Marija Bumbak Obituary
Marija Anka Bumbak

Our beloved Mother, Baba and Prababa, Marija Anka Bumbak has gone to heaven to be with her late husband, two young daughters and God. Baba Mare was born September 24th 1929 in Prvic Luka during some of the bleakest times in history. She survived hunger, illness and being captured during WWII. Through everything she kept strong and worked multiple jobs to put food on the table for her two sons, Nikola (Elli) and Ante Bumbak. Baba Mare emigrated to New York with her sons to provide them a better life and to be with her sister. Later she came to her final stop, San Pedro where she led a quiet life working in her garden while raising her two beloved granddaughters, Meri Bumbak and Keti (Niksa) Barbic. She taught the girls everything and they were her pride and joy. The night before Baba passed, her great grandchildren, Marcelo, Nikola and Elli Barbic visited her. Baba blew them kisses and enjoyed their company. Before leaving the youngest told her "Baba volim te! Laku noc". That memory will live with the family forever. Baba leaves behind her beloved family in New York and many cousins in Croatia. The loss of such a loving selfless person is unimaginable. She will be taken back to her beloved Prvic Luka to lay next to her husband, two daughters and mother. Visitation will be on Monday December 14, 2015 from 6-7pm followed by a Rosary Service at 7:00 pm at McNerney's Mortuary Chapel. In lieu of flowers please plant something edible in your garden and say a prayer to Sveti Ante. Babo pocivaj u miru Bozjem! Please sign the guestbook at mcnerneysmortuary.com or dailybreeze.com.
