Ivica (1926) was born in Ljubljana. She and her sister Berta were the youngest and were born when her parents were a little bit older. When she was young, she spent her days working her family’s fields and her mother sold the crops at the farmer’s market. She finished the sales academy. She loved working, was conscientious, and was trusted with even the most responsible positions. Despite hard times, she and her co-workers got on well and helped each-other out. Her favorite way of relaxing was hiking and picking flowers and mushrooms. She climbed mount Triglav at least ten times, her first time being in 1946.
