April 15, 1930 – November 9, 2012

Mira Bencic Vidicek passed away peacefully on Friday November 9, 2012 in Calgary, Alberta.

In spite of being afflicted with Parkinson’s, Mira strived to have a full and social life. Born in Croatia in 1930, she immigrated to Montreal, Canada in 1957 with her husband Darko and their two children, Liliane and Kris. She spent the early part of her life living in Montreal and working to make a better life for her family. Mira and Darko moved to Calgary in 1978 where they established a wonderful supportive group of friends.

Sadly, Darko passed away 2 years ago and her son Kris passed away in 1984. She is survived by her daughter Liliane, and her grandchildren. Her grandson Karl, his wife April and their 2 children, Brooke and Christopher, were very important to her and brought joy to her life every time they visited her. She is now at peace and may God shine her path to her loved ones waiting for her.

Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Fish Creek Chapel (14441 Bannister Road S.E.) on Thursday, November 15, 2012 at 10:30 a.m. Please forward condolences through
