Ennia Leticia Pavlovic

Ennia Leticia Pavlovic, beloved Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother, passed away gracefully, with her sons at her bedside on June 10, 2018.

Ennia was born on November 15,

1933 to Eufemia and Antonio Gasperini in Istria, Italy (now Croatia). She married in 1952 to Milan Pavlovic in the former Yugoslavia. Soon after in 1957 they moved to Sydney, Australia, raising her family there for the next 10 years. In 1970 the family moved to Chicago to be close to her only sister, Maria Iavarone.

Ennia moved to Seattle in 1990 to join her sons here, and loved the city immediately, especially the Queen Anne community where she lived for 25 years. She was a devout Catholic and when able, always looked forward to attending mass at St. Anne's Catholic Church.

Ennia loved Italian opera, the theater and the ballet. But her family was everything and Ennia was deeply loved by her family. She always had a smile and a kind word for everyone. She was admitted to Swedish Hospital on May 15th, and then on June 2nd found out she had just become a "Bisnona" (Great-GrandMother) to twins. She was beyond overwhelmed with joy and happiness at the news.

She is survived by her two sons: Z. Mark and Dan; five

grandchildren: Danielle, Anthony, Nicole, Valentina and Veronica; and two great grandchildren: James B'Lou and Wesley Denver; her sister (and best friend) Maria Iavarone, her niece Carla Iavarone, and nephew Jerry Iavarone. Ennia also has special love in her heart for her daughters-in-law Kari and Zella.

The Pavlovic Family would also like to thank the amazing staff at the Swedish Cherry Hill Hospital for their loving care of Ennia over the past three weeks, and in prior years.

A Celebration of Ennia's life is planned for noon on Thursday, June 14th at the Butterworth Funeral Home on Queen Anne.
