Mary Perkovic Gospodinoff Obituary
MARY PERKOVIC GOSPODINOFF (MIMI) Age 94, born 2/15/1920 passed away very peacefully and beautifully on Monday, January 5, 2015 in Riverside, California, her home for the past 58 years. She was born in Stajnica, Yugoslavia and at the age of 15 immigrated to the United States. She lived 20 years in West Virginia. While visiting family in Canada she met Jim Gospodinoff. They were married in Niagra Falls, Canada in 1953 and began their 61 year marriage. Mimi, who was named by her grandkids, enjoyed people and socializing. She was an excellent cook and her gift of sewing, crocheting, knitting, and most needle work was second to none. She loved her husband, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren and took much pride in them and their achievements. Mimi is survived by her husband Jim; son George (Peng); daughter Kathi Garrett (Rance); 4 grandchildren (Staci, Levi, Heidi, and Luke); and 4 great-grandchildren (Abigail, Nathan, Mathew, and Logan). Per her request, Mimi will be cremated and there will be no service or memorial. We will always remember her in our hearts, something we carry with us where ever we go. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to or a family in need in her honor.
