseparable until his death in 2001. Andja was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in her late 50’s and faced this with incredible dignity and courage. Andja was proud of her Serbian heritage and of her family the Dangubić’s and Kovać’s. She will forever remain a treasured inspiration to those she left behind and leaves a void that can never be filled.
The Dangubic family would like to thank the staff of the Mount Nemo Christian Nursing Home for the two plus decades of attentive care they gave to our beloved Andja. Our family became their family. Thank you to Mira from Mount Nemo for everything she did for Andja. Truly will never forget the love and admiration Andja received from them.
Andja will be brought directly from J. Scott Early Funeral Home, 21 James Street, Milton Ontario L9T 2P3 to Holy Transfiguration Monastery.
Viewing will be at the Holy Transfiguration Monastery, 7470 McNiven Rd. Campbellville, Ontario L0P 1B0 on Tuesday January 11th from 9:30 a.m. and services to start at 11:00 am. Her interment will immediately follow the funeral service, on the monastery grounds.
In lieu of flowers the family is requesting donations be made to the Holy Transfiguration Monastery in memory of Andja Zarkovich.
