Helen Drljacic, 90, passed away on Tuesday, September 15, 2020 in Elkhart General Hospital.
Helen was born on May 19, 1930 in South Bend to the late Steven and Anna (Dabic) Popovich. Helen was also preceded in death by her husband, Vladan Drljacic; and sisters, Jeanne Tezich, Mary Popovich, and Mildred Popovich.
Helen is survived by her daughters, Dayna Wagner of South Bend, and Tijana Drljacic of Coral Springs, Florida; and grandson, Ryan Wagner of Miami, Florida; a niece, many great and great-great nieces and nephews, along with many cousins.
Helen was an active member of Sts. Peter and Paul Serbian Orthodox Church for many years. She was a graduate of Riley High School. She worked at Studebaker as a stenographer for 8 years and later as a Administrative Assistant at AM General for 29 years. She was an avid reader, loved to watch movies, bake and was an amazing cook. She was dearly loved by everyone and if you needed advice, she was your go-to for a straight and honest opinion.
For the past few years, Helen and her family were grateful for the dedicated, compassionate care she received from Miller's Merry Manor in Wakarusa, Indiana.
