<div itemprop="description">It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Rafica Glavan on August 18 2020, in Kirkland, at the age of 70. <br> <br>She was the devoted wife of Tomislav Paleka for 48 years. She will be greatly missed by her children Mirjana (Martin) and Melita. She will be fondly remembered by her grandsons Adrian, Luka and Phoenix. She also leaves behind her brother Bruno and her nieces and nephews, as well many other family and friends in Montreal, the US and Croatia. <br> <br>She was selfless and generous, loved cooking especially her delicious fish recipes and listening to Dalmatian music. <br> <br>The family will receive condolences on Sunday, August 23 from 1pm to 6pm, at Rideau Funeral Home (4275 des Sources blvd, DDO, 514-685-3344). <br> <br>She will be laid to rest in her beloved Croatia, under the warm Dalmatian sun surrounded by fig and olive trees, where her soul will forever rest in peace. <br> <br>A donation to Jewish General Hospital Foundation would be appreciated. <br></div>
