Zanza Matkovich Aleksic, age 100, born in Morinj, Montenegro (formerly Yugoslavia) in Feb 1912, passed in Cupertino, CA on Oct 14, 2012. She is predeceased by her parents, Ilka and Ilija Djucic and four brothers, her first husband, Ljubo Matkovich and second husband, Ignjat Aleksic. She is survived by her three children, Michail Matkovich, Marlene Jacura, and Robert Matkovich, three grandchildren, Kim Matkovich, Richard Matkovich and Monette Lindblom, and six great grandchildren, Timothy and Brian Barbarick, Zachary and Leticia Lindblom and Nikolai and Jessica Matkovich.
Zanza was raised in an idyllic setting overlooking the bay of Kotor. She continued schooling on to an advanced degree in Home Economics. She met and married Ljubo Matkovich, also from Morinj, and emigrated with her children to the US in 1954.
Her second husband was Ignjat Aleksic and they lived continuously in Santa Clara County. Both Zanza and Ignjat became very involved in the creation of the new St. Michael's Serbian Orthodox Church in Saratoga, and served as officers in the church's early years.
