Novka Cokrlic, 47, Bismarck, died December 4, 2010, at Medcenter One Hospital, Bismarck. Services will be held at 11:00 am Thursday, December 9, at Parkway Funeral Service, 2330 Tyler Parkway, Bismarck. Visitation will be held one hour prior to the service at Parkway Funeral Service. Novka was born on September 28th, 1963 in Banja Luka, Bosnia, the daughter of Novak and Jelena (Djuric) Milosevic. She grew up in a small town near Dubica, Medjuvodje. Novka met her husband in 1979. Their daughter, Gordana, was born on December 11, 1984, and their son, Ilija was born on April 25, 1986. Novka and her family lived in Cerovljani, near Dubica, Bosnia. In 1995 Novka and her family left her home due to war, and moved to Kosovo. In 2000 they came to Bismarck. Novka worked as a dietary aide at Medcenter One hospital. Novka will be remembered by her smile, and the joy she radiated. She loved her family and friends dearly. Novka lost her husband in 2007, a loss that greatly affected her, and experienced many other hardships in her life, but she seldom complained. She brought out the best in people, and always put others before herself. In her free time she loved to crochet and garden. Novka is survived by her daughter Gordana, of Bismarck; her son, Ilija of Bismarck; and her mother Jelena of Medjuvodje, Bosnia. She was preceded in death by her husband Djuka, and her father Novak.
