Maria Zarowny Death – Dead | Obituary – Passed Away
Maria Zarowny Death – Dead: A great loss was made known to InsideEko. As friends and families of the deceased are mourning the passing of their loved and cherished Maria Zarowny.
We are deeply saddened by the sudden loss of an Alumni Ook. Maria Zarowny was a member of the 2015-2016 NAIT Ooks Women’s Hockey team. She was known for her positive energy and contagious smile. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Zarowny Family
I met Maria in Bio20 when she sat down in my pod with 2 other friends. I didn’t realize what I was in for after that first day… with both the actual class and having a friend like Maria. We laughed a lot and cried even more as we endured “DJ Fraggs”. Plus, she gave me the biggest support as she laughed through my biggest embarrassment of a presentation that ended with me shaking and wanting to pass out. But that’s who she was. She made those horrible situations into something you could laugh about a few minutes after it happened. And then bring it up a few years later, and laugh even harder over it. Even though we didn’t end up having too many more classes together, it was never weird or distant whenever we’d catch up during random moments throughout the next 2 school years. We hadn’t spoken after I had moved to Edmonton, until one random summer day a few years ago when she walked into the Winners I was working. We looked at each other, went “WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?!?”, hugged and then caught up for the next 45 min (sorry work)
Right now it’s hard to imagine knowing a world without Maria. A world where this amazing human won’t walk into your work every now and then, punch you in the arm, and say “When are we hitting a beer together next?”. She always knew how to make a crappy work day 100x better with few words and a smirk.
I’m sorry we couldn’t have had that drink before covid hit… But I pray you’re having a time and a half as you get to play the role of guardian angel to so many people people who struggle knowing you’re gone. You truly were a blessing to all those who got to know you ❤️ RIP Maria Zarowny.. you absolute legend.
We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
