Storms, Marie Zita #2 *

Marie Zita Storms (Tremblay) (1931-2006)

Born in Mattawa, Ontario, in 1931, Marie Zita Storms was one of eleven children born to Malvina and Lorenzo Tremblay.

Zita married Jack Storms of Niagara Falls, Ontario, and they started their family along the beautiful Niagara River at Black Creek. The family grew to include five boys: Curtis, Bruce, Greg, Kyle and Troy.

She raised her family as she was raised, with love and passion. She was saddened by the passing of their son, Kyle, at the age of 22 but showed her strength for the rest of the family, although we all knew this was a very difficult time in her life.

Zita loved life; she was a wonderful mother, a Roman Catholic believer, a very caring person.

What people said about Zita was that she was a true friend, someone who was there through troubled times as well as good times. She left an impression on everyone she met.

She battled cancer for the last four years of her life with the same passion and love that she gave everyone. We all tried as hard as we could, this is what she wanted, but in the end it was her time to rise to the other side.

Zita is sadly missed by all of her family, but what she left us allows us to continue our journey with confidence and passion. We miss you, Mom.

Jack, Curtis, Bruce, Greg, Kyle, Troy, Cherielyn, and Jennifer
