On Sunday, June 21, 2020, Dianna Zadorozny, loving wife and auntie/great-auntie to MANY children, passed away at the age of 90 after a difficult struggle during her last months, but a fighter to the end.
Dianna had a passion for painting. She also loved to sew, to garden, to be outdoors in nature, and to cook AND eat! She combined her favorite hobbies to create extraordinary art and a home that was unique and always inviting and that reflected her many talents and DIY spirit. Many of these projects she tackled with her loving husband, Jerry, with whom she shared her love of nature, food, and gardening. Though they had no children of their own, their home and hearts were always open to the huge brood of the Zadorozny clan.
Dianna was able to live an independent life on her own terms in her own home almost to her last days, which was what was most important to her. She was able to achieve that in large part due to her tenacity, determination and unwillingness to give up or give in, and also because of the help and support of her trusted neighbor Eric and his family, for which our family is so grateful.
Dianna was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, a number of brothers and sisters, and ever so recently by her dear brother and fishing partner, Igor - a double blow to a family already in mourning.
