Sorry to hear of your loss. Sending you all my heartfelt condolences. You now have an angel looking down upon you.

From: Ron and Florence Zazulak family
Relation: A wonderful Aunt

Aunt Minnie was a very kind and caring person, she was soft spoken, smiled and her coffee parties were actually Ukrainian food banquets with all the trimmings with at least three deserts and treats for everyone when we left. Stuffed. We are so fortunate to have these wonderful memories of your Parents. Orest, Rose, Joanie and Larry – our deepest sympathies and love to you all, she will be missed.

From: Michael Zazulak
Relation: Great Aunt

Aunt Minnie was a tremendous host. I remember visiting her when I was young – her bottomless menu finally bested my teenage appetite. My dad had to roll me out the door I was so stuffed. Lots of love to your family.
