Svitlana Yelimeshyna

April 25, 1967 ~ September 12, 2023 (age 56) 56 Years Old


Svitlana (Lana) Yelimeshyna passed away unexpectedly on September 12th in her home in San Jose, California at the age of 56.

She is survived by her parents Valentina and Constantine Litvinov, sister Viktorya Litvinova, daughter Alice and her two grandchildren Abigail and Nicholas.

Lana was a charismatic, loving, and witty mother and grandmother who thought the world of her grandkids (whom she showered endlessly with gifts). She was also a caring mother to an African Grey Parrot named Shura who remained with her in her last hours on earth.

Lana will be greatly missed. We can only hope she is relaxing on a beach somewhere like she always dreamt of doing.

In lieu of flowers and to commemorate Lana’s love for birds, please donate to the Santa Barbara Bird Sanctuary (sbbird.org/donate).

To send flowers to the family, please visit our floral store.
