Mirjana Giaconi MD Obituary
September 14, 1944 – March 26, 2017

Mirjana Giaconi MD, beloved wife, mother, and grandmother, passed away on Sunday, March 26, 2017 in San Pedro, California surrounded by her family. Born and raised in Croatia, she attended medical school at the University of Zagreb where she met her future husband, Mirko. After earning their medical degrees and marrying in Zagreb, they embarked on a life in the United States in the early 1970s, eventually settling in Rolling Hills, California. She was first and foremost a wonderful and dedicated mother who always sacrificed herself for family. With her seemingly infinite energy, she simultaneously and almost singlehandedly managed children, household, garden, and a thriving medical practice. Rarely has a mother and wife given more of herself to further the wellbeing of her family. Her family will particularly miss the delicious meals and desserts she prepared from scratch that brought them together, her strong sense of order, and her wholehearted laugh at a funny story. She is survived by her husband of 47 years, Mirko; her children and their spouses, JoAnn (Charles) and Joseph (Shawn); and 4 grandchildren, Ava, Skylar, Christian, and Andrew. A memorial mass will be held at Mary Star of the Sea on Saturday, April 8 at 10:30 in the morning. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, please make donations in her name to either the Benevolent Society of Sv. Duje or the Sv. Nikolas Society. Donations can be sent to the Croatian-American Club, 631 W. 9th Street, San Pedro, CA 90731. Please sign the guestbook at mcnerneysmortuary.com or dailybreeze.com.
