Radica Arsovska, of Ellicott City, MD passed away on January 10, 2021, after a brief hospitalization due to congestive heart failure.
Radica Arsovska was born on April 6, 1934, in Kumanovo, Macedonia. She was a faithful Orthodox Christian who as a little girl survived the horrors of WWII and the consequent communist overtake of her beloved country. She was overjoyed to see Macedonia gain its independence on September 8, 1991. She moved to the United States in 2000 where she lived with her daughter and son-in-law and cared for her two granddaughters whom she loved more than anything.
Growing up in post-war Macedonia was not easy, but Radica grew to become a successful businesswoman in the banking industry. She was praised and respected by her colleagues and clients for her willingness to help when needed and her high level of dedication to her job.
She met the love of her life, Milorad Arsovski at a community dance. Their fairytale romance started that day and included having two wonderful children together. It lasted until his early passing in 1991. She missed him deeply ever since and spoke about him daily.
Her passing leaves a void for many and she will be dearly missed by her son Zvonko Arsovski, daughter Anita Arsovska-Heffernan, granddaughters Ellie and Sonya, daughter-in-law Janka Arsovska, son-in-law Thomas Heffernan, sisters Nada Kosutic and Verica Ristic, nieces Jelena, Suzana, and Anita, and their families, her friends Joanne Dow and Mina Thomson who were like daughters to her, and many other family members and friends whose lives she touched.
