She loved so many things from gardening, love of birds, baking, taking care of her family, learning to play the piano, cooking Serbian foods, always willing to help someone, etc. etc. We are comfortable in knowing she is with Uncle Freddy and all family and friends who went before her. May she rest in peace. She is our Aunt Milly and we will love her forever. Love, Martha, Bertha, Adam, Stan & Susan

We, too, share in celebrating the remembrance of the extraordinary woman you knew as a mother, and sister. A visit to her home was always one punctuated with culture, music, art, wonderful food and acts of kindness oft shared with the unspoken bond of love between friends. We share in your loss and will long remember the woman we had the good fortune to call “Aunt Milly”.

  7. To the entire Risovich family: I was saddened to read of your mother’s/grandmother’s passing. She of course is in a much better place, at peace and with Jesus. However, loosing a parent is difficult. I hope God comforts you now and always. My good friend Fr. Harold Moore always wanted to die during Easter season because he said:”it would be straight to Heaven! No stops on the way.” I believe he is right. Love to your family, Marilyn & Tommy

  8. Fred: Sorry to hear about your mother. Please know that you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time. With deepest sympathy, PETE & ERIN CUFFARO
