Former Yugoslav First Lady Jovanka Broz Dies
Jovanka Broz, who spent three decades as Yugoslavia's first lady but was left stateless and forgotten as the socialist federation built by her husband Josip Broz Tito dissolved in war, died on Sunday (October 20) in a Belgrade hospital. She was 88 and had lived largely in isolation since the 1980 death of long-time Yugoslav leader Tito, squirreled away in a crumbling state-owned villa in the Serbian capital without a passport or ID.
