Obituary Condolences

Marija Stephens. We have lost my beloved wife, Marija; a devoted mother to our children, Olivija, nine, and Nigel, five; a very caring daughter to her mother, Mary, and late father, Joseph; a wonderful sister to Phil and a loyal friend to legions. On July 10, Marija was killed in a car accident outside of Atlanta. There will be a Mass for Marija, 10:30 a.m. Saturday, July 17, at St. Jerome's Catholic Church in Chicago. We have yet to comprehend the enormity of our loss. What we know is that we have Marija's legacy: the unconditional love for her family and friends, the beautiful home which she created for us and the wonderful family traditions she gave us. She is survived by her husband, Cory; daughter, Olivija; son, Nigel; mother, Mary Lisnich; brother, Philip Lisnich, his wife, Angie Lisnich, their daughters, Mija and Ivy; grandmother, Mara Projic; and countless cousins, nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her father, Joseph Lisnich. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in Marija's name to Children's Memorial Hospital.
