JANINA (NINA) BURDZ
Peacefully on Monday, November 13, 2023, Nina Burdz passed away at St. Boniface Hospital at the age of 91, with her family by her side.
Mom was predeceased by her parents Michael and Antonina Michalczyk and by her loving husband of 65 years, Victor Sr. She was also predeceased by brothers-in-law John, Paul, Walter and Boris Burdz along with her dear sister-in-law Sonia Burdz and cousin Mel Rusiecki.
Left to cherish and treasure Nina's everlasting memory are her son Victor, daughter Nora (Milan) Zahrobsky and grandchildren Brett Burdz (Alicia) Rachel Burdz (Scott) and great granddaughter, Luna Miscavish. She is also survived by her brother-in-law Peter (Diane) Burdz and sisters-in-law Josie and Irene Burdz along with numerous nieces, nephews and dear friends.
Nina was born in Zalesie, Belarus on April 18, 1932 and immigrated to Canada in 1953. Soon after she married the love of her life, our dad, Victor Sr.
Mom was a tireless hard worker who was blessed with golden hands, anything she did was done with love and perfection. Nina was a true friend to all who knew her. She had this special quality and loyalty to her friends and family, anything that was told to her in strictest confidence was put in her own personal vault never to be repeated. Our mother always kept her word.
As great of a mother as she was, she was an even greater grandmother to Brett and Rachel. Our mom and dad devoted their retirement years to their grandchildren. Together they were the true epitome of what perfect grandparents should be. They truly were in a Class of their own.
Goodbye wasn't in Nina's vocabulary and it was a word our mom never used. Instead, she always said, "Till we meet again."
Our family would like to thank her wonderful homecare nurses Amanda and Paulo for their daily visits of loving care and compassion while our mom resided at River Ridge II.
Funeral Service will be held at Cropo Funeral Chapel, 1442 Main Street on Thursday, November 23rd at 10:30 am. Interment will follow at Brookside Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers which are respectfully declined, our family would rather you instead consider a donation to: Diabetes Canada 1300-522 University Avenue Toronto, Ontario M5G 2R5.
Rest in peace our dearest Nina, "Till we meet again."
