Ivanka Lukić passed away at the age of 61 on February 4, 2019, at Juravinski Hospital in Hamilton, Ontario, after battling cancer for several months.
She is survived by her husband Dušan Lukić; her children Maja Lukić and Dejan Lukić; her brother Dušan Grbić and his family; and numerous relatives and close friends.
She was born Ivanka Grbić on August 20, 1957 in Bački Brestovac, Serbia, in the former Yugoslavia. She studied medicine at the University of Belgrade, where she met her husband Dušan. They subsequently moved to Croatia and had two children, Maja and Dejan. For a time, they lived and practiced medicine in Murter, a small, beautiful island on the Dalmatian coast in Croatia. In 1994, they left Yugoslavia for Canada, where they became Canadian citizens. Over the years, they also lived in Oak Park, Illinois, Hollywood, Florida, and Beverly Hills, California. While in Chicago, Ivanka worked in cancer research at the Rush University Medical Center.
As a wife and mother, Ivanka was warm, loving, generous, courageous, and protective. As a friend, she was utterly selfless and dedicated her life to caring for others. She loved to travel and in recent years, had fallen in love with Greece. She leaves behind grieving family and friends who will deeply miss her.
Friends and family are invited to a time of visitation from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Monday February 11, 2019, at Bay Gardens Funeral Home, 1010 Botanical Drive, Burlington, ON L7T 1V1.
