Rada is the last survived sibling of 6 children and an identical twin. Born in Serbia to a family who had a large farm estate. She received a degree in criminal law. She married Alex Milutinovich in 1963 and in that same year due to oppression, she came to America for freedom and a better life for her 7-year-old daughter. She then immediately enrolled in English classes.

She became active in her local monastery. She cooked on Sundays and for bookings at the church, helped Sunday school classes and choir, helped run the summer camp for 6 wks each summer and led the kids folk dancing group that traveled to different churches for programs. In that time we became a part of a great family of friends.

She worked in a country club kitchen until able to save enough money to open her own cleaning company and held a few lawyer office buildings for 35 years. She was held in high reguards by them.

Confident now, she brought over her mother, father, and 2 sisters and hired them so they were able to begin an American life as well. Her mother was 60 but strong like her and began to learn to speak, read and write.

Rada felt privileged to live in a democratic country and took part in campaigns and elections - well known to the Mayors, Judges, and Senators.

She was a devoted grandmother, never missed a birthday, graduation, or special event in their lives; was never rich but, gave all that she had freely. She has taught me a love of family, commitment, sacrifice, unending support, strong work ethic and to be there for good and bad.

You will be very missed. You made gatherings lighthearted and festive.
Many lives were enhanced by your commitment to family.

Your loving and grateful daughter,
Milena.
