PAUKNER, Gordana

August 29, 1955 – Bosanski Brod, Bosnia
January 1, 2015 – Calgary, Alberta

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Gordana Paukner on Thursday, January 1, 2015, following a courageous battle with cancer. She is survived by her mother Verica and daughter Krinka in Calgary, Canada, and sister Ljiljana in Kamenari, Montenegro.

Gordana was caring, strong and elegant with flare for the arts and everything beautiful. She was an amazing, exquisite woman who was always generous and kind towards everyone. She emitted class and charm wherever she went and was greatly loved by many. She will be sorely missed by her family and friends.

At Gordana’s request, there will be no service. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in her name to the Meow Foundation, a charity she held dear to her heart.

Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Gordana Paukner, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McInnis & Holloway Funeral Homes, Chapel of the Bells, 2720 Centre Street North, Telephone: 403-276-2296.

Offer Condolence for the family of PAUKNER, Gordana

    I am so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing as I was not aware that she was ill. I live in your building and remember how much she loved my leopard skin design grocery cart which I gave her; would often see her heading off to shop, cart behind her, always so immaculately dressed – would smile each time at the sight. She will remain in my thoughts.

    Our heartfelt condolences for your mom’s (Gordana’s) passing! It was a shocking surprise to us to learn that your mom – kind, fashionable and discreet lady with friendly and nice personality, has passed away. We remember time when we first met her, you and your grandma in Virovitica, and spent numerous hours in getting together and hiking surrounding hills where we lived. Also, here in Calgary we had enjoyable hours while visiting each other.
    We and our families will miss Gordana and keep her in our thoughts!
