Our beloved Dara "Teta" Morovich entered the gates of heaven at age 60 on June 30, 2013. She passed away in her sleep at the home of her sister, Josephine Galante. Dara was born on February 14, 1953 in Zman, Croatia. At the age of 9 she traveled to America and was raised by her aunt, Skolastika Morovich and uncle, Joe Morovich. She lived in San Pedro for 51 years. As aunt, sister, cousin, and friend, Dara touched the lives of everyone around her. Through her passion for helping others and generous spirit her selfless dedication to her family and friends attributed to all the joys and fulfillment she received out of life. Whether it was a trip to Las Vegas or Croatia, Dara loved to travel and share her experiences with those closest to her. Surviving Dara are her brothers, Deso (Debi) Hrboka and Joe (Angie) Morovich, sister, Josephine (Gerald) Galante, niece, Jamie Harper; nephew, Sean Hrboka; cousins, Gerald Galante, Jr., Donna-Marie Ericson, Patricia Sugden, Denise Johnson, Joanne Morovich, Janet Kaiser, Joseph Morovich, Jr., and John Morovich; and best friend, Helen (Boccanfuso) Bayak. Dara started her career 36 years ago for Maersk Group, APT Terminal and retired an ILWU Vessel Planner in 2012. Those close to Dara had the pleasure of celebrating her retirement with her in December, 2012. A memorial service to celebrate Dara's life will be held on Friday, July 5, 2013, 10:30 am at Mary Star of the Sea Church. At Dara's request she will be laid to rest at her family plot in Zman, Croatia. Donations may be made in Dara's name to her church in Zman in care of Josephine Galante.
