Rosalind Joanne Zurkowsky, 73, of Toronto, passed away on January 8th , 2024 after a courageous three month battle with cancer.

Roz was born April 12th, 1950, to Michael and Regina Zurkowsky in Toronto, ON. After graduating with a bachelor’s in nursing, she continued on to get her master’s in education with a focus on marital family therapy as her true passion was to assist women and children experiencing physical and emotional abuse.

Known for her compassion, big heart, and fiery attitude, Roz will be dearly missed by all who knew her. The Zurkowsky-Simpson family asks that she be remembered for the joy she brought to others in life not the sadness of her passing. She is survived by her husband Glenn, her children and their partners Aaron and Joy and Zachary and Sabrina, her grandchildren Parker and Noah, her brother Herb, her nephew and his partner Ryan and Morgan, their two children Nora and Quinn, and her beloved friend of 68 years Ruth Levkoe.
