» Ivanka Bubalo i njezina bijela kosuljica jos bdiju nad Bosnom
Ivanka Bubalo je poput ostalih Plehančana protjerana s Plehana, ali se ona nikad nije rastala, ni svojim umom ni srcem odvojila ni od Plehana, ni od Plehančana. Susreti s Ivankom bili su bogatstvo. Opredijeljena za trajne vrijednosti, bila je pravi prijatelj, u svakom, baš svakom našla je bar zrnce dobra. Krhka izgledom, snažna duha, spremna svakom i uvijek pomoći... Provela je i pomagala mnoge humanitarne aktivnosti, poticala na povratak prognanika kućama, tješila, hrabrila, pa je nisu bez razloga zvali Majkom Terezom Posavljaka. Mario Essert nam je poslao svoj članak objavljen u časopisu Prsten.
