We are heartbroken to announce the sudden passing of Zuzana Tanner, whose last moments were spent in her beloved garden in Hudson, Quebec.
Zuzana was a fiercely dedicated and cherished friend, sister, mother, and wife. She leaves behind her loving husband David, daughter Alexandra (Michelle), step-children Stacey (Sacha) and Darryl (Myriam), and her brother Karel Vesecky (Hanka). Beloved sister-in-law to the late Gerry (Maureen), Marilyn (Arnie), Sharon and aunt to many nieces and nephews.
Known affectionately by many as Susan or Suzie, she is also mourned by her closest friends Diane, Stanley, Jarka, and Caroline.
Zuzana was born in Prague, Czech Republic and defected to Canada in 1968 at age 19 to escape the Russian invasion and forge a new life.
Zuzana was an avid gardener, voracious reader, gracious hostess, culinary master, talented artist, and always an eternal optimist. She undertook her projects with enthusiasm and continually acquired new skills and talents, from oil painting to woodworking to milking cows.
She had a great laugh and sense of humour. She spent her days making the world around her beautiful and taking care of others. Zuzana was a devoted animal lover, tending to the many birds, squirrels, foxes, fish, and frogs in her garden, as well as her dogs over the years Gorkie, Pooka, and Cuffs, and her precious kitties Latke, Mischa, and Marty.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to your local SPCA in Zuzana’s honour.
