Šuro “George” Medurecan



On Tuesday March 5, 2019, Šuro “George” Medurecan of Edmonton passed away at the age of 73 years.

He will be very sadly missed but always remembered by his loving wife, Anica “Ann”: daughters, Kristina (Dayna) McNaughton and Jane (Frank) Balen: beloved grandchildren, Christopher and Brianna Balen and Cole McNaughton; brothers, Miro (Mary) of Edmonton, Slavko (Anica), Ante (Marija) and Franjo (Slavica); sisters, Marica (Josip) and Bozica (Tomislav), all of Croatia.

Šuro was predeceased by his parents, Ivan and Ana and brother, Martin.

George’s life journey began in Donji Miholjac, Croatia and ended in Edmonton, Alberta. He had a deep love and respect for his Croatian heritage, community family and faith. Even as his health began to fail and his days were but a few, he continued to show love through a smile, a touch of hand, a kind word and would even sing a few notes from a favorite song. Always ending with his most famous and often used catch phrase, “keep smiling”.

Prayers will be held at Connelly-McKinley Funeral Home, 10011 – 114 Street, Edmonton on Friday, March 8, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. A Funeral Mass will be held at Nativity of Mary Croatian Church, 10560 – 98 Street, Edmonton on Saturday, March 9, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. with interment to follow at Holy Cross Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Šuro’s memory may be made to the Alberta Cancer Foundation.

In Loving Memory of
Šuro “George” Medurecan
