She immigrated to Canada with her loving sister, Mira, to join their parents in 1956. It was in Toronto that she met the love of her life, Peter Posavac, and they were soon wed.
Their life together was a happy and prosperous one, with their two young daughters they set down roots in Oakville. Her sister, Mira, and her husband, Blaz, with their children, Stjepan (Paula), and Diana, also settled in Oakville, along with her predeceased parents, Milka and Mirko Putric.
