Vojka Markica Moore Arden Hills

Loving and remarkable lady passed away March 5 at age 98. Preceded in death by her parents, Zuva and Antun Petkovic of Yugoslavia; four siblings; husband Larry Moore and sons John and Tony Gardenal. Survived by daughter, Deanna (Karl) Bakke; sons Steve and Mark Moore; grandchildren Carrie Shuman, Aaron Gardenal, Rachel Stene, Daniel Bakke, Rebecca and Elizabeth Moore and nine great-grandchildren.

Vojka came to America at age 18 with an eighth-grade education and graduated from college with a Social Science degree in her 50s. Her jobs included seamstress, home economics instructor and teacher’s aide for disabled students. Vojka’s creative ability was shown in garments she made: beautiful sweaters she knitted; needlework; painting and writing. Her strong faith helped her endure difficult circumstances with a thankful attitude.

We rejoice that her spirit is with the Lord. Services are scheduled in California on April 25, her 99th birthday.
