(nee Svorinic) of North Bergen, NJ passed away peacefully on January 11, 2019 at the age of 70. Born and raised in the tiny Croatian village of Sestrunj, she met her late husband Nikola when she moved to Australia with her late parents. While in Sydney, she got married and gave birth to her eldest daughter, Miranda. After a few years, her little family of three became a family of four when they moved to America and Dinka gave birth to her youngest child, Linda.
She is survived by her two daughters, Miranda and Linda, brother Peter, two sons-in-law, Joe and Karl, and four grandchildren, Raven, Antony, Armand and Amanda, whom all love and miss her dearly.
For those who wish to pay their respects, the wake will be held at Vainieri Funeral Home located at 5923 John Fitzgerald Kennedy Blvd, North Bergen, NJ 07047. The funeral will take place in Luka, Croatia as her last wish was to be buried next to the love of her life while overlooking the Adriatic Sea.
Dinka had many ailments, including congestive heart failure. She had an enlarged heart, both literally and figuratively, and treated everyone with respect. Although she is physically gone, we encourage everyone to keep her spirit alive by being kind to one another.
