Gloria Gale Zasitko
Passed on April 21, 2019
After a short but courageous battle, our dear sister, aunt, cousin, niece, and friend passed away on Sunday, April 21, 2019, one day shy of her 66th birthday. She was predeceased by her parents Bill and Mary and is survived by her sister, Margie (Leif); brother, Randy (Kristen) and their families. Gloria was small in size but feisty in spirit with strong convictions regarding right and wrong. She was employed for many years by the Manitoba Teachers Society until the diagnosis of an auto immune disorder forced her to leave work. She learned to live with her illness and became accustomed to her new lifestyle. She especially took great pride and had much love for her nieces and nephews and their families. Gloria NEVER forgot a birthday and always sent humorous limericks or poems to them on special days: Greg (Deanna) and family, Holly and family, Justin, and Lauren. Her 4 legged “child“, Ebony was her best bud, visiting her in the hospital one day prior to her passing. Gloria possessed a sharp and witty mind whether successfully completing the puzzle challenges in the daily newspaper or offering her opinion on a specific subject. She seldom strayed from her morals and beliefs. We will miss your compassion, your thoughtfulness, and your unique sense of humour. Special thanks are extended to Robert (Cancer Care) and Monique (Palliative nurse). Without her caring neighbours and friends, especially Nathalie, Robert & Dawn, Jenny, Joyce, and Brenda; Gloria’s journey would have been much more stressful. You are jewels. You are invited to a casual gathering celebrating Gloria’s life, reminiscing and sharing stories, to be held at Heritage Arts Center, Quarry Park, 166 Main St, Stonewall MB on Tuesday, April 30, at 2 pm. Please, no flowers, but should you so desire, donations to Winnipeg Pet Rescue Centre or the Winnipeg Humane Society in Gloria’s name would be appreciated.
